Finally reissued, the debut album by this psychedelic band mixing ethnic and African influences with the colors of the desert. “Equally stirring and equally necessary for mental health are those spectacular cave recordings contained within the grooved wares of Al Doum & the Faryds’ self-titled debut LP. Released on the Italian El Guscio Records (elguscio.it), this fucking righteously Out There declaration comes on like a lobotomized Xhol Caravan meets Shiva’s Tongue meets one of those low low-grade reggae recording bands like Ras Michael & the Sons of Negus, all jamming-ah on the 100° Fahrenheit obsidian-strewn plains of Southern Sardinia. Yes, it’s hot. Throughout these proceedings, therefore, mucho Arabian percussion is shaken and kicked, much soul clapping is embarked upon, and several times repeated Middle Eastern flute’n’sax themes of extreme unmemorability perk up then dwindle with almightily stoned purposelessness. All quite exquisite. And although arid M. Karoli occasionally flames up to provide a vast horizon of cosmic beauty, the Faryds’ main themes always remain so VU-crunchy and agricultural down at their ‘What bottom end?’ that even the off-kilter lipping of their sub-sub-Madness/Faust-style sax warbler appears sumptuous by disc’s end. A fuck of a journey, kiddies, you gots to hear these cosmic jokers on repeat in order best to witness the dissolving of your immediate world.” (Julian Cope)
