Country Weather disbanded at the start ofwhen Douglass and Baron quit to form a band called Mistress. Country Weather re-formed in August to play a benefit concert for a friend in need of a liver transplant. What was intended to be a one-off event led to the full-time reformation of the band with a lineup of Carter, Derr, Graham Cooper lead guitar and vocalsand Lloyd Ferris drums and vocalsa former member of Appaloosa. Inthe band changed its name to Weather, and Ferris left, replaced by Terry Ratza.
Inthe Swiss label RD Records, which specializes in unreleased music from the '60s and early '70s, released the band's debut album, Country Weather, as a double vinyl LP.
The album contained vintage recordings made between and Bobby Callender - Rainbow - Bobby Callender. The first album consists of music to be seriously stoned to. Young negro-turned-mystic Bobby is joined by an orchestra and a host of other musicians including Funatics Hugh McCracken for a trip to the local soul-serious opium-den hippie scribblings, here.
Sitars and tablas abound in this artifact of an era. Find a paisley cushion, adopt lotus position and contemplate your inner self or navel fluff! Produced by Alan Lorber whose other 'in' projects included Ultimate Spinach.
The second album is a double more conceptual piece. The third is a homage to the 19th century painters and was recorded with a full orchestra, sometimes heading into progressive territory, with good electric guitar work, flutes and organ.

He became friends with the Slickee Boys, and began writing songs on guard duty. Some of these became later Gizmos tunes, but the main project was a new band with the O. Rex brothers called The Afrika Korps. The recordings became free-for-all punk-rock "super sessions"--with various other Slickee Boys members, D. The resulting LP still stands as one of the most spontaneous and least trendy things to come out of the early Amerikan punk scene.
This CD includes the classick LP plus eight studio outtakes and four live tracks, and comes with a page booklet featuring mostly unpublished photos and a detailed history of the Afrika Korps. Rex, and The Kaiser's Kittens has thrown up how punky!
Twenty-two yes! Every gem is short and sweet. Every verse is a reprise, every song a chrous with a harmonious soundmix nothing like the usual Heavy Metal row most 'punks' employ.
Despite their threats about slapping your pretty face and ripping your pretty lace, they're sweet kids. Real innocence always tries to be tough. It's real difficult to find these days, but it's one of the very best garageoriented compilations of the era, and a pretty diverse one. The heart of the collection, however, are the five early, preElektra sides by the MC5, which are garage rock at its most metallic and furious, and the Dylanesque mid'60s hard rock sides by Bob Seger, a good decade before he broke nationally.
The sound is excellent, as are the liner notes; it's worth paying collector prices for. Detroit, MI, U. Flint, MI, U. Miracle Workers - Inside Out garage revival Go now. Although the sound of this recording is a little cleaner than it needs to be for this style of music just like most of the VOXX recordings of the mid-'80sthis album really spotlights the fact that this is one of the only garage bands that can actually boast song-writing as one of their strengths.
Most bands contented themselves to just dig up a bunch of obscure cover songs and maybe only wrack their brains enough to write one or two half way decent originals. Here the Workers present a dozen or so great originals with only one carefully picked cover song "Hey Little Bird". These are songs I can still hum even if I haven't listened to this disc in ages.

Free jazz fairy tale music from France circa It's very moody and dark, but then there will be eruptions of Warner Bros cartoon music, almost. You could imagine a cartoon mouse tip-toeing around to some of this.
A very scared little mouse. This ultra-rare Futura LP is on the infamous Nurse With Wound list and fans of skronky Euro-improv as well as the more cosmic psych soundscapes of, say, Taj Mahal Travellers, should investigate. Weird and noisy, invading the deepest corners in our minds. Comparable to bands like Art Zoyd and Shub Niggurath. Rock n roll psychedelia from their weird and wonderfull cosmos with melodies that will linger in your mind.
They were active untill late 90s. Today on their homepage there's only an announcement that "their tour was cancelled". All their albums -except this- are available from the September Gurls label. Todd Homer: vcls, gtr, bs, musette, electronics, bells, etc. Larry Robinson: vcls, gtr, synth, farfisa, drms, tambourine, toys, etc. And how many records can do that? In case you're wondering about the name, Edwin Mooseheart was exiled from a NY chapter of the Odd-Fellowship in on charges of child molestation.
But Mooseheart denied it all, claiming that the real reason for his exile was his talking on the subject of UFOs visiting Earth. Formed in with a debt to jazz fusion as well as space rock, the band originally included guitarist Ed Wynne, drummer Nick Van Gelder, keyboard player Joie Hinton, bassist Roly Wynne and second guitarist Gavin Griffiths though Griffiths left in The Ozrics played in clubs around London, meanwhile releasing six cassette-only albums beginning with 's Erpsongs.
All six were later collected on the Vitamin Enhanced box set, despite a threatened lawsuit from the Kellogg's cereal company for questionable artwork. Ozric Tentacles' first major release, the album Erpland, foreshadowed the crusty movement, a British parallel to America's hippy movement of the '60s. Crusties borrowed the hippies' organic dress plus the cosmic thinking of new agers, and spent most of their time traveling around England to various festivals and outdoor gatherings.
