Not a particularly prolific outfit, this is the Ibliss’ sole album and a fine slice of Krautrock with strong jazz inflections that gives the sound a fusion flavour. As such, you shouldn’t be surprised by Supernova’s long, jam-oriented winding forays based around the focused, tribal, percussion, with guitar and saxophone providing grammatical support. Fans of both Xhol and Embryo will find much of interest here. In addition, Kraftwerk fans will be intrigued to hear that longterm associate Conny Plank produced this album. Basil Hammoudi, of pre-Kraftwerk outfit Organisation’s Tone Float LP, also appears. This gatefold release is limited to 500 copies and includes a pictorial insert providing information on the band.
