Released 28/06/10. Esoteric Recordings continue with releases on their new Reactive imprint, (dedicated to reissues of classic German rock), with the first ever UK CD release of Psychonaut by Brainticket. Formed in 1968 by Belgian born keyboard player Joel Vandroogenbroeck, the band released their debut album, the extreme psychedelic Cottonwoodhill in Germany in 1971. Breaking apart soon after, Vandroogenbroeck formed a new incarnation of the group with drummer Barney Palm comprising Swiss and Italian musicians.
Psychonaut was recorded in Milan in 1972 and was less intense than Cottonwood Hill but was more cohesive and was an impressive Psychedelic rock album, later much sampled by European Trance DJs. Psychonaut is one of THE essential albums associated with the German Psych & Prog scene of the early 1970’s.
