Psychick Warriors ov Gaia 1989 EP

Industrial occult experimentalists attend an acid house rave in the late 80s..
“Probably silly but it only then occurred to us that the dance could be a powerful tool too, a way to communicate on a physical level, a way to celebrate life. A niche had opened and this was something we had to explore…”
– With that they joined a fairly large group of industrial or post punk bands that discovered the power of dance music in this period. The results of this revelation here are an oozing sweating mass of techno, originally released as a cassette. It has been lovingly restored and released on vinyl for the first time by Sacred Summits, ready to be unleashed on a dance floor..
