"EUROCK, one of the original alternative music magazines"...
-Stephen Hill (Hearts of Space)
"EUROCK is a rare example of, I'd call it culture. The work of a man who not only had a definite idea and followed it, but also had the true spirit for the matter (that's rare)."
-Uli Trepte (Guru Guru / Spacebox)
"Our music began shortly before Archie started to write about it. I have to point out that he was the very first to take E.M. seriously and who did a fanzine about it. This was some 4,000 miles away from where the music was happening -- in a pre-FAX era!"
-Klaus D. MÃ¼ller (manager Klaus Schulze)
The Magazine: A Multimedia CD-ROM extravaganza, THE GOLDEN AGE contains 1,100 Articles, 300 rare Photos, 1,200 Reviews, 350 Discographies, a complete Index + 25 minutes of 16-bit, digitized audio / video by Amon Duul II, Popol Vuh and Urban Sax. In addition, there is a brand new issue of EUROCK Magazine. It contains recent articles and interviews featuring some of Europe's original journalists and musicians who created the scene.
The Music: Since 1980 Japanese master musician Hiro Kawahara has been exploring the realms of electronic and progressive music releasing albums as leader of the groups Osiris, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, and more recently Heretic. His new album, featured on THE GOLDEN AGE, contains 40 minutes of music recorded between 1980 & 1999. A dense Zen electronic tone poem, it echoes the works of such luminaries as Kitaro, Steve Roach and Robert Fripp, yet has a distinct quality that puts it in a category all its own.
