COSMIC DREAMS AT PLAY:
Brain signed a considerable number of jazz and fusion influenced 'progressive' rock bands in the early seventies. Among these were Release Music Orchestra, Cornucopia, Kollektiv, Creative Rock, Emergency and Thirsty Moon, a large band from Bremen. Their debut album appeared in 1972, produced by Jochen Petersen (of lkarus and Randy Pie fame) at Studio Maschen. Five tracks ranging from the 21 minute suite "Yellow Sunshine" to the short songs "Love Me" and "Rooms Behind Your Mind". Their music was comparable to the groups listed earlier - an inventive and mostly instrumental jazz-rock fusion, where the solo improvisations were given free reign. Among Thirsty Moon's characteristics were massive use of percussion (congas) and electric piano in dynamic arrangements, ranging from soft, mellow atmospheres to psychedelic outbursts with reversed tapes and phasing effects. The album is so varied that it's hardly describable!
Hans-Werner Ranwig quit before You'll Never Come Back (1973), and was replaced by Siegfried Pisalla. This album was just as varied as their first. One side was completely instrumental. Blitz (1975) broke away from the early style with a more easy-going and up-beat instrumental rock. The group broke up after the disappointing Real Good Time (1976), presumably they too were dissatisfied with the album.
The first two Thirsty Moon albums are recommended, the next two are quite good.
