Rock On! Wednesday, 16 September – Doremi Fasol Latido (Hawkwind, Nektar, Blue Oyster Cult, UFO)

Psychedelic, heavy, prog and more innovating sounds spanning the late 60s and the early 70s – Wednesday August 12th. Dan’s pick of the week: Hawkwind (Doremi Fasol Latido), Nektar (A Tab In The Ocean), The Deviants (Ptooff!), UFO (Flying – One Hour Space Rock) & Blue Oyster Cult (Blue Oyster Cult).

Hawkwind kan beschouwd worden als één van de grondleggers van de spacerock. Spacerock is volgens Wikipedia “een genre dat wordt gekenmerkt door losse en lange songstructuren met als middelpunt instrumentale texturen die typisch een hypnotiserend, buitenaards geluid produceren”. Smullen dus…

Hoppoman van Sputnik Music: “The feel to Doremi is much different to Hawkwind’s previous outings. ‘Brainstorm’ starts out with a rumbling bass line that sounds like it could be a distorted guitar. Moments later the drums kick in with a brilliant pace and style that keeps up for the entire opening song.… Read more...

Rock On! Wednesday, 2 September – Every Good Boy Deserves Favour (Moody Blues, Affinity, Paul McCartney, Aardvark)

Psychedelic, heavy, prog and more innovating sounds spanning the late 60s and the early 70s – Wednesday, 2 September. Dan’s pick of the week: Moody Blues (Every Good Boy Deserves Favour), Affinity (Affinity), Paul McCartney (Ram), Aardvark (Aardvark) & Majority One (Rainbow Rockin Chair).

Moody Blues is een Britse band die in de jaren zestig enkele grote hits had met nummers als Go Now!, Nights in White Satin (meermaals), Tuesday Afternoon en Ride My See-Saw. Ook later scoorden ze nog enkele hits.

Markwin Meeuws van Prog Wereld: “Anno 1971 was The Moody Blues inmiddels zo groot, dat ze het zich konden veroorloven een plaat uit te brengen welke niet vooraf werd gegaan door een single. Maar in plaats verwaand en verwend te klinken, maakt “Every Good Boy Deserves Favour” duidelijk dat The Moody Blues dan eindelijk volwassen is geworden.… Read more...

Rock On! Wednesday, 26 august – All Together Now (Argent, ELO, Russ Ballard, Pearls Before Swine)

Psychedelic, heavy, prog and more innovating sounds spanning the late 60s and the early 70s – Wednesday August 12th.

Argent is het verhaal van toetsenist Rod Argent die eind jaren ’zestig, The Zombies verlaat en een naar zichzelf vernoemde band oprichtte. Op de eerste vier albums had hij een vaste groep om zich heen, bestaande uit Russ Ballard, Robert Henrit en Jim Rodford

Prog Archives review: “Argent came of age with this album, thanks in no small part to the huge hit single “Hold your head up”.… Read more...

Rock On! Wednesday, 12 august – Anyway (Family, Traffic, Cream, Spooky Tooth)

Psychedelic, heavy, prog and more innovating sounds spanning the late 60s and the early 70s – Wednesday August 12th. Dan’s pick of the week: Family (Anyway), Traffic (The Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys), Cream (Live Cream Vol. 1), Ten Years After (Cricklewood Green), Groundhogs (Thank Christ For The Bomb) & Spooky Tooth (Spooky Two).

Family was een van de grootste en meest originele Britse rockgroepen van de late jaren ’60, begin jaren ’70. Toch zijn ze voor het grootste deel vergeten nooit het respect gekregen dat ze verdienden. Bij deze willen we dat hier rechtzetten…

Dave Furgess van Head Heritage: “Those who witnessed Family live were simply awestruck by the group’s manic intensity of which Chapman was clearly the focal point. Side one of “Anyway” is a full side of then new material recorded live in Croydon.… Read more...
