Sorcerer Records present a reissue of F/i's Space Mantra, originally released on RRRecords in 1988. The classic slice of American space rock is available on vinyl for the first time in nearly 30 years. Since 1981 Milwaukee's F/i have been pioneering a certain brand of experimental rock which encompasses elements of industrial and psychedelic space-rock sounds. Originally a purely electronic outfit heavily influenced by Throbbing Gristle and prolific in the underground tape scene, they made the transition to "rock band" in the mid '80s, and for many, the Space Mantra LP remains the high point. With fuzzed guitars, metronomic rhythms, swirling synths, and occasionally bucolic forays into blissful acoustics, it's a masterful take on cosmic music during the Reagan years. RIYL: Hawkwind, Amon Düül, Causa Sui and Cluster.
