Following the break-up of his previous outfit, Emergency Librarian, Amplified Man is the new project by songwriter Pete Kidd. This new EP is comprised of three instrumental tracks, It’s In Your Mind, Dream Sines and Fifth Dimension, which Kidd describes as “sonic boom ethereal rock”.

Propelled by a driving bass line, It’s In Your Mind sounds rather like early Kraftwerk covering The Sex Pistols, which is surely a good thing! There’s a definite space rock vibe track to the track, which continues on the dreamy, spacey second track, Dream Sines, which is reminiscent of the more ambient tracks by underground rock veterans, Hawkwind. The space rock vibe deepens further on Fifth Dimension, featuring some wigged-out guitar-playing, to close a splendid, highly recommended EP.
