Eccie Bam Yas, E? began life as a more meditative piece than the rocket fuelled out rock the band are more associated with. Spliced and reformed by the band, taken from jams and improvised sets taken from the Rainbowhead recordings in Kyle of Lochalsh, a small village in the North of Scotland near the Isle of Skye. In this remote setting the band recorded a myriad of improvised pieces inspired by their rural surroundings and the material has been scattered across three albums.
A companion piece to Rainbowhead, this was originally released as a tour only CD in 2015, then as an exclusive download only version with Jam jar, by Monorail in 2016. It was finally released on Vinyl in May 2017 as the first release on the brand new Monorail Records label!
"Buckfast and psych rock. A delicious concoction if ever I did taste one. If the Cosmic Dead have been putting back buckie then I can completely understand how they’ve managed to be both as prolific and ridiculous as they have over the past few, though I also want to accuse them of lying since two weeks ago I reviewed one by them called ‘Psych is Dead’. For what? This? They celebrate their genre’s Easter-esque revival with more improvisation that hints at the noisier, dronier avenues currently exciting them." - NORMAN RECORDS
