“Bardo Pond’s genius lies in the collision of contrasts.” The Sunday Times
 
“ranking alongside the very best of this group’s output.” The Wire
 
“a typically disorientating trip.” Uncut
 
Loosely formed in 1989 by guitar wielding art student siblings, Michael and John Gibbons, Bardo Pond became a reality in 1991 with the addition of vocalist and flautist, Isobel Sollenberger, bassist, Clint Takeda and drummer, Joe Culver (replaced in 1999 by trainee librarian, Ed Farnsworth). Bardo Pond are the flagship band of Philadelphia's Psychedelphia space-rock movement, which also included the likes of Aspera, Asteroid No. 4, the Azusa Plane, and tangentially the Lilys. They favour lengthy, deliberate sound explorations filled with all the hallmarks of modern-day space-rock: droning guitars, thick distortion, feedback, reverb, and washes of white noise.
