Cord Of Life – "Imaginary Journeys To sunset" (Mars 5) and "Winterland" (Mars 7) 1985/1986


Plenty of meditative electronic navel gazing of the Vangelis variety rather than Kraftwerk-ism’s on these two cassette releases from the mid-eighties. Even Kraftwerk were shite by then, but then again so was everything else.
I can imagine these chaps,David and Andy, playing two keyboards each at the same time. Rather like Viv Savage of Spinal Tap during ‘Big Bottom’…….”Hey,I got two hands here!”
Plenty of space references in the song titles, and lots of sustained chords, amongst the plinky plunk kosmische style melodies. Put your hands on the keyboards and move your fingers about and you pretty much end up with stuff like this.Tangerine Dream this is not. But if you like yer average bedroom Klaus Schulze wannabee’s, then this is for you.
