Sand - Desert Navigation CD

A previously unreleased album by the Krautrock band famous for the one album they released in their lifetime, Golem.

"Previously unreleased album by German trio Sand, recorded 1973-1982. Live events in the quarry and an archaic sound formed the background music of the young atomic age. In the meantime, after endless trance garage sessions, Sand drifted from the mythical landscapes to Berlin and mingled with various oriental influences. Vultures were scudding along the urban canyons while burning houses illuminated the skyline. Sand navigated in obscure spheres and discovered Tendrara. There is something magical and inexplicable in creation, and Sand absolutely manifest these mysterious phenomena. Storytellers, musicians, shamans, geniuses -- Sand were known, at the end of the '60s, as P.O.T. (Part of Time). Then Sand -- Ludwig Papenberg, his brother Ulrich Papenberg, and Johannes Vester -- developed a more avant-gardist, proto-industrial, visionary, experimental approach, becoming a truly unique entity in the history of music. Not dependent on a classic krautrock style, Sand is nevertheless part of this movement of German cosmic/psychedelic bands, in addition to being the originators of proto-industrial musics. "

These releases of farther material by Sand have all had their worth! I have bought them over the past few years through the mail direct from the company,....and now that the whole set is available here in the US, I can say that fans of Sand's Golem album should have no fear in collecting the whole's all wonderfully eccentric music and just makes Sand's legacy now 5 fold. Crazy invention from some lost crew of Germanic sound makers , lost in their own little soundworld. Well worth investigating!
