    Sold Out



Russia's progressive rockers get their own 7" of vinyl to themselves and use it to reinterpret two of Pink Floyd's classic tracks:

Careful With That Axe, Eugene
One Of These Days

Yes, there's a certain 'chopping' theme to this single - i don't know why, it seemed a good idea at the time. And maybe it was, 'cos Vespero do a grand job of both tracks - giving them a more modern feel but still paying appropriate respect to the originals. I'm sure whoever invented the 7" single had nothing like this in mind at the time for the format - but the guys squeeze everything they can into the grooves and it makes for epic listening.
FdM afficionados will know Vespero from their Faust cover on last year's Annual and from 'strange fish two' - and they won't be disappointed with their first all-vespero release on FdM.

"....The Russian psychedelic-progressive rock band returns with two Pink Floyd cover songs. You would like that because this is a 7” that the band would not be able to do justice to these tracks but they actually play at 33 rpm and run over 7 mins each, which is required if you are to do them justice. The version of Careful with that axe is quite smooth and all the sinister nature of the original is gone as this is focused on the floating space of the keyboards. They make it a more beautiful journey. One of the Days from the Meddle album is on the B-side and they also strip away the sinister, dark edge and create a super cool new version with totally spaced out electronics and wild experimentation. This was awesome…"
