Forget the Pop band, One of the most original albums ever,
By A Customer
This review is from: Chapter III Vol 1 (Audio CD)
Recorded in 1969 this album drips with menance.Mike Hugg sounds like he has never slept in his life as he sings his way through the doom laden tracks backed by organ, bass, drums and assorted brass. The songs are simple but it is the BIG brass sound that makes the music exceptional especially when the structure completely falls apart, in the middle of a tune, into a sprawling avant garde of honks, & squeals, which, after dying down the tune slowly grinds it's way back to the fore again. Totally bizzare and when played loud is better than a work out at the gym and more refreshing than a good cup of Earl Grey.
