Review ov : Nommo Ogo - Across Time And Space - cd / Space Cross 12"

Imbibe ov thee waters ov thee celestial divinities..

Nommo Ogo have been purveyors ov their own forms ov unique kvlt elektronik sonorism since 96 when they formed from amongst other projekts active in thee mid-90's Alaskan psychedlic noise underground.. Their projekt name is a reference to thee Dogon mythology where the Nommo are ancestral spirits (sometimes referred to as deities) worshipped by the tribe from the central plateau region of Mali. The Nommos are usually described as amphibious, hermaphroditic, fish-like creatures. It is believed the Nommos descended from the sky in a vessel accompanied by fire and thunder. After arriving, the Nommos created a reservoir of water and subsequently dove into the water..

Nommo Ogo are now primarily an Oakland based projekt who are also behind thee amazing Katabatik sound-system and recording label [who have released recordings from astonishing artists such as: Sacrificial Totem, Poison Ring, Psimurgh, R.M.S., A:S:, Kanopic Descent, Dimentia, Susperium, Psychotigen, Lacedon, T.O.P.A.A.P.O.B.W.A.I.I., Nezzy Idy, Pucca Pangenitor, I.N.R.I., Amorphous Ossiferrous, and numerous others from amongst thee genres ov wierdcore / death-trance / abandoned house / funeral lounge / satanik disko / astral dub / zombient / transyuggothian throat singing / u.b.m. (uncontrollable body movement) / queasy listening / tentacle funk / slime wave / battle ambient / drone and beat / kosmicheterrorismus..

Nommo Ogo have had numerous self-released titles on cassette,cd, and cdr as well as having the releases H.A.A.R.P. Musick - CD, Meat and Red Triangles / The Blood Red Game - 12", and The Sea Finally Surfaces - CD on thee Isolate label which was run by the late Wai Cheng [Optic].

Across Time And Space - cd & Space Cross - 12" were both released on thee Pleasanton , CA based Record Label Records who have also released recordings from Scorn and Contagious Orgasm amongst others..

Thee sounds ov these two most recent releases delve deeply into thee suprasensorial; with sounds which are at times ethereal trances melding into glitched eruptions ov tripped-out sequencing and filtering which evoke thee transcendant sensations ov thee cosmic voyaging ov thee galaxies or ov thee deep psychonautic space within.. At times there are string progressions which evoke some sort ov psychedelic-blues or space-metal reminiscent ov both Hawkwind & Coil fused via some sort ov strange alchemical processes..

Thee packaging for A.T.A.S. unfolds into a unique space cross design featuring artwork by Kelly Porter!!

Have been listening to the Across Time And Space - cd & thee Space Cross 12" [which contains variations ov tracks present on thee cd] both an extreme ammount since picking them up from the group after witnessing thee ecstatic dancefloor revelry they induced at thee 13th annual Autonomous Mutant Festival this last summer, and wished to take thee time to praise what for me were a couple ov thee best releases ov this last year!!
Do not miss these great releases!!

shall be posting here soon some ov thee mid-90's Alaskan elektronikx submitted to this blog by Djynnx ov Nommo Ogo!!
