Mining the further regions of avant psych-rock for the past 15 years, PU leader Eric Arn began in the legendary Crystalized Movements (which spawned Magic Hour and the Major Stars) in the 1980s. A rotating membership typifies the band, and a restlessness to stay put underlies a steady progression from distorted, psychedelic Nuggets-esque overload to full-blown free instrumental rock, and everything in between. Just before relocating from Austin,TX to Vienna, Austria in 2005, The band recorded ‘Loss of Affect’ (2006), the most outré document of the Primordial Undermind sound, for the Strange Attractors label. They’ve released 5 previous albums on Emperor Jones (US), Camera Obscura (Aus), and September Gurls (Ger).

“Reverberating with primitive hallucinogenic drones, garage rock grinds and improvisations that slowly build from half-formed blowouts to cosmic Stockhausen-style epics… PU have crawled out of the psychedelic undergrowth and evolved into something special” – Edwin Pouncey, The Wire 
“Words like trippy and psychedelic were invented for this kind of music, but they seem inadequate here… try “revelatory” instead” – Jennifer Kelly, Popmatters­primordialundermind­music/­Primordial+Undermind
