Damin Eih, A.l.k & Brother Clark - "Never Mind"
Demelot Records - 1973
Super rare Acid Rock/Folk album from the Minneapolis area in 1973. Amazing production and tripped guitar effects. Mesmerizing song craft that's very lysergic in a Syd Barrett sort of way.
"One of those elaborate Midwestern headtrips that will send you into aural space you didn't even know exitsted, like CA Quintet of side 1 of Yezda Urfa. The longer suites are particularly impressive, while the shorter tunes less so. A unique mix of multi-layered acoustic guitars, treated vocals and extensive use of cymbals creates a piercing yet enjoyable high frequency soundscape that demands your attention, while soom moog and fuzz bass round out the bottom. Someone spent a lot of money on this one and I would deem it largely successful, with parts that are truly spellbinding, even though the 'message' remains obscure. Pretentious and rather Euro-proggish in its sensibility, yet playful and exotic enough to appeal to more adventerous psych fans. The bands ridiculously unwieldy moniker and the lack of a high profile reissue keeps this one buried.' - Acid Archives"
