I Am The Sun[I](Harvest)[/I]

Dark Star were first making this sort of fleet and incandescent rock with the Terry Bickers-led Levitation - and, in spite of the fact that their big noise ambitions hasn't led to the sort of stadium-swelling success it might have enjoyed on another and better planet, this hasn't dampened their almost insanely boundless optimism, personified by Dave Francolini's octopus-like percussive style.

Comprising two warp factor remixes by Steve Osborne, 'I Am The Sun' gets where it's going fast, borne on a zigzag laser shot of synth, before reaching a blinding moment of musical epiphany as it catches its own reflection.
