4 stars First published in 1986, Dance of the Cozmic Warriorz is a remarkable collection of Zendik's unique musical pieces. The spiritual-mystical obsessions we can perceive in Zendik personal writtings are perfectly illustrated in these elaborate-spacey ritualised rockin songs. All compositions deliver highly groovy, sensual and tripped out excursions through buzzing sounds, theatrical incantations, fuzzy acid guitars and tribal pulses. Yin-Yang opens the album with a powerfully haunted ritualistic journey of sounds, featuring insistant rythms, fuzzed out guitars and Zendik's emotional-tormented-otherwordly vocals. Farm Jam is a propulsive freaked out psych improvisation including wha wha guitars, maniacal drum assault and kosmische synthesized epic strings. The Kiss is a jazzy-bluesy ballad including dancing sexadelic grooves. Madman is a damaged-sulfurous garagey song. Dance of the Cozmic Warriorz is a narcotic-druggy meditative instrumental. To conclude this album is constantly profound, expressive and challenging. it remains a metaphoric vehicule to reach superior states of consciousness, to acces to a sense of continuity and transcendance.

5 stars Another spacey sound guru comes to my ears ... Wulf ZENDIK / ZENDIK FARM ORGAZTRA can be called as a historical and "hysterical" obscurity in Krautrock / Space Rock scene.

In the first eccentric persistence "Yang / Yin" heavy dizziness was created synthesizers, guitar fuzzes, down-tempo bass sounds and systematic drumming freakout. Wulf's drunken voices can drive the instrumental shots more crazier. Not really deep but stoner, hypnotic, and spacey passion here and there. There is an extreme guitar fuzz terrorism too. A great opening action. "Farm Jam", that at first reminded me a funky,garagey, bloody tough like Zippo Zetterlink, is a unpolished tribalism finished by kinky synthesizer-based sound violence, wacky guitar shouts, and percussion ethnicity. Some keen noises in the middle part sound like infernal worm voices.

Another bluesy psychedelic flower garden is the following track "The Kiss". Old-fashioned, loose, drone and jammy smell can be felt like hippie movement in our younger days. Something nostalgic we can feel, can't we? Contrary to that, "Madman" the maddest, the heaviest, the craziest one, may cut our brain in pieces with its sharp-edged painful sound attacks like a ripper. Wulf's shout is a killer too.

The masterpiece for us (surely!) is the titled track. Simple but suprahypnotic, surrealistic, spacey phrases spiced with dazzling guitar and stoic, stable synthesizer basis should be appropriate for us to fall into infinity of his magnificent Krautrock world. Shoegaze, inorganic footsteps get us intoxicated deeply. Amazing mind altering agent really. "Let's Get Stoned" is not so stoner but sticky groovy sound train go through over our head. All instruments play percussively, whilst explosive voices reverberate like magical spelling or words of curse. The last "Inzanity" is the shortest but its aggression along with insane loudness and activity based upon stoned groove should drive us definitely manic. Obviously we get addicted into his inzanity finally.

Let me say this album "Danze Of The Cozmic Warriorz" is an obscure masterpiece of Kraut / Space / Indo-Raga scene. If you love Kraut obscurities, please check it out, and I'm sure you get immersed in his narcotic world.

4 stars Wulf Zendik was an American author, musician, philosopher, poet and commune leader. His tribal community was in Texas and the word Cult certainly gets mentioned in reference to to this. He passed away in 1999 but his commune lives on apparently. They believed in protesting in an artistic way not with guns or violence. Sex, drugs and rock and roll you could say. His last name(not his real name) means outlaw or heretic and he was anti-establishment, anti-government for sure. This six piece band must have practised a lot because they are really good. His band was known as the ZENDIK FARM ORGAZTRA. Some exotic instruments are in play here including his own made up instrument similar to a saz. He plays flute and sings. His vocals remind me of the singer from COMUS with that sheep-like, quivering style. Really good.

The year of that this was released can't be confirmed but I've seen 1988 in another place besides here so I'm going with that. And yes a top three for that year right now. We get just under an hour of Psychedelic music, very trippy at times with vocals on 4 tracks. "Yang Yin" is the almost 14 minute opener that has a distinct "Spirit In The Sky" vibe with that rhythm and distorted guitar. He sings about snorting crystals, smoking outrageous weed and drinking black blood. Alrighty then. He gets pretty passionate with his vocals and they really are incredible.

"Farm Jam" has lots of percussions and an exotic vibe as well. Catchy stuff although those loud ear piercing sounds before 5 1/2 minutes I could do without but they are brief. "The Kiss" is kind of creepy actually lyrically. We get keys and what sounds like an upright bass on this one instead of the bass guitar everywhere else on here. "Madman" is really uptempo with vocals. Check out how passionate he sings late to end it. Excellent.

"Danze Of The Cozmic Warriorz" is an almost 11 minute Krautrock inspired piece, very trippy and my favourite. We get flute over top and fuzzed out guitar in this all instrumental jam. "Lets Get Stoned" is uptempo with exotic sounds as Wulf sings about getting stoned on the farm. Very repetitive but really good. "Inzanity" ends it and this is the heaviest tune with screaming sounds over top. A trippy beat with distorted guitar. What a closer!

while I completely disagree with what this commune represented I'm rating the music alone and man this just connects with me. I real surprise actually and quite refreshing to hear something a little different from the norm.

4 stars I accidentally found this CD a few years ago and I loved it at first listen ( interesting, at first listen I locate the album in the late 60's or early 70's, so I was very surprised with the fact that the album came out in the late eighties). The music is trance-like and quite dark. There's East ... (read more)
