My Solid Ground were a German band formed in 1968 (group's founder, writer, vocalist, guitarist Bernhard Rendel was just 14 years old). In 1971 they released their first and last album "My Solid Ground". This album worth checking just and only for his opening track, the 13min "Dirty Yellow Mist". One tripped krautrock piece driven by a monotonous, crunchy riff. The track escalates as more organ is added building intensity while the spoken vocals and pounding drums make the atmosphere even better. If their other songs were like this one... But most of them moving in more typical hard rock forms (I don't mean that they're bad...). "That's You" could be considered as proto-punk though. The second song that really makes difference for me is "The Executioner" which is quite dark... I really love this one and I dig it in a regular basis. This one is ripped from cd and includes a bunch of extra songs like the full 24min version of "Flash" (great tune!) and different mixes of four other songs. Dig It!
