This is quite a unique release , as expected with genre-defying label Subsound Records. From a mystical frontier where the East meets the West comes a psychedelic wonder called The Cyclist Conspiracy. This musical collective consisting of ten men and women creates unique sonic escapism for the soul that embark any listener onto a long-haul voyage without further ado. New album “Mashallah Plan” is a psychedelic tapestry that blends influences from various parts of the world into a seamless unique “desert” rock experience – a monumental psychedelic piece set in the landscapes of Northern Africa and the Middle East bolstered by some magnificent choral work and powerful riffs.
The Cyclist Conspiracy, The (Anti) World Orchestra is the musical output of The Little Brothers dedicated to The Mysteries of The Last Age. Started as an informal project within the Society For The Development Of Alchemical Studies “Vasko Popa” in 2014, it is now a musical troupe consisting of ten male and female souls.
The orchestra draws influences from various parts of the world while trying to avoid superficial, “new age” eclecticism and direct its creative efforts towards the synthesis of the given elements. Whether it’s the Byzantine Empire or secret nomadic paths of the desert, the smokey café crowded with manges and frivolous women, or the steppe with the sky for shaman only, psychedelic or turkce rock, Middle or Far East, the journeys the cyclists taking are never the quest for the heart of this world.
Sometimes they appeared as a symbolic quest for Constantinople, the heart of The Cycling Empire of Byzantium, but they are always the quest for the heart of the only true light – Agape. The Cyclist Conspiracy have played numerous concerts in Serbia and neighboring countries, whether as headliners, support for other bands (Acid Mothers Temple, King Dude, Hayvanlar Alemi), or a part of festival lineups (Haywire Festival (RO), INdirekt (CRO), Zelenkovac Jazz Festival (BH), The Music of the Secret Society that Owns Belgrade (SR)).
Their new album “Mashallah Plan” is a psychedelic tapestry that blends influences from various parts of the world into a seamless unique “desert” rock experience – a monumental psychedelic piece set in the landscapes of Northern Africa and the Middle East bolstered by some magnificent choral work and powerful riffs. The band comments: “Mashallah Plan” is a story about a spiritual journey on a bicycle. This simple device reveals its profound symbolism only through the path of most resistance and thus represents a perfect esoteric vehicle for The Dark Age we are living through”.
