time to space

The Time and Space Machine is one half of Beyond The Wizards Sleeve. Richard Norris' debut album as the 'Machine' is called 'Volume 1', it's a compilation of Krautrock tricks, far flung Psychedelic wiggy bits, foot stomping breaks and mashed up madness. It's a trip for sure; where simultaneous access to times and spaces occur at once, where inverted ironies, antique found sounds, cut ups and layered grooves (even groovyness) enjoy multiple manipulations. As it is a limited edition run on 5d Recordings, I have a feeling this will become as collectable as many of the original tunes Norris reworks on here (Phonica still have a few copies for sale). I particularly like the second half of the album and the languid hippy trail blazer 'Buffalo Roam' which ends the second side, though it's not nearly long enough.
