London underground band Black Helium are everything I love about Psychedelica bands this release could help them ascend to great heights through the release of this debut album. Comprised of heavy friends Stuart Gray (vocals/guitar), Beck Harvey (vocals/bass) Davey Mulka (guitar) and Ben Davies (drums), this band brought a truly unique mix of sound to my ears. Being a big fan of an expansive build up in songs, this song represents what I love about psych and space rock. Solid drum and bass keeping the groove with guitars and noise just lifting you off to higher grounds.

‘Curtains At The Mausoleum’ taken from the BLACK HELIUM debut album ‘Primitive Fuck’ coming July 20th 2018 on Riot Season Records.

Influenced by bands such as Black Sabbath, Hawkwind, Amon Düül II and The Stooges; Primitive Fuck channels an era when psychedelic rock stood for mind expanding eclecticism, and hip shaking sonic hedonism in equal measure, moving from motor city heroism, to shapeless Kosmische ambient ego-death via space ritual riff worship. Now, with new drummer, Diogo Gomes on board, Primitive Fuck represents the birth of a band your psychiatrist warned you about.

Black Helium are a four-piece formed in 2016 for a special one-off Halloween gig at the notoriously heady Guild Navigator club in East London, and have since then spread their sonic gumbo of hard-edged psychedelic head-fuckery and Neanderthal glam rock swagger across the country.

Heavy friends Stuart Gray (vocals/guitar), Beck Harvey (vocals/bass) Davey Mulka (guitar) and Ben Davies (drums) went on to record their debut, Primitive Fuck, at Hermitage Studios with Margo Broom in March 2017. Although, Ben Davies disappeared abruptly after recording his drum tracks after experiencing a ‘profound life-changing mystical occurrence’.
