Vespero- Careful with that Axe, Eugene 7” (Crustacean 42)

The Russian psychedelic-progressive rock band returns with two Pink Floyd cover songs. You would like that because this is a 7” that the band would not be able to do justice to these tracks but they actually play at 33 rpm and run over 7 mins each, which is required if you are to do them justice. The version of Careful with that axe is quite smooth and all the sinister nature of the original is gone as this is focused on the floating space of the keyboards. They make it a more beautiful journey. One of the Days from the Meddle album is on the B-side and they also strip away the sinister, dark edge and create a super cool new version with totally spaced out electronics and wild experimentation. This was awesome…
