about

"Strange Fish 2 is a double disc and like its predecessor is once again wonderfully varied in musical content and is worth the price of admission alone for side 4 which is a sprawling 25 minute plus epic by a band called “Mechanik” who originate from Spain. Everything is thrown into the melting pot here. I listened to this gargantuan masterpiece whilst motoring through driving rain in the black country (west midlands to you) and found the track utterly compelling from start to finish." (A Box of Dreams)

"The fourth and final vinyl side has been given to Mechanik for their triptych Kwangmyongsong/Radian/You Yourself Are The Teacher And The Guru. A splendid epic length construction it is too, from the compelling bass and drum construction at the heart of Kwangmyongsong with suitably psychedelic guitar soloing and effects, to the gentler cosmic vibes of Radian and the sampled voice at the start of You Yourself Are The Teacher And The Guru and the following construction revolving around a light toned, post rock oriented frail guitar motif, slowly growing in stature and intensity for a dramatic eruption, then slowly dying away into silence...
...The close to 25 minutes long three part epic that concludes this compilation a good enough reason in itself to seek this one out" (Progarchives www.progarchives.com/Review.asp?id=992950)

This beautifully presented double album features a whole side devoted to Mechanik's previously unreleased material plus single tracks from other alike artist. A new series of albums from Fruits de Mer that feature original, instrumental tracks influenced by classic krautrock, kosmische sounds, motorik beats, progressive rock, acid-jams, minimalist and ambient music, old and new. If you love Neu!, Klaus Schulze, the Brain and Ohr labels, extended prog rock tracks, side-long ambient pieces, more modern ambient sounds, acoustic guitar + electronics tracks - well,I hope you'll give this series a listen.

about

Mechanik Madrid, Spain

Mechanik was spawned in Madrid in late 2011 through the single-cylinder sound of a bass drum. It fed on low frequency bass vibrations, ear-piercing guitar shrieks and electronic intonarumori.
It grew defiantly, showing a will of its own way past the control of its operators, eventually detaching itself to vibrate away into deep space.

Track Name: You Yourself Are The Teacher & The Guru
"(What we are trying in all this discussions and talks here) is to see if we cannot radicaly bring about a transformation of the mind. Not accept things as they are, but to undestand it, to go into it, to examinate, give your heart and your mind with everything you have to find out a way of living differently.
But that depends on you and not somebody else, because in this there's no teacher, no pupil, there's no leader, there's no guru, there's no master, no servant. You yourself are the teacher and the pupil, you are the master, you are the guru, you are the leader.
And, to understand is to transform what is.
You are everything"

Jiddu Krishnamurti
Track Name: Most People Were Silent
"We knew the world would not be the same. Few people laughed, few people cried, most people were silent... I remembered the lines from the Hindu scripture, The Bhagavad Gita: Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says: "Now i'm become death, the destroyer of worlds."

Julius Robert Oppenheimer
