Limited deluxe slipcase first press edition with stunning Arik Roper artwork. Now that the term Prog is no longer considered a four letter-word, the world is ready for a band like San Diego based Astra, who actually make the term vital and effortlessly cool. Their Psychedelic brand of Progressive Rock manages to avoid the ghastly, self-indulgent clichs that predominated the bloated gut of its bad hair styled mid-seventies/early eighties definition. Astra make timeless music for timeless people. Their sound is a true breath of fresh air in these generally stagnant times. The care and attention given to every detail within The Weirding displays a dedication that is these days seldom seen or heard. A definite must for fans of early 70's underground European Prog Psych, The Weirding is an absolute monster that is destined to be a future classic!