The movement fit in perfectly with bands like Ozric Tentacles and the Levellers, and the Ozrics' album Strangeitude became their biggest seller yet, occasioning a U. After the British-only Afterswish and Live Underslunky, 's Jurassic Shift hit number 11 on the British charts -- quite a feat for a self-produced album released on the Ozrics' own Dovetail label.
The album was released in America by I. Records, as was 's Arborescence. Neither album translated well with American audiences -- despite the band's first U. Waterfall Cities closed out the decade inand the following summer the group resurfaced with Swirly Termination. Hinton and Pepler also perform in the trance-techno outfit Eat Static, and have released several albums on Planet Dog Records. Mecano - - Autoportrait The story of Mecano starts with a painting, made in by founder Dirk Polak after finding an old booklet belonging to a Meccano construction box, as fabricated and sold in the thirties.
Another advantage of Ton and the Bolten brothers, beside their musical abilities, was that they had unlimited acces to Paradiso, the best rehearsing place a band could think of and they started experimenting and putting the music together, mainly based on the ideas of Dirk and the Bolten brothers Emerging from the punk-era, Mecano is best described as new wave, leaving raw punk behind, adding poetry and remarkable arrangements, colored with unusual guitar harmonies, combining Allen Ravenstine-like squeeks with time experiments, sonicly floating as one, with brashness and provocation, converting into an ashtonishing electric blend.
In the summer of '79 Mecano made their stage debut and began touring the alternative circuit. Later they toured France and their '81 Paris concert had an enthousiastic press in the France Soir, their high intensity performance in Reims left a huge impression on the audience. Early newly founded Torso Records had released the mini-lp Untitled and in that same year Subtitled, both nowadays reaching high prices amongst collectors.
At last the Mecano files have been opened and the recordings were professionally remasterd by Cor and Tejo Bolten, resulting in exellent sound quality. This double cd has all of Mecano's studio-recordings. Also including live recordings who are never been issued before. A true history landmark. Leo Schelvis Resources : mecano. Wire - - Completing the transformation from abstract punks to art-rockers, is Wire's most impressive album.
The virulance still remains, but with more depth and style than elsewhere. Ever-changing writing partnerships create a new level of tension, pulling the release in often-disparate directions. On the surface this creates a rather disjointed album, but the sheer quality of writing and performance soon banishes such thoughts for good.
Experimentation is still evident—most notably in the harrowing The Other Window that tells the story of a man travelling on a foreign train.
From his window, he notices a dying horse fataly trapped in a barbed wire fence. Wire's keen sense of observation also appears within the amusing On Returning, emphasising the way British people sometimes travel overseas with a level of nonchalance and arrogance: 'You'll be sorry when the sun has roasted you to lobster red'; 'On arriving with the third language tucked into your briefcase next to your toothbrush'.
The musical high-point arrives halfway through the album in the shape of A Mutual Friend. The arrangement is rather less contemporary than any of the other tracks, combining various guitars with cor anglais passage and evolving drum beats that range from delicate cymbal play to rampaging tom rolls. The reissue also adds a four track EP with one piece from each member of Wire, and the cutting B-side Go Ahead, which probably says more about the situation with the band's record label at the time than any other piece of prose.
If you like Wire then you'll adore and although this is sometimes one of the most painfully disjointed albums you're ever likely to hear it's also one of the best. If anyone wants to set them up individually, feel free. Keep them going strong, share, all good stuff here.
Through a dense psychedelic wall of sound emerge melodies and lyrics of intricate beauty, and surprisingly powerful songs with an endearing naivete. Initially, the intensity of sound and extended arrangements are difficult to penetrate, but perseverence pays off.
The barrage of effects is not there to conceal any inadequacies, rather they begin with great songs which develop into a compelling electrical confusion. It's hard to find any bad tracks, but certain ones stand out above the others. But the hidden gem is "All Over Me" which is easy to overlook, with ethereal vocals over a beautifully understated backing.
I can't recommend this album highly enough. It's my favourite amongst lots of favourites this year. Well worth a careful listen. There's one pair of granny glasses and one paisley shirt on the cover, and there's little advance in the sound to tell you that this record was made inbut SIx Days is still new in its revisionism.
It all drips with echo, Mamas Gone A-Hunting - Siren (30) - Plays (Vinyl, reverb and voices disappearing up wind-tunnels, as melodies chime hazily or stamp recklessly on duelling colour-guitars.
Much of Lord John's strength lay in lead guitarist Ray Normandy, who shoulders the bulk of the musical end. He's powerful but also aware of melodic structure.
Normandy will take things to the edge, but he knows when to pull back, too. Along with solid vocals, which run the gamut of spry pop, acid-tinged psychedelia, and moody post-punk, and rich material, Lord John has a lot to rave about. Mapfumo was a mainstay in the decolonization and anti-apartheid movements, and gained a formidable reputation as an outspoken critic of the intolerable Ian Smith regime during the years leading to independence.
