Cybotron - Colossus

Australian synth pioneer Steve Maxwell Von Braund formed CYBOTRON (defined appropriately as half man-half machine) in 1975 with fellow electronic musician Geoff Green. They performed live in Melbourne before recording their first album "Cybotron" in 1976. Descriptions of the bands music include cosmic, progressive, psychadelic and krautrock-inspired. "Cybotron" is to Australia what Tangerine Dream is to Germany, Jean-Michel Jarre is to France, Neuronium is to Spain and Wavestar & Steve Hillman is to England." (Jeff D., Sedalia MO) Two other albums were released, "Colossus" in 1978 and "Implosion" in 1980.
