Format:Audio CD
A typical existential story from Moorcock set in a fair ground in the embers of a dying world & decadent society. The story of a young niaive mans (mis)adventures set to a gothic backdrop. Backed by members of Hawkwind, Moorcock has produced an album of classic seventies folk-rock, interspersed with dialogue to help move the story along and tie it all together. It's re-release has been long overdue!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Pace! 20 Sep 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've seen Moorcock read (Waterstones), I've seen him act (Asylum) and now I've heard him sing! He has a great Irish-sounding voice that can do folk-rock, rock and roll, psychedelic and blues, and this album is really a mix of them all -- to make something as original as Moorcock's fiction or comic books. Yet the best track is the last, originally a single done some time after this album. The Brothel In Rosenstrasse is minimalist and far more in keeping with the progressive rock elements also detected in this album. It's a superb song performed by Moorcock and his long-time writing partner Pete Pavli (High Tide, Third Ear Band, Deep Fix) with a subtler, simpler production and the sardonic quality New Romantics aimed for and didn't often get. Worth it for that track alone. There's also a couple of great belters that demonstrate Moorcock's blues rock roots Sixteen Year Old Doom and Last Merry Go Round. Almost a Bowie feel to some of the tracks, which might not be surprising since both came out of South London around the same time, knew Lindsay Kemp & Co, and did similar apprenticeships. For all Moorcock's close association with Hawkwind and Blue Oyster Cult, there is very little evidence here. The roots of the music are firmly in the work of Moorcock's original idols, Guthrie and Leadbelly, but being Moorcock they can't help sound just that little bit strange...

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting album 5 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Pretty good album in its own right, an interesting concept (a sinister fun fair with parallels to a failing society, I think?) nicely carried by Moorcock's remarkable voice. Of interest to Hawkwind fans due to Moorcock's involvement with the band, and to the input of several Hawkwind members on several tracks. However, this does not turn it into a hawks side project, the Deep Fix sound is entirely different, kind of 70's folk rock, fairly light, sometimes almost Lennon-ish in places. Overall it's a reasonable album, but I feel it's not as strong as it could be

3.0 out of 5 stars Too many cooks 13 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
An album of variable quality

Three featured composers but it's Michael Moorcock himself who shines

His songs are all memorable, full of striking lyrical imagery with some decemt melodies to accompany them

The others fluctuate wildly with some hits and misses