He then turned his lyrical wrath towards the corrupt leadership of President Mugabe, who turned out to be another ruthless despot. His music was censured and repressed, but gained a stronghold with the guerrillas fighting in the bush, just as much as with the common people seeking a voice they could identify with.
Lion Songs is an excellent opportunity to capture the essence of a true revolutionary with unwavering principles who threw the weight of his music against all adversaries, and lived to tell the tale. Due to relentless political pressure taking its personal toll, Mapfumo went into exile to America inwhere he remains to this date.
But his music continues to cast a beam of hope back in Zimbabwe, where the struggle continues, and he is affectionately recognized as The Lion. These songs, recorded between andtell the story in unforgettable performances by the man and his extraordinary musicians, including rare and unreleased tracks. Like Fela Kuti and Bob Marley, singer, composer, and bandleader Thomas Mapfumo and his music came to represent his native country's anticolonial struggle and cultural identity.
Mapfumo was born in in what was then the British colony of Rhodesia now Zimbabwe. The trajectory of his career—from early performances of rock 'n' roll tunes to later creating a new genre based on traditional Zimbabwean music, including the sacred mbira, and African and Western pop—is a metaphor for Zimbabwe's evolution from colony to independent nation. Lion Songs is an authoritative biography of Mapfumo that narrates the life and career of this creative, complex, and iconic figure.
Banning Eyre ties the arc of Mapfumo's career to the history of Zimbabwe. The genre Mapfumo created in the s called chimurenga, or "struggle" music, challenged the Rhodesian government—which banned his music and jailed him—and became important to Zimbabwe achieving independence in In the s and s Mapfumo's international profile grew along with his opposition to Robert Mugabe's dictatorship.
Beginning inMapfumo and key band and family members left Zimbabwe. Many of them, including Mapfumo, now reside in Eugene, Oregon. A labor of love, Lion Songs is the product of a twenty-five-year friendship and professional relationship between Eyre and Mapfumo that demonstrates Mapfumo's musical and political importance to his nation, its freedom struggle, and its culture.
Tracks 1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 15, 18, 20, and 22 are all excerpts from interviews with Thomas Mapfumo. His is the quieter, answering voice. Mapfumo created this song with lead guitarist Joshua Dube, and the original single was credited to both of them. Mapfumo re-recorded this song in for the album Manhungetunge. The original master tape of the single has been lost and it has appeared on no other compilation. This is also from the Acid Band inand it expresses the suffering of people on the land during the liberation struggle.
They were deprived of basic goods, terrorized by both sides in the war, and generally made powerless victims. This song tugged hard at the hearts of their relatives in the city. Soon after their formation inthe Blacks Unlimited created this version of an older song that refers to the uniformly sized boots mine workers were forced to wear while working.
Deadly Weapons 8. Burnt-Out Hotel 9. Howling Hole Next One Is Real Not Knowing Remix Babylonian Tower Remix Hole Version Accidental Remix Between its foundation in and its dissolution seven years later, Minimal Compact played a crucial role in the European rock scene.
Malka Spigel bass, vocalsSamy Birnbach vocals, texts and Berry Sakharof guitars, keyboards, vocals left their native Tel-Aviv in for Amsterdam in search of an escape from the provincial attitudes of their own city. Of the trio, only Berry was a "real" musician. Malka was "learning to play the bass", while Samy was better known as a DJ and a music fan who dabbled in poetry. They recorded a 2-song demo at home, and consequently become one of the very first artists signed to the Belgian Crammed label.
During the recording for a speculative 7" in a little studio in the Belgian countryside, it became quickly evident that the trio had hit upon something worthy of development and a their first, self-titled, mini album was the fruit of this.
Their burgeoning style was a heavily Middle-Eastern coloured brand of post New Wavebased on driving rhythms, scratchy guitars and their own very un- "Anglo-American" style of vocalisation. In this way they both prefigured "indie-dance" and later fascinations with so called "world music". One by One, the second album, was recorded in London inand like it's predecessor co-produced by Dick Polak from Dutch band Mecano and Crammed supremo Marc Hollander.
With this release Minimal Compact had become a "real band" with the adddition of the native LP Max Franken on drums. Now Minimal could play live, this was to prove a strong element in their career. As Minimal began to tour more extensively they went from strength to strength as a live band and could certainly rock any house!!
Deadly Weaponsproduced by Gilles Martin and Peter Principle dates from and is considered by some their most experimental album. Nonetheless it threw up a "club classic" of the time in the shape of "Next One Is Real" famously remixed by Dick O'Dell, one time boss of the Guerilla label. The sleeve was by Neville Brody. Fortis had previously collaborated with Malka on their 7 codes tape a low-fi home tape effort which had done nicely in the indie shops in Amsterdam.
