about

Ultimate underground, lo-fi, psychedelic private press album recorded in Singapore by four US teens in 1975. Loose feel, raw sound, spacey prog /funk touches, sound effects and some proto-DIY, pre-punk vibes which bring to mind Velvet Underground or avant-garage 70s Cleveland bands like Pere Ubu but also hard-rockers ala Pink Fairies or Stray...

Crystalaugur was formed by four young ex-pats attending school in Singapore in the early 70s: Howard Kukla, Kim Bengs, Bryan Hall and Guy Rittger. For most of them this was their first serious musical experience.

“Terranaut” was recorded on a 4-track and subsequently released by the band in a private edition of 200 copies on their own Warped Records imprint. Bootlegged many times over the years, we present the first ever legit reissue of this impossible to find psychedelic artefact.

*First ever legit reissue done with the band’s involvement.

*Insert with rare photos and detailed liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Got Kinda Lost, Ugly Things), telling the fascinating story behind Crystalaugur and debunking many myths and false rumours about the band and this, their only album.

*Featured in Hans Pokora's ‘Record Collector Dream’s book with the maximum rarity scale

“…Terranaut is a rollicking, rumbling and lightly ramshackle bomb of cosmic teenage hard rock informed by an infatuation with the early rumblings of progressive rock (given a proto-punk edge by the discontent of the group’s constituents).” – Jeremy Cargill
