CHROME - Ghost Machine CD

CD released by Klanggalerie

Pess- kit: Chrome was founded in San Francisco in 1975. Their sound wasn't easy to label - being ahead of their time, Helios Creed and Damon Edge created music that featured heavy elements of feedback and distortion.They experimented in mixing synthesized noise with rock instrumentation, therefore they are now seen as part of the post punk movement (even when punk was still in full flow at that time). Their breakthrough came in 1977 with their second album Alien Soundtracks. The band largely abandoned conventional rock compositions, instead employing cut-up and collage techniques and heavily processed sound to create a kind of sci-fi punk style. The album was given 4 out of 5 stars in the UK music paper Sounds, and Chrome began gradually to gain a cult reputation in the UK and in Europe. In the 1980s Damon Edge released several rather electronic records under the Chrome name, but Helios Creed had by that time left the band. He pursued a solo career but picked up the name Chrome again after Damon Edge died in Paris. The album Ghost Machine came out in 2002 on the German Dossier label. It is an often overlooked gem in the band's discography and has been out of print for over a decade. Creed reinstalled all the Chrome trademark sounds mixing electronics with his distinct guitar sound, and unusal production and mixing methods. This new edition comes in a digipack and with remastered sound. Track list: 1. Requiem 2. The Wind 3. Roots 4. The Farm 5. Ghost Machine 6. Parameters 7. The Magic Bong 8. Santa Will I Die 9. Inner Space 10. Black Plastic Bag 11. Drown.

Helios Creed is a founding member of legendary US avantgarde space rock band Chrome. Chrome was founded in San Francisco in 1975. Their sound wasn't easy to label - being ahead of their time, Helios Creed and Damon Edge created music that featured heavy elements of feedback and distortion. They experimented in mixing synthesized noise with rock instrumentation, therefore they are now seen as part of the post punk movement (even when punk was still in full flow at that time). Their breakthrough came in 1977 with their second album Alien Soundtracks. The band largely abandoned conventional rock compositions, instead employing cut-up and collage techniques and heavily processed sound to create a kind of sci-fi punk style. Creed says he invented his trademark guitar sound trying to replicate the sound he heard in his head, while listening to Black Sabbath on LSD on headphones when he was a teenager. He is currently working both on his solo career, as well as the re-activated Chrome. On The Dark Side Of The Sun was originally released in 2003 on Staticwhitesound Records. For this re-issue, we have remastered the whole album and added some live bonus tracks. Full track list: 1. Space Sexy 2. The Summit 3. The Probe 4. Sacrament 5. Trailer Park Zombie 6. Lady Deville 7. Agoraphobia 8. Another Heartbreak 9. The Machine 10. The Eagle 11. Cruisin' The K 12. Evildevilmonster 13. On The Dark Side Of The Sun 14. Sea Of Glass 15. Master Blaster (Live) 16. Kurt Zombie (Live) 17. Monster Lust (Live). Released on Helios Creed's birthday November 3rd.
