Excavation is the name of a EP released by Aqua Nebula Oscillator. This EP contains four tracks of raw and dark Psychedelic Garage Rock. The songs Girl and Lost In Space already appeared on the album Under The Moon. But the versions on this EP are some different. They're more raw.
The tracks Echos and Bordel are as far I know previously unreleased. Excavation is for sure a recommendable EP for people who appreciate Aqua Nebula Oscillator. If you want to buy this EP, you have to hurry. There are only 500 copies. Enjoy!

Aqua Nebula Oscillator are a psychedelic acid punk group from the womb of Paris, France. Below the city, in the skulled caves of David Sphaer'Os (guitars, sitar, organ, synth, vocals and leader/Guru of Aqua Nebula Oscillator), dripping with trip visuals and artifacts from the other side, the band has made the catacombs of the 9th Arrondissment an immobile lair of time and space exploration. Since it's inception in 1999, as expected of any cult bearing a seeming philosophy of of turn on, tune in, fuck off, Aqua Nebula has cast a rotation of numerous talented black clad freak-out musicians, including multi-talented drummer/musician/filmmaker Juan Trip, vocalist synth and electronic machinist Shazzula, and prolific drummer Antoine Hadijoannou to name a few. Each versed in a repertoire of 60s psych garage, and early 70s space rock, ANO's music is an entrancing journey within that time frame, but set to a destination millions of years from now, or perhaps millions before. Hyper-fuzzed ragas, ear-piercing synth and wah-wah oscillations, atop voodoo rhythms, with a ferocity to blow up any garage band one might detect as influence or sacred, Aqua Nebula Oscillator exists today as the most mind melting psychedelic rock experience, and exists for us all as an auditory tab offering us waving liquid glimpses into the strange new worlds of light and darkness that exist in the center of the mind and beyond. Aqua Nebula Oscillator, "Excavation", is a 45rpm 12" released by Assommer. A glimpse of the bands heavy acid punk jams recorded in the caves in 2007, "Excavation" preserves the bands original raw recordings of Nuggets-worthy "Girl", and Wah-Fuzz jams like "Lost in Space". Limited to only 500 copies, housed in hand-screen printed black and gold poster sleeves, "Excavation" serves as a literal excavation of the band's long lost recordings, a classic fuzz record to be discovered for future generations of proper psych heads and freaks, but for now, a crushing rock and roll record sure to dig up and bring light to the lost primal nature within us.
