[News] Sommor and Guerssen to reissue the 1972 album “Edge Of Time” by German band DOM

Monster tripped-out Floydian Psychedelia/Krautrock by this band from Düsseldorf featuring visual artist Gabor Baksay.

This is their sought-after album originally released in 1972.

Dark, atmospheric, hypnotic sound with percussion, flute, organ, guitars and early electronics/proto-Industrial sound collages…

DOM (Gabor and Laszlo Baksay, Rainer Puzalowski and Hans-Georg Stopka) evolved from a Beat/Psychedelic band called the Early Birds, later Set Mind, who were in a sort of sporty competition with another group called Spirits of Sounds, featuring Michael Rother’s Pre-NEU and Kraftwerk drummer Wolfgang Flür.

DOM were regulars at underground clubs from Düsseldorf such as the Creamcheese, where they rubbed shoulders with early Krafwerk and Can.

Edge Of Time” was recorded at the legendary Neubauer Studios (Harmonia, Kalacakra, Anima-Sound…) and subsequently released on the tiny Melocord label in 1972. Its enigmatic cover was designed by a friend of the band, Jutta Keime.
