Seompi - Guns In The Skies (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 18-CICD-1971
“While releasing only three singles in the early 1970's, Seompi's mystique has continued to grow through the ensuing decades. Three posthumous releases issued in the late 1990's only added to Seompi's aura—even though two were off speed and the third has been long out of print. This was the status quo for the past couple of decades until now with the release of "Guns In The Skies". Starting off with the hard rocker "AWOL" and then spacing out with the fourteen minute unreleased opus titled "Synergy Squares", Seompi takes you on a trip back to 1971 when Austin, Texas was the stomping ground for their brand of Psychedelic Space Rock. Along the way a young Stevie Ray Vaughn must have seen Seompi perform 'Voodoo Child' because Seompi's version is the Space Rock prototype against which all others measure. "Guns In The Skies" proves that Seompi ranks up there with all the other legendary Texas heavies such as The 13th Floor Elevators, The Zakary Thaks, ZZ Top, and Johnny Winter. MADE LOUD TO BE PLAYED LOUD.”

"SEOMPI, or Self Expression On Musically Potential Instruments, were an American progressive rock band, formed in Austin, Texas. While diverse in style, heavy beats and distorted guitars and a dark atmosphere were trademark elements of SEOMPI's music. Several of their tracks are heavy and doom-ladden and contain other elements later to be associated with the metal subgenre of doom metal.”—Metal Music Archives
