Cybotron - Colossus (1978)


Cybotron was an Australian duo that formed a decade before the Detroit band of the same name, and they should have been the most influential band on the planet. They were making mature, beautiful electronic prog rock while Kraftwerk and King Crimson were still getting their shit together. The only problem is most of their music was completely unavailable until it was re-issued twenty years after Cybotron split up, and everyone acknowledged how mind-blowing this stuff would have been if they had had a decent label. Colossus is one of their best known and most accessible albums. If you like it, I have the rest of their stuff, but I won't know to share unless you leave a damn comment.

Get if you like: Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, Hawkwind
