Yet another forgotten Man's Ruin casualty, brought to you by G.O.M.E. In 2001, as the legendary Man's Ruin was circling the drain, they managed to crank out this surprisingly consistent and thoroughly enjoyable album from San Jose's OPERATOR GENERATOR. As you're all no doubt aware, some bands had better luck than others when it came to getting their music heard post-Man's Ruin, and OPERATOR GENERATOR were, unfortunately, one of the more overlooked bands. As for the music itself? They owe the requisite debts to SABBATH, but there's a lot more going on here. These guys were equally influenced by the experimentation and melodic sense of late '60s/early '70s psych rock. Polar Fleet is a bit brief, but it's a great rock & roll record that will have no trouble holding your attention. "Soul of Lavamore", featuring an electric sitar, is worth the cost of admission alone. Highly recommended.

1. Equinox Planetarium
2. Polar Fleet
3. Museum's Flight
4. Atmospheric Insect/The Launch
5. Quaintance of Natherack
6. Arctic Quest
7. Infinite Loop
8. Soil of Lavamore

Cheeto said...

Awesome, Ron!!! Thanx for sharing the uploads! Man's Ruin totally ruled, so many great bands passed through those doors. Salud, my friend!

Big Jack said...

Man I don't know what the fuck is going on. All Ron's links give me "File Not Found". Maybe it's just RapidShare. They have a vendetta against me. I don't know. Thanks, though, Ron.

Can you guys re-up Ron's submissions so I can get them and put up proper posts? Thanks.

I realy don't know why you can't get them, but I checked them out and they all work perfect.


Cheeto said...

Yeah, bro, all Ron's links work for me, too. Try typing it into your browser, instead of copy and paste.
