Quad, England

Quad - 2. 1997 Acme Prescription Drug

One of a handful of entries here that I first heard courtesy of my old radio and Gnosis colleague Craig.

Quad 2 starts with an Indian stringed instrument that sets the tone (or drone) while tribal drums and acid guitar slowly float the listener away. Lots of mellotron and acoustic guitar. One of the most blissfully tranced out Krautrock albums since Dom's "Edge of Time".

Their debut LP album has been reissued, but it remains to be seen if any of the limited Drug series will ever see the light of day on CD.

March 2011 update: I bought an original on ebay this month. The cover shot that is going around and what is posted on RYM is incorrect. I've left that one here, and included the actual item I purchased.

Priority: 1
