- helios creed: galactic octopi
(2011, cd, usa, transaparency)
Attentive readers might have noticed that the latest Dwalmacat radio show featured a track by Chrome, 'Pygmies In Zee Park'. When Chrome broke up in the early eighties, their guitar player, Helios Creed, started a solo career.
Both Chrome and Helios Creed do have a cult following, but it will not only be these fans that will like this album. On "Galactic Octopi", Helios Creed's distorted guitar takes a leading role. Mixed with a heavy drum beat and Residents-like narration, it will indeed take you to another planet.
Industrial Space Rock.
Out on Transparency.
Available on CD and on vinyl.
The below clips offer 'Pygmies In Zee Park' by Chrome from 1978 (!!) and 'Star Streaker' from Helios Creed's "Galactic Octopi' (love that title). Check them out !!