Touring by this point took them further and further afield, everywhere from Palermo to Kyoto fell to their conquest although typically for the time British success was limited to an NME single of the week and a John Peel session. Raging Souls was released in The touring continued but their goal of following up their record success in the USA was never acheived as several planned tours were cancelled because the US immigration authorities refused to grant them visas.
Minimal Compact Live was recorded in in Rennes, France, this last album came out after the band split in ' Minimal today Berry Sakharof and Rami Fortis have both returned to Tel Aviv where they have enjoyed huge popularity both together and seperately. Malka is a partner with Colin Newman in the swim label based in London. She has released several solo albums as well as partnering Newman in Immersion, on his solo albums and on their recent live collaboration.
According to legend, Max Franken who never left Amsterdam still plays drums and football!! Much of his post-Seeds work fit the mold of a curious s relic, a hippie acid casualty with a strong cult following, in the mold of Roky Erickson. Saxon began his career under the name Little Richie Marsh, performing sugary, doo wop-influenced teenage pop in Changing his name to Sky Saxon, he joined two L. Saxon continued to record under the Seeds' name following the group's official dissolution inreleasing a series of singles that increasingly reflected a drug-induced separation from reality.
Saxon, who had not produced any new albums sincereturned on the U. Firewall featured guest appearances from members of such California neo-psychedelic bands as the Dream Syndicate, the Plimsouls, the Droogs, and Yard Trauma, demonstrating Saxon's enduring influence and appeal, particularly among that set of musicians. That same year, Saxon recorded a largely unrehearsed live album with Purple Electricity, a one-off project featuring members of Redd Kross and the Primates, entitled Private Party.
Saxon has since returned to Hawaii. Focused on the garage scene of the era U. Pure energy - young, loud and innocent. The cover on 19 is by the now famous Darren Merinuk. Justen O'Brien sings and plays virtually every instrument; "Jake" apparently was the drummer.
The album cover makes you think that it might be some sort of gospel album, but the instant you start playing it you'll be plunged into a phased, flanged, reverbed, lo-fi, acid-inflected wonderland of major 7th chords, crooner melodies, cheesy keyboards, and utterly baffling, abstract lyrics about "time," "tears," and the "truth. This is one of my all-time favorite discoveries. I'd love to hear what you think of it. You may download it hereand I strongly encourage you to!
Fire of Love sold extremely well for an independent; it was a favorite of virtually every critic who heard it in Miami showcased a different lineup as well.
Ward Dotson replaced Congo Powers temporarily, at least on guitar, and there were a ton of guest performances, including Debbie Harry and Chris Stein. Stein produced the album. Off the bat the disc suffers from a thin mix. Going for a rougher sound, Stein left the instruments at one level and boosted Pierce's vocal.
There is plenty of guitar here, screaming and moping like a drunken orphan from the Texas flatlands, but next to its predecessor it sounds drier and reedier. Ultimately it hardly matters. Going for a higher, more desolate sound, frontman and slide player Jeffrey Lee Pierce and his band were literally on fire.
The songs here, from "Carry Me," "Like Calling Up Thunder," "Devil in the Woods," "Watermelon Man," "Bad Indian," and "Texas Serenade," among others, centered themselves on a mutant form of country music that met the post-punk ethos in the desert, fought and bloodied each other, and decided to stay together. This is hardcore snake-charming music as in water moccasins not cobrasevil, smoky, brash, and libidinally uttered. Their spooky version of an already creepy tune by Creedence Clearwater Revival, "Run Through the Jungle" runs the gamut from sexual nightmare to voodoo ritual gone awry.
Finally, Pierce and company pull out all the roots and reveal them for what they are: "John Hardy," is a squalling punk-blues, with the heart of the country in cardiac arrest.
Miami was given a rough go when it was issued for its production. But in the bird's-eye view of history its songs stack up, track for track, with Fire of Love and continue to echo well into this long good night. After a quick gig or two at the Dive they set about recording their first self-titled Ep released on Voxx Records March which continues to sell to this very day. An article in Vanity Fair magazine in June about the big 60s style resurgence featured a two-page color photo by Mary Ellen Mark, and some copy about the band.
So instead of a press kit, the band showed the mag around town to score some prestigious gigs. By the group had new drummers, bassists, and finally decided to add a lead singer, former Ford model Sharon Middendorf. Two tours each to Florida and California, a fair amount of US airplay on college stations, and quite a lot of airplay in Europe, especially Greece!?
A few months after playing the Mind Circus event at Temple Universty in Philadelphia during springthe group was disbanded by Dino after certain members failed to commit for the next tour. Now you can hear all the previous vinyl-only releases along with a couple of previously unreleased studio and live rehearsal cuts combined on a brand new CD release from Tripwave!

Everything about the band was right - the look, the sound, the attitude and Mods around the globe hailed them as the new Mod Messiahs. Unfortunately, and for reasons that are no longer remembered, the album never saw the light of day - it sat on the shelves at Acid Jazz gathering dust.

The band's second album, Glebe, released later that year, displayed a reggae influence.
