First time on CD!
FLOWERS MUST DIE have a name inspired by Ash Ra Temple's great masterpiece, so you might easily assume that Flowers Must Die is just yet another band on the, stylistically rather narrow, spectrum of space rock revivalism that has grown increasingly crowded over the last decade. And you would be right, but only to a certain extent. Sure the Hawkwind and Amon Duul II influences are there and yes, there is definitely an abundance of effect pedals and improvised freak-outs. But if you try to look beyond that you might be able to catch the nuances. It's these nuances that inspire some listeners to come up with new labels like Doom Jazz and Oriental Hard Rock to describe FMD's music. Flowers Must Die started playing together in 2006 in Linkoping, Sweden. They have shared a bill with a lot of great bands like OM, White Hills, Konono No1, Master Musicians Of Bukkake, Hills and In Zaire.
Their self/titled third album, also known as "III", is out now on digipack CD by Kommun2.
