Cybotron, Australia *** REISSUED ***



Steven Maxwell Von Braund - Monster Planet. 1975 Clear Light of Jupiter. *** Reissued by Aztec in 2014 ***
Cybotron - s/t. 1976 Clear Light of Jupiter. *** Reissued by Dual Planet Jan 2015 ***

From what I understand, Maxwell lived in Germany and became fascinated with the German Kosmische movement. Upon arriving in Australia, he began a similar type of scene and started Cybotron. Both albums have a strong penchant for the mid 70's Tangerine Dream style whereas "Monster Planet" also recalls the Cosmic Jokers "Planeten Sit In" album. The Von Braund album even uses the same day-glo blue and yellow colors of the Cosmic Courier clan. All good stuff.

Aztec has already done "Implosion" (and Inak did "Colossus" years ago), so I suspect these two will come along eventually.
