Many great musicians have come from outer space; not least Sun Ra and most of George Clinton’s Funkadelic.
We’ve just stumbled across Henge, who bring an extra-terrestial perspective to music. Not only does their recent album carry that intergalactic groove common to Sun Ra and George Clinton, they have a similarly enlightened attitude to war, the need for love and tolerance and other matters of world-wide importance. Seems like Space really IS The Place as they reach deep into the groove for their epic “Demiliterise”.
Henge specialise in Cosmic Dross – a musical form known in other parts of the universe that has, until now, never been heard on Earth. Although you may know it as nicely loose groove music with some quality chanting that will make for a dance-tacular evening among crazily-dressed aliens.
