Dragon Tears- 2000 Micrograms from Home
(Bad Afro Records AFROCD032)
From Aural Innovations #36 (May 2007)
Dragon Tears is not really a band but the name of a jam session when the old
On Trial/Spids Nøgenhat guys meet up with the Baby Woodrose guys and
do some drugs and make some killer psychedelic rock!!!!!!!!!!!! The CD begins
with Microdot, a totally spaced out track with really cool vocals by Lorenzo.
The sound is really amazing with backwards guitars, acoustic guitars and plenty
of delay!!! Borderline features this really raw drum beat box sound and a very
psychedelic guitar and organ taking you back to 1967! Super cool stuff. Hobbitten’s
Drøm is a short, dreamy piece with organ, spaced out guitar and a total
acid vibe… Doublestains, could easily be a Baby Woodrose song if you gave
the band some acid! The Doors of Perception is a totally Krautrock meets 13th
Floor Elevators track, stretching out for 14 minutes and very repetitive and
with loads of stuff hiding in the soundscape… Don’t get too stoned….
Heliodrone is a strange 2 minute piece to help you put your mind back together
after The Doors of Perception… Great, no, amazing world class psych classic.
