The Diaphanoids - Astral Weekend

Hello Earthlings. From the netherland of the kosmos, here come The Diaphanoids. With a bizarre and mind-boggling musical background (junk rock,alternative library music for tv, songwriting for Luciano Pavarotti, Blackbox and many techno-house releases during the nineties, orchestral composers, arrangers, producers), yours truly psychonauts will deliver their own unique blend of lunar funkadelia + spaced-out disco+ astro rock+ galactic soul + confuzed boogie + congotronics + krautgrooves + seventies' soundtracks, with titles like excerpts from trashy XYZ series psi/sci-fi movies.

Their debut album "Astral Weekends" is released on Chicken Lips' Stevie Kotey's label Bear Entertainment. So turn your dream machine on, get off your psychic asses and start walking on the laser's edge... Up close you can smell real good : analog bubblesounds, tone floaters, motorik-mekanik grooves, uncontrolled floods of de-tuned vintage synthesizers (moog modular-yamaha cs 80-arp 2600-arp sequencer-roland synths-arp omni 2-eminent-ems aks-oberheim-mellotron-jx 3p-jx 8p-juno, vcs 3 synthesizer, prepared piano, modified revox a77 tape recorder...), banshee-like Frippertronics guitars, phosphorent drums + glaxo bass, spectral she-muses... All aboard the Space Train captained by tin pac-men from toy planets. 1972-1977-1978-1979-1980/// Berlin-Munich-London-Paris-New York...we've seen the best minds of those generations crisped and motherfunked by the active oxidants of brainium zythernitrate.


The Diaphanoids (visible division) are: Andrea Bellentani and Simon Maccari. No aliens nor humans have been harmed during these recordings. We're so silver...what about you?
