Bardo Pond – Big Laughing Jym LP (RSD 2019)


Purple vinyl edition. First time on vinyl since initial press in 1995. ‘Big Laughing Jym’ follows 1994’s ‘Bufo Alvarius’ and between 1996’s ‘Amanita’, inducing tenebral states with their sludgy yet beguiling psychedelic rock.

On “Dispersion” and “Clearhead” whirlpools of bass, feedback-clogged flute, and John and Michael Gibbons’ high-dosage, irradiated guitars, are definitive Pond.” (AllMusic).

The record also includes ‘Hummingbird Mountain II (A Return Trip’) and ‘Dragonfly’.

“Playing fuzzed out stuff of stoner dreams since the mid ‘90s.” Pitchfork

“Today they stand as an elder statesman at the epicentre of an international underground of psychedelic extremists” Sunday Times