This was followed by The Bones of Barry Harrison, a compilation of live recordings from to Unfortunately, the overall sound quality on this LP was less than excellent. Dave Studdert folded the band in but re-emerged a year later with a new Tactics, which retained Angus Douglas and added Nicky Baruch vocals, percussion, fluteSnajik bassand Tony Donohue drums.
The resulting album, Blue and White Future Whale, had beautiful, vaguely psychedelic cover art but failed yet again to reach a mass audience. By this time Tactics were closer to the mainstream, but not close enough - Dave Studdert just had art in his blood. Back in his home town, the band which had produced some excellent music but never had any chart success at all was virtually completely forgotten, except for those who were in the right place at the right time, and had the ears to hear.
Hunger - - Strictly from. One of my favourite psychedelic albums ever. A must to all collectors of 60's psychedelia! Excellent moody garage psych heavier than most organ-led groups with insistent rhythm and frequent fuzz bursts.
Quite trippy like a heavier 'swinging London' sound. The test pressing version is included and with different takes, weezy organ and emphasizing the group's dual leads. The album Strictly From Hunger was released in It was to be the only release from the group, as a streak of bad luck broke the band apart. Unfortunately on two separate occasions their equipment was stolen.
The group featured long organ driven instrumental breaks with piercing guitar lines between some strong songwriting in a majority of their songs.
They were a very popular group that was rising fast in the California psychedelic scene. By the time it was over they were right on the verge of crossing over to hard rock. Songs like "Workshop," which delves into your thought processes and dreams, I thought, were very introspective and thought provoking, and great musically. With all of the sound effects which were fairly new at the time and the strong vocal inflections from the pipes of Bill Daffern drumsthe song still sounds as hauntingly fresh today as the day it was laid down in the studio.
Mike Parkinson normally handled all the vocals. John Morton lead guitarSteve Hansen rhythm guitarTom Tanory bass were the core of the group that supported the great songwriting and vocals. This particular track made me realize that this group would have evolved quite interestingly if they had remained together. The potential for moving more into fusion was evident in their music right from the start. Every song serves as an excellent example of the cross pollination of genres.
They were so much more than the psych-rock band that they were generally perceived as. After the 28th Day, Marquis and Cloward formed the Downsiders, a band that moved along the trails of Marquis songwriting.
Those familiar with 28th Day, will recognise the sense of melody, even if sometimes follows more unconventional ways, the tense in Marquis guitar and vocals, and his psychedelic point of view.
On "Pony Made Of Ice", 6 min. In the mid-'90s, Marquis formed the eccentric space pop outfit the Snowmen and continued to release solo efforts edit:take a look at the comments for these.
With two amazing albums on Mammoth Records, culminating with the essential All My Friends Are Fish, and a national influence left in the wake of several cross-country tours, the Downsiders would have most likely risen to the top of the Sub Pop-sparked underground explosion had they lasted even one year more. Everyone went to every one of their shows--punkers, alterna-kids, hippies, frat dudes and sorority chicks alike packed in tight at Wall Street and the Burro Room waiting for Cole's cue, "And I took a ride!
All My Friends Are Fish was recorded on a day when everything clicked, when Cole Marquis was getting maximum mileage from his dead pan voice, when the band was in perfect form and hammering out a wild melange of psychedelia, folk-punk, and pure garage energy.
The musical textures are dazzlingly varied, from the poppy "I Wanna Drive" and menacing hard rock of "Old Black Crow" to numbers that are wildly experimental.
The extended intro to "Feet of Clay has a bizarre mix of fuzzed out bass, acoustic guitar, and frantic drumming that sounds like a folk band trying to invent speed metal.

Osjan is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating bands on the Polish stage. Formed 28 years ago, they still remain part of the underground. They play concerts infrequently and rarely release records. Osjan's work can be described as an original synthesis of many traditions and music cultures. The group's strength lies in its enormous musical imagination, creativity and genuine message.
The musicians have never attached importance to their public image. Osjan is surrounded by a mysterious aura, and facts about the band's activities merge with legend. The history of Osjan dates back to the s and Crocow's musical circles grouped around the Piwnica pod Baranami club, then the center of Cracow's artists and counterculture.
At that time Jacek Ostaszewski, a well-known jazz double bass player, and guitarist Marek Jackowski, both from the band Anawa, decided to start a new project. The group's early rehearsals took place in many different places, most often hotel rooms.
The band used to regularly perform with Black Horse Cheavers, a Cherokee shaman. However, it is not the musicians, but the search for their own artistic expression that explains the Osjan phenomenon. In the s, in an atmosphere ruled by banal rock on the one hand and complicated jazz structures on the other, Osjan looked for a different way, for a simplified form of expression: "For example, we would play for half an hour on two or three notes," remembers Ostaszewski.
The group used various elements of traditional Balkan, African, Slavic and Indian music and managed to combine them with free jazz and European classical music. An important influence on shaping the group's musical image were concerts with Don Cherry, as well as inspiration from Zen Buddhism.
Osjan belongs to the small circle of performers who have developed their own original style. The group's compositions, labeled as ethnic music, world music, and so on, reveal the extent of its members' musical quest, as do their performances. For them, playing music together is a form of communication and constant dialogue between themselves and the audience. That is why concerts, when they do happen, are so important to them-there is a dialogue between Waglewski's guitar and Nowakowski's drums, Ostaszewski's flutes and Kurtis's percussion, but the freedom of improvisation does not destroy the overall structure of the concert.
No wonder then that Osjan's rich experience was emvulated by other performers, for example, Maanam a group formed by Jackowski and Kurtis in its early days and Voo Voo, another unique Polish rock band, headed by Waglewski. Osjan's musicians call the time between the mids and mids a long "hibernation period," as they were occupied with their own activities-teaching, running workshops and carrying out their own musical, and in the case of Nowakowski, literary, projects.
But this did not have a negative influence on the group: "Last year we did a concert tour called Jam Osjan which resulted in a documentary by Andrzej Titkow," says Kurtis. They're the new generation of Osjan fans. None of the big record companies were willing to put out Roots," remembers Kurtis. Concerts scheduled for the fall will probably prove that Osjan deserves its place at the forefront of Polish independent groups.
Wojtek Waglewski - gitara 12 strunowa, sanza, voc. The son of America's most celebrated songwriter, Carmichael conceived a special devoted to reintroducing a new generation to his father's children's record Hoagy Carmichael's Having a Party.
Introduced to a jazz fusion band named the Stark Reality, who'd recorded music for WGBH in the past, he allowed group leader Monty Stark the chance to re-harmonize and re-imagine the compositions of Carmichael Sr. The results were less Electric Company and more Magic Band, though it appeared on the record shelves through AJP with a minimum of fuss.
Stark Reality appear not as an in-the-pocket funk band or agitated soul shouters, but as a group supremely talented at late-'60s fusion: half jazz-rock and half acid rock. Although a Hoagy Carmichael children's record from certainly has a low potential for reimagined flights of distorted frenzy, bandleader Monty Stark forced each of these compositions through extensive reharmonization, bringing them to the turned-on generation and, thus, making them sound hardly dated at all at least, in The Stark LP are most reminiscent of Larry Coryell or the early Soft Machine; they state a bizarre, barely tuneful theme, then spend a period of time making that theme sensible to listeners, and often insanely catchy, by improvising on it extensively -- worrying it to death with fuzztone guitar, distorted vibraphone, and nimble, scaling basswork.
Stark's vocals, which only come in occasionally, are of the psychedelic hillbilly variety, a monotoned parody of his Oklahoma accent singing of the months in the year, cooking, making friends, and on the highlight "Rocket Ship," a ride into space.
Those who know the majority of the album's songs from the CD will be surprised to find a brief punk song and two and a half minutes of silence on the album, but once you're used to them they make perfect sense and add immeasurably to the depth of the record. It's notable that amidst all of the despair here, both sides open with the most joyous songs you'll ever hear. Everyone reading this needs to hear both Trimble albums. After the departure of Summers and the acquisition of replacement Pete Gregory, the lineup remained until their breakup in Leader Jenkins who was also involved with the Chrysanthemums and Ruth's Refrigerator during the existence of his primary band continued afterwards in the Creams and the Thurston Lava Tube.
All of Deep Freeze Mice's records were released in small quantities through the band's labels, Mole Embalming and Cordelia. Labelisation in Separation in As much to say that the hour of glory of Fooz will particularly quickly have been passed… One dared more nothing to hope of this Spanish quartet after unexpected Split the day before their European roundwhich was judicious to support their first homonymous album left one year earlier at quite as Spanish label Alone Records.
And yet, inFooz is reproduced indeed on the list of the artists Alone Records. By which miracle? None… It is right which the group, undoubtedly corroded by the remord to have left its supporters on their hunger, had the idea to carry out a EP joining together 6 acoustic titles. The principal explanation to this phenomenon lies in the eclecticism of Fooz II, which ignites gradually and intermittently while opening and being completed by quiet accoustics, to leave place, the air of nothing, with interludes much more electric with the riffs more fuzzy and psychedelic, often marked by a rather strong tendency to space… jam, the whole is not without pointing out the style of Dutch feus 7zuma7, which them also gave in scrapes dries besides.
This pretty wafer, by its diversity, should fill as well the beginner as the amateur of space rock'n'roll. In 16 titles, it will completely summarize with the beginner the multiple variations which this musical style can take; while it will be satisfied to recall them to the amateur, under their best day which more is… Fooz ll - space is dark… it is so endless in three words: simple, planing, sinusoidal. Guitarist Jesus Acedo summons up inspiration from influences like the Grateful Dead, Captain Beefheart and John Fahey, leading his band through a series of fascinating, atmospheric compositions, all of which fall somewhere between the psychedelic and the mystic.
