I've heard that his new stuff shows promise.

It's well-known that I hold this guy largely responsible for the lack of true psychedelia in psytrance at the moment, so I wait to see if I'll be pleasantly surprised.

...promoting his unique sound and style? what the fuck are you talking about hommegga records?
here is a more accurate scenario:
Stars in their Eyes, 8.00 pm, Sat night:
Matthew Kelly: well Astrix, you're a welder from Birmingham but who are you going to be tonight?
Astrix: well Matthew tonight I'm going to be Alien Project, who are shit but bloody successful, and I have no imagination

Ha Ha Ha!!! You've hit the nail on the head! I await with curiosity to see if he has used his imagination this time and not just churned out a load of tunes that ALL SOUND THE SAME!! [/quote]

Yeah, it's true Astrix and Alien project used to work together - so unsurprisingly share some of the same sounds.

Thing is all my old Alien project CDs have a few inches of dust on them now, but the (Astrix) Eye-to-eye CD still gets a good thrashing after all this time.

Musically I don't think Astrix and Alien Project are even close. And from listening to the single from this album I don't think we're gonna get a rehashed Alien Project sound at all.

Looking FWD to this release :Smile3: (End of the month is rumoured for the release date).

Any news on some live appearances?

what in tintern abbey are you talking about?
actually - technically - alien project ripped off astrix.

the 2 of them used to be alien project, then astrix went off and ari, well basically ari just kept all the presets and somehow managed a lucrative multiple-album deal on a large label, which involved him breaking a contract with a large israeli label, which involved lots of headaches and wranglings and looking back, one must surely question whether it was all worth it

allegedly.

that cover shot? :ph34r:
Have you noticed that as soon as artists start putting their pictures on the cover then things go downhill...

Course I'm looking forward to it :Grin: , naturally.

Oh, I thought it was some random dead dude wrapped in plastic a la 'Twin Peaks' stylee...

Thought it was some reference to the 'Art' in the title - i.e. just odd for the sake of it.

It's not astrix on the cover.... It's some odd dude with long hair, astrix has short hair and a slick mousetache that makes him look like a weirdo :Wink3:
