Ever since I first got this tape I always pictured in my mind that hilarious comic strip in Audion magazine. Of course AMA II were not Auto-Kranial, they were not "Kraut-rock legends" but an obscure new incarnation of the band formerly known as AMA (from Yorkshire, featuring two members of Rancid Poultry).
Now AMA II with a new member: one Alan Dawson, and with a new concept: all basses (no lead guitar) they unleashed what was their craziest and heaviest release ever. But this was no normal heavy rock, but pure self-indulgent excessive jamming, which is no bad thing - and is almost certainly the reason for the original cover art and questionable track titles! Fans of old Guru Guru, Spacebox, Faust and Nekropolis take note. Turn the volume up and let rip!