The instruments come at ya with these notes that look like peacock feathers, but feel more like whale bones when they hit. Its extraordinary qualities led Acedo to sign a five-year contract with England's Reckless Records, and in the label released "Black Sun Ensemble""Lambent Flame" and "Elemental Forces" These records were a critical and commercial success.
At the time, Offbeat exclaimed that BSE was "possibly, the world's coolest band. The second side was a magical suite of mostly acoustic pieces that presaged the extensive title track of the later "Sky Pilot" CD.
The inexorable weight of personnel changes, drugs and unexpected success eventually unbalanced Acedo's mental stability. He was diagnosed with schizophrenia in and spent the next two years in and out of local hospitals. This record was remixed and remastered in for Camera Obscura Records. The results were issued as "Sky Pilot" inwhich also included rare Black Sun singles tracks and a brand new minute work called "Sky Pilot Suite".
The Ensemble began playing regular gigs, impressing a whole new generation of listeners. News of Black Sun's return to the stage was appreciated by grunge-rock legend Mark Arm of Mudhoney, who engineered a shared performance at Tucson's Club Congress in early In FebruaryCamera Obscura reissued the debut Black Sun Ensemble recording fromagain to extraordinary reviews.
On the wave of recent success, Acedo has brought himself back from madness, poverty and potential obscurity. He is now recapturing his old fire by re-inventing himself, and is working to re-establish his rightful place as one of the key guitarists of our time. The release, celebrating the band's 20th anniversary, was met with excitement from fans all over the world. Public Nuisance - Gotta Survive Public Nuisance was, until the early s, unknown to all but the most fervent s garage rock fanatics, mostly for the very good reason that they never released a record.
It was reissued in by the french label New Rose. They reunited in In their website they're announcing a new record end of which apparently never came out. Their sound in this LP, although guitar-based, and having certainely psychedelic touches, could be described as "garage-with-brains", owing much to the Slickee Boys, who dominated the DC scene.
They play some streightforward rock tracks, garage-surf tunes as Brain WavesNuggets-like psychedelia Message from the Undergoundthey even play a Lennon song I found out.
They definitely know how to play their instruments, they have humor and, I'm sure, they were having fun, playing the music they like, without considering to be part of the one or the other genre.
I guess that's what underground is all about. Tritonus - - Between The Universes 1. Between the Universes 2. Mars Detection 3. Suburban Day Suite i. The Day Awakes ii. The Day Works iii. This one sounds more symphonic, spacey and grandiose. The keyboard-arrangements sounds quite good on the album, and there's still a slight Emerson-influence here.
The band had also added some choir-arrangements on the title-track and "The Day Works". The last mentioned track is the second part of the three-part suite "Suburban Day Suite" which takes up the whole second side of the album. The title-track has a very cosmic, almost religious spacey symphonic progressive rock sound to it, and the band managed to make a sound of their own here. Rotary Connection - - Peace.

Rotary Connection 's psychedelic chamber soul continues to sound ambitious and progressive decades after the group's departure. Instantly recognizable from the dramatic string arrangements of Charles Stepney and the five-octave voice of Minnie Ripertonthe group released six albums between and that combined rock, soul, and psychedelia to theatrical and occasionally transcendental heights.
Popular music was in the middle of the psychedelic era, and Marshall felt that the venerable Chess company needed something more progressive. He then combined a white rock group with black voices he had at Chess, mainly that of Minnie Riperton and Sidney Barnes, and brought in a talented classically trained arranger, Charles Stepney, to translate his ideas during production.
Marshall and his work with the Rotary Connection emphasized an ensemble sound, especially on their stunning debut album, so it was not until the group's second album, Aladdinthat one can hear a substantial lead by Riperton. Rotary Connection's most commercially successful album was their Christmas album, Peacein which the group managed to reproduce a Christmassy album that was also progressive and psychedelic.
With the Songs album, Rotary Connection not only uses Minnie as an alternate lead but also as an instrument, where her otherworldly trilling soars to stratospheric heights and is heard gloriously throughout each song. Riperton as a featured soloist greatly benefited from new developments in Rotary Connection's highly underrated fifth album, Dinner Musicin which guitarist Jon Stocklin came to the forefront as a compositional talent.
His songs brought new vigor to the band and gave Minnie some terrific original songs that showcased her as a lead vocalist. One of the most popular of the Rotary Connetion songs was a Stocklin standout, the hypnotic Want You To Know, which proved to be the group's most successful single, if success is the correct word for a song that reached only 96 and lasted only two weeks on the pop chart.
In Rotary Connection released their last album, Hey, Love, capturing the breezy Brazilian jazz-pop music of Sergio Mendes, who was a rage at that time. Downloand link. Mystery Poster has lit the hot fuse Peter Rowan and David Grisman were members of the group.
Earth Opera is a good example. The Boston-based group's self-titled debut LP featured a heady mixture of pop, rock, folk, jazz, and classical elements in involved arrangements played on such unusual instruments as mandocello and harpsichord. Rowan sang those lyrics, which dealt here and there with anti-war and more generalized sentiments of social dissatisfaction, in a distanced, somewhat artificial tone of voice, using an accent that sounded vaguely British, even when he was mentioning the Red Sox.
