    From Cardinal Fuzz -
    "Cardinal Fuzz are proud to present a re-pressing of the self titled double album from Glasgow’s The Cosmic Dead. Tuned into the same interstellar pulse as Hawkwind, TAB – era Monster Magnet and Ash Ra Tempel, The Cosmic Dead bring four sides of intense, propulsive kraut/psych bliss. A full 80 minutes of motorik drive and galactic psych/kraut. The final track, Father Sky, Mother Earth stretches itself over two sides of vinyl as it ascends to higher planes. Available on a blue/orange swirl vinyl - double album - gatefold sleeve – Repressing of 500"

    Includes unlimited streaming of The Cosmic Dead via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

"This album is a total revelation of sonic imagery. Across eighty minutes the listener is taken on an astronomic road trip that never once wavers in imagination or immensity." - Shindig! (Happening!)

"It's Can locked in an eternal psychedelic battle with the cosmos itself, a feast of tripped-out riffage, swelling, swirling bass and juddering sonic explorations that come to a hypnogogic climax with the 40 minute sonic quicksand of Father Sky, Mother Earth." - Rock-A-Rolla

"Spacial exploration rather than the psychiatric breakdown. cologne rather than altamont. There’s no hipster arched eyebrow here, no faux-intellectual exploration of unfashionable musical tropes. this is just one monstrous monged jam after another monstrous monged jam." - Cows Are Just Food
