MOOCH "Mrs Silbury's Delicious Mushroom Flavoured Biscuits" (EYE 012)

For 22 years MOOCH are on the forefront of british psychedelic space rock. Powered by the creativity of their main member Steve Palmer, they released several albums of ambient, electronic, progressive, psychedelic and free festival spacerock mindblowing headtrips. Cosmic Eye Records is proud to release their 25th and very first vinyl album "Mrs Silbury's Delicious Mushroom Flavoured Biscuits"; a return to space rock. 

Featuring collaborations from Garry Moonboot Masters (Magic Mushroom Band, Astralasia, Moonboot Oz), Cyndee Lee Rule (legendary space violin), Alex Pym (Dream Machine, Damidge), Bridget Wishart (Hawkwind, Demented Stoats, Hippy Slags, Spirits Burning), Damien Redmond (longtime Mooch member) and Jez Creek (Mooch, Modulator, Astrogator, Cerberus, Quadra) the new album is a continuation of the Silbury family saga that started with the monumental double CDr " Dr Silbury's Liquid Brainstem Band". Here MOOCH offer the additional means of being transported into another realm; with seven progressive space rock excursions that are the perfect vehicle for Steve Palmer's hypnotizing and trippy swirls of sounds. This album is in fact more like a musical journey than a collection of tracks, taking the listener on a magic carpet ride, fuelled by the most intense interstellar psychedelic energy. So far-out!

Does anyone remember the Free Festival years? Heading off for Stonehenge on the Peace Convoy? Club Dog or Alice in Wonderland? Reading Freakbeat, Ptolemaic Terrascope or Crohinga Well? Buying your cassettes & vinyls from the Freak Emporium or at the back of bands' vans? If you want to relive the experience, jump on the MOOCH's mothership, serve yourselves some of Mrs Silbury's delicious mushroom flavoured biscuits, close your eyes and be prepared for the take-off. The trip is about to begin!

ATOMIC SIMAO "Nōdo" (EYE 011)



ATOMIC SIMAO are Ukraine's best kept secret. A mindblowing mixture of trippy psychedelic groove and space rock textures. The child of the great underground acid jam wave of the 60's, infused by a big inspiration from the 90's electronic space music. By pulling elements from several genres and layering them flawlessly, the band creates pretty solid tripped out tracks. Their music memorizes with intensity and diversity.

In their debut album "Nōdo", they create mind-enhancing psychedelic soundscapes in an organized chaos of acid-jazz, psych rock, and space rock. Listening to their music is like setting off on a long unexpected journey where multiple story lines unfold simultaneously and you are caught in the middle, observing and trying to figure out the places this trip will take you and how it will conclude. These guys dig deep in their sonic exploration, creating lengthy multilayered instrumental compositions with organic flow and an excellent deal of improvisations. It's the sound of a progressive and challenging hybrid of psychedelia and space rock; wild and untamed but at the same time harmonious and very enjoyable.

"Nōdo" sounds like emerging from ancient times to be experienced again by the enlightened people of the day. Turn it up and enjoy ATOMIC SIMAO’s sound and all its trippiness!

ØRESUND SPACE COLLECTIVE "It’s All About Delay" (EYE 013 / SER 021 / SPR 018)


ØRESUND SPACE COLLECTIVE is The trademark for instrumental extended improvised grooving cosmic spacerock music in Europe. Consisting of prolific musicians coming from USA, Denmark and Sweden back in 2006, they went into the Black Tornado Studios in Copenhagen and locked themselves for a 2 day jamming marathon. More than 5 hours of material was recorded within these two days -absolutely live- and the best of that material saw a double CD release, housed in a DVD case, on Sweden's Transubstans Records (Oct. 2006). One of their most wonderful albums and an ultra tripped-out spacerock marathon in the best Ozric Tentacles, Hawkwind, Gong and Amon Duul II tradition. 

Eight years later, the acid heads of Sound Effect Records, Cosmic Eye and O.S.C. proper label Spacerock Productions decided to co-reissue this long out of print masterpiece on vinyl. The music was mastered specifically for this vinyl release from the original 24 bit mixes by Johan Dahlstrom, who has mastered all previous O.S.C. records. Some of the songs have been edited in an alternative way. One track is extended by 7 minutes ("Tony Blair Witch Crocket Project") plus for "In Her Majesty's Secret Saucer" a new mix was made by Magnus Hannibal (of Mantric Muse fame) who did the original mix of the record. The artwork of the DVD case has now been reworked into a fantastic 4 LP box set with a large poster by the amazing artist, Ed Unitsky.

 Limited edition of 525 Boxes total, that include:
  • 4 LPs; each LP in it’s own cover.
  • Big poster (70 x 100 cm)

REVERSED NATURE "Into the Limbo" (EYE 010)


REVERSED NATURE are a psychedelic jam rock band from Greece. Cosmic Eye presents their debut LP, characterized by a constant lazy flow of sounds, rhythms and voices. Never knowing where it will end, the band travel through long excursions falling somewhere between the drifty murk of space rock, krauty influenced jamming and the psychedelic aspect of some tribal post punk.

Opener "Into the Limbo" sets the mood perfectly, with it's tranced out, almost spacey sounding mesmer; that druggy, drowsy vibe surfacing throughout the rest of the track, sometimes morphing into a grim kosmische sound, other times blossoming into near Savage Republic's tribal post punk, but always shadowy and grey, and darkly dreamlike. Female vocals scream and wail in a P.I.L. ethno mood, then tenderly echo and whisper hauntingly meditative gloom-ragas, over a bed of roiling dark drones, and softly churning guitar reverb. Woozy melodies, bleed and blur into softly undulating sonic tapestries, sometimes tethered to a spare, skeletal rhythm, but often left to float weightless in a sprawl of drowsy shimmer. As the band builds forth, the sound eventually builds to a heavier psych-kraut drift, and then swifts into some rhythmic jam rock, all deep bass drones, pounding drumming, thick murky riffage, eventually launching into EARTH's doomy introspective acid freak-out groove.

Musically, what REVERSED NATURE really display on this album is a contemporary woozy and warped psychedelic jam rock. It's a beautiful work that continually rewards -the more we listen. The perfect soundtrack to a moonlit desert beneath a field of stars.

KIKAGAKU MOYO repress

Due to popular demand, we just repressed of one of our instant sold-outs: KIKAGAKU MOYO's debut release. If you wonder how a geometrical pattern sounds, imagine an effortless floating sonic carpet, combining classic 60s folk and psych elements (especially in their more quiet parts where the sitar blends with flowing distorted guitars and audio effects), with a somewhat more heavy progressive feel in the tradition of the early 70s bands which flourished in their homeland (Flower Travelling Band and Love, Live, Life + One in particular). A sound that hovers lazily over the past and expands itself in order to reach today in a precise and energetic way. So timeless!


The new pressing is limited to 500 copies total and comes in three different releases:

a. Special colour edition (100 copies): 22 € Black with splattered white vinyl + silk-screened cover

b. Special black edition (200 copies): 19 € Black vinyl + silk-screened cover

c. Regular colour edirion (200 copies): 19 € Black with splattered white vinyl + normal single cover


Release Date: 27 May 2014