But he was rarely so specific, more often concerning himself with "the stage inside my mind" or "the picket fenceposts of your mind," internal landscapes in which wordplay and allusions substituted for specific meaning. It was a psychedelic language matched by the music, which hurried and slowed, making room for sudden solos and unexpected juxtapositions of instruments.
The result ultimately may have been too ornate and inaccessible for a pop recording, even inbut Earth Opera was very much of its time. To get serious, garage, no matter if it's first, second or fifth generation, if it's the original 60s' or the revivalist 80s' garage, is built on SONGS.
Not LPs or CDs, but songs. The garage legends are built on the little 7"s which the bands themselves in most cases put out. Don't get me wrong: I'm not against albums, I'm just talking exclusively for the garage bands, not for other genres.

Sea Horses Homecoming That Did It Crazy World Of Pod Season Bonus Judas Queen Bonus Mrs Browning Bonus Country Boy Bonus Your Father's Eye Bonus Ten Years Ago Bonus Kafkasque Bonus Boundsgreen Fair Bonus Were they simply a broken-hearted horde writing psychedelic love songs?
Were they galactic flyers in tune with astral days? Or were Freedom's Children just one of the best rock bands the world ever heard, or is it appropriate to say categorically that Freedom's Children were the best band the world never heard. An ironic suggestion, perhaps, but one with a lot of truth in it. That the circumstances surrounding their existence played against them does not detract from the fact that the original group formed in the year and in the world of music, the ground was breaking.
In contrast to the hit parade sounds of The Beatles, The Beach Boys and The Monkees, groups like The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane and Pink Floyd were producing albums marked by their experimental creativity and music styles termed acid rock or astral music.
InRamsay Mackay and Colin Pratley had teamed up in Durban to experiment with their music ideas. Their sound was acid-astral rock. South Africans had not been prepared for this group. The group created controversy and newspaper headlines, in every small South African town they performed at. Some towns banned them. But to those who understood quality rock, Freedom's Children provided their break with conventional thinking and music ideas.
The group travelled to England but, perhaps for the reason that the group was from South Africa, and the politics of apartheid swayed opinion, the musicians were refused work permits and so their dream of attracting world acclaim faded. While the group returned to South Africa disillusioned, began work on the recording of the 'Astra' album.
The album provided the magic of a classic rock album. There were dramatic climaxes, socio-philosophical lyrics, hard, pulsating rhythms, blistering lead guitar solos, sense-riveting sound-effects and soaring vocals.
Ramsay Mackay left the group after the recording of 'Astra' and it was Julian Laxton who drove the band on their last album, 'Galactic Vibes', and where the music on it was still devastatingly good, the aura of 'Astra' had dissipated. But if the world of South Africa had been perfect, and had Freedom's Children achieved their breakthrough in England, one can only speculate how difficult the success of this group would have been.
The world would have heard some good creative music.

There's much interesting information relating to this LP project, the artists involved and obviously the cover itself across two pages of ' Best Album Covers,' including this quote from Michael English concerning 'The Intention': "If I use the words that are current now - and they weren't the words we used then, but the meaning is the same - it was to do with putting out a good energy of love and power and light and colour and peace, and turn the whole planet into a radiant ball of good energy.
We wanted to communicate that good energy, spread it out, and make contact with new beings, so that in a way, the whole universe would be pulsating with this energy - which it is anyway, as we know. That thinking was so revolutionary, so incredible, and it was virtually ignored by the established fine art world, which continued its fascination with Pop art, and Situationist art.
They didn't want to hear about what we were talking about because it was dangerous, it undermined their system. Stunning power trio! Contains 3 bonus tracks too! This is an Album) item for anyone visiting this site!
A genuine masterpiece. Up there with Caravan's third album, King Crimson's first and Fantasy's second, this is amazing progressive rock with killer guitar work, vocal harmonies, orchestration, etc. Not a duff song and an album to explore over and over again. Originals of this sole release by T2 from the early '70s are worth a fortune brilliant early '70s UK prog album.
They soon found a strong musical rapport and, after less than a week of rehearsals, they started a residency at a club in London's West End. By their third gig, the club was packed, and the producers from four major record companies and three TV and Radio programmes were there to check them out. Their rise continued throughout the year, with appearances at several important open-air festivals, including the Isle of Wight and Plumpton.
They headlined a series of residencies at the Marquee Club, and appeared at virtually every major rock venue in the London area before branching out onto the university circuit. They were constantly in the music press - indeed Keith, still only seventeen, was being hailed as the new Eric Clapton! In the end, the pressures grew too great and first Keith and then Bernard left the band.
After a short break, Peter put the band back on the road with new musicians, and T2 toured the UK continuously throughout and Finally, a settled line-up was achieved - including Mike Foster, who had been a friend of the band since the early lays. However, the UK music scene had changed considerably by then. The band found that to resume their recording career, they would have to compromise their musical policy.
