Architectural Metaphor - Odysseum Galacti

Architectural Metaphor have been spacing out professionally since the early 90s. The original core of Bill Buitenhuys, Paul Eggleston, Bob Foley, Dave Gorrill, Barry Corbett and Chris Mogan made cassette only releases in the late 80's. Members came and went Hawkwind style until the early 90's, when the lineup solidified as Paul Eggleston (synths), Greg Kozlowski (guitar) and Deb Young (vocals, drums). They were a staple of the Strange Daze Festival from '97-00. Deb was replaced by Pat Murphy of Dinosaur Jr fame in late 2000. Amy Risley was vocalist from 2000-2002, but no recordings of that era have surfaced yet. In 2005, they added the jazz award winning vocalist Andrea Aguayo to fill out the trio.
Their debut CD "Odysseum Galacti" is very trippy and features the original lineup for most of the album, and two songs from the trio of Paul/Greg/Deb. The followup "Creature of the Velvet Void" shows advancement from pure space freakout to more song orientation. "Viva", a live album from 2000 shows the instrumental power the band can bring as a trio. "Other Music" showcases the new trio with Murph on drums, a significant improvement in instrumental power. The next release, "Everything You Know is Wrong" is the most complete fusion of their talents, Neu meets Amon Düül II, with a healthy dollop of Hawkwind, Ashra and Ozric Tentacles thrown in.
