    In 2013 The Roundtable curated a dedicated program re-documenting the music of Australia’s legendary space rock band Cybotron. A new generation of electronic music enthusiasts and krautrock fans alike had been introduced or had perhaps been reconnected to the unlikely yet incredible sounds of Australia’s unique brand of ‘kosmische musik’. This archival series included Steve Maxwell Von Braund’s groundbreaking solo album Monster Planet (1975). An independent LP which has long fascinated and astonished record collectors across the globe for its wonderfully absurd cover artwork and DIY aesthetics, not to mention a pioneering exploration into home-spun synthesis and raw interplanetary funk. Indeed an outsider classic…

    On the cusp of the 45th anniversary of the original release of Monster Planet, The Roundtable has again been granted privileged access to the Cybotron archives. To celebrate Record Store Day 2020 we have compiled a compendium of ‘lost’ tracks collected from 1974 to 1981, ranging from ARP synthesiser experiments to heady space rock to sophisticated electro-sounds of classic Cybotron. Return To Monster Planet offers a glimpse into the fascinating musical world of Steve Braund, one of the most marginalised yet singular artists to emerge from the golden (space) age of Australian music.

    A sequel to the cult 1975 Australian space rock album Monster Planet.

    Previously unreleased cosmic music/krautrock from the Cybotron founder.

    Special Record Store Day 2020 release.

    Includes 100 random copies of coloured vinyl. Blue and yellow 'Cosmic Joker' colourway.

    Artwork by Andy Votel from Finders Keepers Records.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Return To Monster Planet via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
