Formed in 2010, The Cosmic Dead are a quartet from Glasgow, Scotland who share their music through good
vibes and better vibrations. Known for their improvised, chaos-strewn, Buckfast-smashed-against-the-wall take
on space music, they have roamed from Roadburn to Las Vegas, Dundee to Bangalore. Each album is a
document of the time and space the group find themselves in, a tangible artefact hewn from a psychedelic
continuum orchestrated by The Cosmic Dead.
Eccie Bam Yas, E? began life as a more meditative piece than the rocket-fuelled out-rock the band are more
associated with. Spliced and reformed by the band, taken from jams and improvised sets taken from the
Rainbowhead recordings in Kyle of Lochalsh, a small village in the North of Scotland near the Isle of Skye. In this
remote setting the band recorded a myriad of improvised pieces inspired by their rural surroundings and the
material has been scattered across three albums; 'Easterfaust'(2014), 'Rainbowhead'(2016) and 'Eccie Bam, Yas
E?'(2017).
Beginning with an eldritch drift that roams the stereo field, phasing in an out from another realm, Smash The
Sash melts into an electronic rock piece powered by keyboardist Lewis Cook’s analog synth sequence and
drummer Julian Dicken’s pummelling drum work. The cumulative effect reminds the listener of early Krautrock
experiments, like first line-up Tangerine Dream playing Tanzmusik with early, rock-band Kraftwerk while epic
show-stealer Fleein’ From The Polis brings the stringed instruments centre stage, Bassist Omar Aborida duets
with James MacKay’s warped guitar playing to create weaves of sound across a moody rhythm section. Side B
opens with Buckfast Aye, a brooding exploration with stereo-panned guitars a-flutter before the band take the
listener into a slow-paced burner that brings the group’s psychedelic craftsmanship into play. The set ends with a
full on trip. Lynx Africa builds the group’s sound into a space-rock jam that reminds the listener of classic mid-70s
Hawkwind or the more long-form music White Hills built their early career on. What’s without question on Eccie
Bam Yas, E? is that the group are telepathic in their playing and psychopathic in their purpose.
Monorail Music of Glasgow are proud to announce a new imprint with the intention of documenting our global
community and the many forms it takes.
