Neuronium - Quasar / Vuelo Quimico: The Harvest Years 2 x CDs

SKU 21-MIG 02882
This is the first two albums by Neuronium, who were a Spanish synthesizer / space music trio of the late 70s who released these two on Harvest.
Always very hard to find, and both never before on CD, and by far their best / most spacey works, this set collecting them both is highly recommended for fans of classic 70s style space music.

“Starting as a quintet with the lineup bassist, drummer, guitarist and two keyboardists in the mid-1970s, Neuronium soon shrank to a trio with the Belgian musician Michel Huygen (keyboards, synthesizer) and Albert Giménez (guitars) and Carlos Guirao (keyboards, synthesizer) from Spain.
While the musical direction as a quintet was still in the direction of progressive and psychedelic rock, the trio formation with role models and preferences such as Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream or Popul Vuh oriented itself more in the direction of the "Berlin School" and fully committed itself to the genre of electronic and cosmic music.
The band signed up in 1977 with famous British label HARVEST created by EMI in 1969 to market progressive rock music and at that time already had well-known artists like Barclay James Harvest, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd or Kevin Ayers under contract. Neuronium's debut album from the same year, "Quasar 2C361", cased as Spain's first "cosmic music" album. One year later, "Vuelo Quimico", dedicated to the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe, was recorded, a guest being Nico, ex-singer of Velvet Underground.
Concert and festival appearances follow this second album, proving already Neuronium's great popularity. Albert Giménez left, however, the founding trio exactly after this work has made its mark.”
