Ramases – Space Hymns

Mad Gregorian astral-rock from 1971

Trending Now

One glance at the grammatically challenged and logic-dodging sleevenotes will convince you that Mister Ram (Martin to his Earth Mum) was a couple of coins short of a hexagram. Sounding like a Norwegian Eurovision entry on “Oh Mister”, a druggy New Seekers on “And The Whole World”, and Reg Presley singing over a Unicorn-era Bolan backing on “Quaser One”, this is a genuine prog-oddity. It would be nice to report that he’s thrusting religious pamphlets at passers-by as we speak, but apparently he committed suicide in the 1990s. The future 10cc provide punchy production and some meaty beaty backing.
