This is not a reissue. This is the first time this cult biker soundtrack has ever been heard. Another massive soundtrack release from Trunk following their Wicker Man and Kes albums. Psychomania is a cult movie -- a cult biker movie and there's probably no other British movie quite like it. It's a tale of Frog worshipping bikers who discover the secret of eternal life. They commit suicide and return as The living Dead, bikers who wreak havoc upon local supermarkets and motorways. Released in 1972 this film has slowly gathered cult following. Not only because it's so ridiculous but more importantly because of the music which has never been released properly until now. The recording also includes some excerpts from the movie, including some hilarious lines from Beryl Reid and Nicky Henson. All in all, this is an intense listening experience. It is rocky, progressive and quite wild, but there is no doubt in my mind that the single biggest factor in creating such an individualistic identity is the wonderfully progressive rock score by John Cameron. A distant cousin perhaps to Ron Grainers exceptional work on The Omega Man (1971), there is a darkly poetic undercurrent to the electric guitar, keyboard, bass and drums based music that is very difficult to pin down. It just has that special something. Whats easy to identify is the uniqueness of it all, very much a time capsule of those years spanning the transition from the sixties to the seventies. The evil kids will love it. Afterall. they've been waiting thirty years to get their hands on it. A very big round of applause to Trunk Records for tracking this almost forgotten gem down and making it available.
