News: Quantum Fantay released their 7th full length studio album Tessellation Of Euclidean Space in mid July. This is a title I'm very much looking forward to hearing.
Overview: Flemish group Quantum Fantay, lead by synthesist Pieter Van den Broeck (Pete Mush), are from the latest crop of new bands to play in the post You era Gong style. Following in the footsteps of Ozric Tentacles, Hidria Spacefolk, and Korai Orom, Quantum Fantay are on the heavier side of the continuum. Like Ozric, they embrace the raucous Moog sequencing that is also prominent is some areas of electronica. But Quantum Fantay stop short of techno, and use regular rock structures and instruments, including real drums. Quantum Fantay might be my favorite band today in the style. They continue to improve and add much needed energy and innovation to the space rock genre - a genre that I'm prone to enjoy in any case. The name was intended to be Quantum Fantasy, but an early concert flyer had it misspelled - and so they just left it. Why not right?
