Allan has been living in Germany with his wife Moni since the unfortunate days in 1973 when the brothers Rolf and Klaus Fichter ('Yatha Sidhra'1974,'Dreamworld'1980) tried to revive Quintessence as Quintessence II and then as the New Quintessence Band in Freiburg (Southern Germany) and the original members Sambhu, Raja Ram and Allan were kept like captives and manipulated very badly. The press was constantly ridiculing them and they only played a handful of gigs in the area. This was the last sad chapter in the history of Quintessence. Allan has pursued his music to this day but unfortunately has never released any of it.These days Allan is living in Spain.

"Allan Mostert makes Other World music. Indo-ambient-darkcore-fusion music. Psychedelic essence music. Timeless music. His notes float on a rhythmic heat haze. His tonal poetry will drown you in oceans of bliss. He traces the mirage through the mist. He paints the outerness of innerness. He evokes the holy spirit of Pharoah, the dreamloop-layers of Holger. He sounds like all of these things. He sounds like none of these things." - Rob Chapman
Burning Shed CDRs are burnt to order and packaged in a stylish rubber stamped cardboard sleeve with card inlay.
