My only previous contact with Dr Brown was with 'Freakbeat', a fine track they contributed to the ' Psychedelic Psauna ' compiliation.
With its improvised sonic lunacy and very bassy groove, it sounds like it's being transmitted live from some deep underground festival. I never managed to track down any more of their output, but thanks to Kev, ex-singer with Dr Brown, I acquired this album a couple of months ago and it's been on heavy rotation ever since.
For fans of bluesy lysergic 70s festival rock, you really can't go wrong. There's various styles on offer, from the full-on boogie of 'Big Red Ford Capri' to the Hawkwind-esque space-rock of 'Magic Cat', from the folk-reggae of 'Celebrate the World of Dreams' to 'Faithless' which, strangely enough when considering the sound on the rest of the album, is vaguely reminiscent of 'Big City' period Spacemen 3.
Highly recommended, a thoroughly enjoyable album. Insecurity 2. Magic Cat 3. The Oak 4. Ought To Tell Her 5. Live To Die 6. Big Red Ford Capri 7. Faithless 8. Unchained 9. Celebrate the World of Dreams Get it here. Posted by Herod at 9 comments. Boris comes across as a psychedelic novelty act, and falls somewhere between Gong's lunatic babbling and an acid-fried piss-take.
Though this approach works well on 'Toadstool Soup', a mind-bending ditty about the pleasures and pains of magic mushrooms, it doesn't work quite so well elsewhere. Throw in some zany songs with serious messages, a couple of forgettable Hendrix covers, some accomplished musicianship and lots of weird and wonderful sound effects and what we have is an album that is mildly enjoyable but ultimately disposable.
I'm sure some will enjoy Boris' unique brand of psychedelic lunacy, but me? I just didn't quite get it. Toadstool Soup 2. Onward Christian Soldiers 3. Purple Haze 4. Burnin' With The Fire 5. Blacklisted Blues 6. Voodoo Chile Slight Return 7. Moonsong 8. Goin' Nowhere 9. Psychic Revolution Sunsong Get some mushroom soup here. Posted by Herod at 10 comments. Turn the lights down low, crank up the strobe light, the lava lamp and a jazz cigarette and let the sounds of Praise Space Electric soothe your soul.
This is the 2nd album from Bristol's finest space explorers, released on Delerium records in , and provides another welcome dose of funky, jazzy, spaced-out grooves. The influences come from all over the place - lounge, space-rock, psych, funk, dub, dance, soul, jazz noodlings, ethnic experimentations, spacey electronica It's more focused than their debut album which, although worthy of a place in any space-head's music collection, is basically a few days jamming released as a mini album 'nothing wrong with that' I hear you say Blissed-out psychedelic soul music of the highest order.
Doc's Groove 2. Sinnerman 3. Rhythm Rhythm 4. Singing The Same Song 5. Diggin' At The Dig In 6. Freedom 7. Waves Of Joy 9. Drain Your Wobbles Away Cybergenetic Experiment X Pebbles Feel the love here.
One of the best gigs I ever had the pleasure of freaking out at was Loop at the Roadmender in Northampton in the late 80s. These guys played hard psychedelic drone rock like their lives depended on it and to hear them live was to plummet headfirst into the sun at a thousand miles an hour.
Repetition was the name of the game, monster riffs and searing acid guitars spiralling off into infinity, their dedication to the one-chord ethic unswerving and relentless. What we have here is their EP 'Collision', 4 tracks of blistering, swirling, hypnotic guitars, pumping basslines and mesmeric drumming.
Volume on max or consider yourself banned from this blog. Collision 2. Crawling Heart 3. Thief of Fire 4. Thief Motherfucker Freak out here. Posted by Herod at 1 comments. I'm not sure if it's extremely hard or ridiculously easy to get a genuine sounding production, but whatever, the Watch Children have it nailed, this could easily have been recorded back in the day.
BTW, this release marks a first for this blog - the music is not taken from my own collection. Yes, I hang my head in shame. But as I've been asked a couple of times if I have it, I thought I'd post the copy I grabbed a while ago. Where did I get it from? Some blog or P2P network, I honestly can't remember. So, until the original uploader contacts me with a 'how dare you! Still, it got our pictures in DJ magazine Terminal Blues was a trad.
For about a year in the mid nineties Dr Brown disbanded and I played in festi dub band Heliotrope. Weirdest gig we ever played was a witches pub in Crawley, near Oxford, UK. It had a pagan witch landlady, broadswords on the walls, was lit entirely by huge candles, and had a floor covered with two inches of sawdust. Slept in the pub after one gig. Woke the next morning to find a huge shire horse wandering inside the pub amongst our equipment. It didn't faze the bar staff who said it came in all the time, fed it some hay and it walked out!
AI: Are the Ozrics a big influence? I hear a lot of similarities. Kev: I think it is closer to say our influences are the same as inspired the Ozrics in the early years: Gong, Hawkwind, Krautrock etc. AI: There have been a few instances where I've heard [other] bands referred to as having former members of Dr.
Brown in their line-ups. Do you have a lot of coming and going of members involved in various projects? Kev: Yes! I am the John Mayall of British Psychedelia! How did that come about? Did he play on any of your releases other than Dreamscape? Perform much with Dr. Kev: When our guitarist player left, we had just introduced Simon from Mandragora to his bass player Alan Jenkins and he returned the favour by introducing us to Hughy.
Only recorded the one EP with him, but played numerous gigs including some gigs in Belgium and a tour of Italy. Did Italian tour in rusting van. The starter motor packed up before we got on the ferry, had to push it to start it every time!
Played a squat in Naples where they'd dug into the road and connected up to the national grid via a couple of large wires. The venue was a derelict car park where the furniture, bar and stage were made from broken bottles and cement. Still, we did a storming set and got payed. The alternator bolts all snapped off while traveling through The Black Forest in Germany on the way home. Pulled up in a lay by, miles from the nearest town, no phone and the alternator just held on by the wires.
Suddenly drummer Rick shot off round the car park with a spanner. He'd noticed that the trusty Germans had built their roadside trash bins with 14mm nuts bolts and washers, just the right size for our alternator.
