Psychick Warriors Ov Gaia - Psychick Rhythms Vol. 1 EP
Psychick Warriors Ov Gaia - Psychick Rhythms Vol. 1
Label - KK Records
Released - 1993
Style - Electronic/Techno/Minimal
The Psychick Warriors Ov Gaia are currently Reinier Brekelmans, Joris Hilckmann and Tim Freeman (who is their ever present soundman). Previously Bobby Reiner was in the band but he was not present in the most recent release, "Record of Breaks." The band is from Holland on a Belgian label, KK Records. I understand Robert Heynen left the band to form a new band called Exquisite Corpse, also on the KK label. Around 1985 the original lineup were in an industrial band called The Infants. After this they went onto form Sluagh Ghairm which means "spirits cry" and lasted for two years.
In case you're wondering about the "psychick cross" logo they use, the references to the number 23 or the way they spell things on some of the earlier releases, they are not associated with the band Psychic TV. They were however associated with the Temple Ov Psychick Youth (TOPY) as they were probably memebers of this magickal/occult secret society. If that means nothing to you, then just know that they are "sound crafters" instead of musicians for ritual purposes.
