about

LIMITED EDITION of 250 copies of the vinyl!!! Released on 5 June 2020.

- “a gloriously blissed out set” (The Wire / August 2020)
- “ a great, deeply energising record” (The Quietus / June 2020)
- “as contemporary deep psych trips go this is seriously potent gear - the perfect soundtrack for invoking the messianic spirit of Timothy Leary” (Shindig / July 2020)
- “fascinating guitar mantras” (Lust For Life / June 2020)
- “superb meditative collection” (Narc / June 2020)
- “J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.) said it was a “killer album”. I bow to that accordingly” (OOR / June 2020)


Bhajan Bhoy is Ajay Saggar, a musical maverick who has spread his wings over many projects in the last 30 years (King Champion Sounds / Deutsche Ashram / The Common Cold / Dandelion Adventure / the Bent Moustache / Donkey), consistently releasing highly acclaimed albums and touring hard, but releases his first solo album in 2020.

“Bless Bless” is the fruition of months of Ajay locking himself up in his studio and working days and nights to make this wondrous and beautiful album filled with kosmische guitar psych magick / sonic raga trips / melodic mantras / esoteric electronica that thrill and elevate the listener to a higher sonic plain. The music reaches out to the stars in the same vein if Popol Vuh jammed with John Fahey, Terry Riley, and Robin Guthrie, to produce a beautiful soundscape in which the listener can sink into and float downstream.


Reactions to the album to date:

“This is the best thing that Ajay has released” (Steve Barker / “On The Wire” BBC Radio Lancashire)
“I really love this album” (Mike Newman / head honcho at Beyond Beyond Is Beyond label)
“Sounds REALLY great” (Stuart Braithwaite / Mogwai)
“Cool cool sounds” (Ripley + Sanae / Moon Duo)
“Killer album!" (J Mascis / Dinosaur Jr.)
