Inspired by the Canterbury Scene Smell Of Incense offer long & freely interpreted versions of two early Gong songs. Based on a trancy floating repetitive drum/bass carpet --- guitar, keyboards and violine create an open atmosphere. With collected energies they expand into progressive rock space before galumphing into the country folk tinged cosmic sector of "Magick Brother". Ethereal Counterbalance is the contemporary UK guitar-psych group featuring Rod Goodway. Ethereal Counterbalance's multi-layered guitar sound produces hallucinogenic effects. "I swear I heard a guitar solo I was never able to detect again". Psychedelia & space rock ("Flight 49") for your third ear.
