Audion states that Brainticket's first Cottonwoodhill or on German CD as Brainticket" is the most psychedelic album ever released. Well, maybe, but this one drives me up a tree! The titled track sure is psychedelic and has this annoying and insistent theme that is a backdrop for swirly psychedelic effects and a woman's highly insistent voice that talks about anything from cosmic cliches to "Oh yes, and sex, I like sex!..." If I were to trip on this, I may end up jumping off of a cliff.... Their second Psychonaut is far more pleasant and an ethnic type of early German rock!
Yet another from the German space scene. I've heard half of Psychonaut the recommended starter album. Ethereal flute, other percussive instruments, and sitar help to set the mood for a cosmic journey, that's dashed with splashes of Hammond organ and nice vocals that are almost folk-like in quality. Great stuff.
Led by Swiss keyboardist Joel Vandroogenbroeck, Brainticket immediately established themselves as the ultimate freak-out band with their first album, Cottonwood Hill. Notorious for the 27-minute "Brainticket Pts. 1 and 2," a lysergic mix of weird sound effects, tape loops, paranoid female vocals, and electronic improvisation, all set to an insistent theme played on Hammond organ. One of the strangest and MOST drug-influenced things you'll ever hope to hear. Psychonaut tones things down a good deal, not unlike middle-period Amon Düül II, but lighter and more psych orientated. Sitars and flutes are used quite a bit. -- Mike Ohman
