Pressurehed - Sudden Vertigo

"Born in the industrial music scene of Los Angeles, Pressurehed will emerge as the leading voice in the American space-rock universe.
Pressurehed was formed in 1987 in Hollywood (California) by vocalist Tommy Grenas and keyboardist Len Del Rio and for a while produced limited-edition cassettes. The band grew a cult mainly because of its live performances, where they used spectacular gothic/cyberpunk videos and slide projections.

Joined by Belgian bassist Marc Collignon, the duo made their first album, Infadrone. Collignon was replaced by Death Ride 69 guitarist Doran Shelley and Paul Fox of Trash Can School. With help from Helios Creed, the band recorded music for a spoken word album Sphynx by Hawkwind's Nik Turner.

Sudden Vertigo was born out of this line-up. Guitars take over keyboards, thereby resurrecting Chrome's nightmarish maelstroms and directing them into thundering and torrential jams. "
