**Edition of 170 copies with catalogue insert. Excellent album of
distorted and submerged Kosmische experimentation highly recommended if
you're into Conrad Schnitzler, Emeralds etc.** Inner visions of martian
sci-fi soundscapes conducted by the protagonist behind Dissolving
Records. Paying tribute to Philip K. Dick and Conrad Schnitzler, 'Jesus
On Mars' envelopes us in a black hole of analogue swirls, tripping into a
vast alternate world of "...temporal concatenations and expansions;
inner-spatial vistas and ferric visions of arcane pulp planetscapes." As
history, literature and culture repeatedly tell us - from ancient
Greece to modern Hollywood and NASA - Mars is not a friendly place and
this mood of fearful trepidation is central to 'Jesus On Mars' as we're
engaged by mighty dust clouds of cosmic distortion and harmonic
hallucinations bound to leave a lasting impression after reentry to
terra firma. We're sure Schnitzler would approve of this album.

Jesus on Mars - Jesus on Mars (Henge 006)
... jerry-rigged nests of wires and plugs wrapped in multicoloured sleeves, potent transcendental devices awaiting the engagement of an active imagination, spreading out below a bird’s-eye viewer, clouds of dust, petrified ripples, gleams of water, crumbling cities, strange figures… the Martian deserts of the Mind.
