Gurumaniax – Psy Valley Hill (2010)

Gurumaniax is a new cooperation of Ax Genrich and Mani Neumeier. Both were Guru Guru founding members in the late 1960s. Genrich left in 1974 to take other steps and, when nobody ever expected something like a reunion anymore, after 30 years they came together again in 2004 to form the new improv trio Psychedelic Monsterjam featuring Dave Schmidt aka Sula Bassana – with the result of exciting gigs and two live albums. Probably it was the death of the other early Guru Guru member Uli Trepte last year which involuntarily forced this new collaboration. And yes, indeed one album track is dedicated to him. Bassist Guy Segers, founding member of Univers Zero, is aboard this time in order to produce some new studio output.
They came together due to some successful jamming with Makoto Kawabata (Acid Mothers Temple) and David Allen (Gong) at the Zappanale Festival.in Germany one year before. ‘Psy Valley Hill’ consists of excellent space jams, in some way reaching for the old spirit with a reasonable krautrock/avantgarde touch.
