Shark Move - Chede Chokra's Shark Move (Shadoks, 1970)...
(Epicly melodramatic and morosely weird fuzzed out psych, morose like the track at the end of the 80's tv series 'Monkey')
Another heavy title from Shadoks that restores an obscure 1970 psych monster from Indonesia. Shark Move have that classic slow sunrise sound of countless South American titans mixed with the kind of sunburst vocal style that floats the best of the UK freakbeat sides (Jason Crest et al), crunching fuzz, heavy keyboards and kaleidoscopic song stylings. This is ambitious, florid psych that should please anyone who digs the more dramatic UK sugarcube moments as much as the more enjoyably complex Euro prog shit. And if that ain't you, who the fuck is it? - Volcanic Tongue
