Cathedral – Statik Majik (1994)

I’m unsure if anyone has ever used Times New Roman on a record sleeve and gotten away with it like Cathedral have here. Honestly, it seems like the guys were stoned as fuck when they signed off on that artwork, and the same goes for the EP itself.

This is a gloriously mad little thing, which reeks of early Cathedral vibes, but hints at the psychedelic madness that would come on later records. “Cosmic Funeral” is one of my all time favourite songs, and the closing track, the 22 minuter “Voyage Of The Homeless Sapien” really needs to be heard to be believed.
