Thunderpussy - Documents of Captivity 1973 (hard prog)

This is the work of a hard rock/progressive trio from Quincy in South Illinois. The album came with a lyric sheet and originals are sought-after. Morris later embarked on a solo career.
Nice (occasionally) hard-rockin prog stuff with lotsa harmonies (guitar and vocals both) that should appeal to fans of Wishbone Ash or King's X. Production is excellent, surpriisingly enough for a self-pressed recording of this vintage, yer basic power trio augmented by tinges of flute, acoustic guitar, percussibles and supposedly synthesizer, tho I'll be darned if I can hear any. Too bad about the extended flute bits: The most boring instrument in existence, an instrument which only Eric Dolphy and Roland Kirk and hardly anyone else ever could coax semi-captivating sounds out of, has no business being on a hard rock LP! (Damn you, Ian Anderson!) Couldn't they have compromised and just borrowed an unpredictable Mellotron?
Oh, yeah: song titles are utterly baffling, with each of the six tracks or "documents" ("Document Of Enigma", "Document Of Latent Summation", etc.) endowed with TWO titles; one for the "song" part of the song ("Scream Inside" and "Observation Of Us" being a couple); and, just like on the Black Sabbath and King Crimson LPs these guys no doubt hoarded, a seperate title for the "Instrumentation" (such as "The Battle", "The Pursuit" and - no shit - "The Then" !) A total of 18 titles for 6 songs. Madness - and don't even ask me about the lyrics.
With a cover that looks like it should be on a cheesy early/mid 80¡¦s metal band¡¦s album rather than a progressive rock lp, this Illinois trio released an lp that is as remote (about a thousand officially pressed) as it is valuable, and is a strange bird to boot. It hasn¡¦t spent much time in my stereo, and whether it¡¦s any good depends on how progressive you like your rock. If anything, Thunderpussy have many fond moments.
The album isn¡¦t at all contrived and is quite experimental at times, and really doesn¡¦t pack the wallop I was hoping for, but is quite the endeavor nonetheless. I have also just learned that it is a concept lp (apparently about a poem). Their titles are off-kilter, having seemingly three parts to every song, most of which travel beyond the five-minute mark, but that¡¦s progressive rock for ya. Piano, acoustics, harmonized vocals, flute, and I believe even triangle are rudiments to the cause, and most of them can be heard on initial track ¡§Document of Enigma/Scream Inside Instrumentation/Eden to Now¡¨ (what¡¦d I tell ya). All verses are harmonized with scrubbed mid-high tones and sometimes the guitar pitch sounds like it had been mistakenly sped up during the recording. This seamlessly leads into ¡§Document of Validation/Observation of Us Instrumentation/The Slave and the Duke¡¨, and you wouldn¡¦t even know it was a new song if the track number hadn¡¦t changed. In spurts, the accelerator is leaned on a bit more in this track and very Jethro Tull-ish flute flourishes toot through. Or does that happen in track three? ¡§Documents of Inquiry/To Be Real Instrumentation/The Curious Child¡¨ and ¡§Document of Security/Moonlight Ladies Instrumentation/The Pursuit¡¨ are two of the best with lots of appealing rhythms shifting from dynamic and heavy to subtle and delicate. ¡§Documents of Latent Summation/In the Forest Instrumentation/The Then¡¨ interludes with serene acoustics, then outbreaks with some of the lp¡¦s most bombastic moments. That does it for the original lp, but like usual we have bonus tracks for the disc. ¡§Stone Free¡¨ and the overlong ¡§Eleanor Rigby¡¨ (which I have on an odd yellow octagonal record) are obviously covers, while ¡§Warriors¡¨ is the recipient of a strong, roaming riff and the acoustic n¡¦ flute introed ¡§Lucifer¡¨ saunters along similarly with a few more lengthier solos.
What¡¦s great about reviewing music is that you have to (or should) listen with a heavier ear to pick out nuances and possible hidden influences. Ten tracks later, I¡¦ve found this lp to be even more durable than before, and I don¡¦t think too many people into progressive rock will be disappointed.
Legit reissue of the lone album from 1973 by this Illinois progressive psych band, long a staple of the collecto-scumbag private pressing universe (previously booted on LP). A beautifully dated suite of songs with deep, poetic musings on the nature of good vs. evil, class inequalities and other meaningless subjects, this mixes fragile acoustic interludes with classic guitar heaviness, traditional prog-rock time craziness and general higher elevation musical themes. Idiotic, and enthusiastically so (beware the new & ugly fantasy-cringe cover art).

Bloodrock - ST 1969 (hard rock)

From Fort Worth, Texas, this band evolved out of Crowd + 1 and desite quite a prolific output, met with little success. Probably their best known track is D.O.A. from their second album, which is a heavy organ-based threatening piece with police sirens, and is very much in the anti-war, anti-space race, anti-everything vein of the era. Another notable cut Breach Of Lease off their third album is intense, starting slowly and building up to an amazingly heavy climax. The live version is also particularly hot, whilst the humorous Melvin Laid An Egg from the debut is another musical high point.
Actually, Cobb didn't play on the debut album; Rutledge played drums on it and early on, John Nitzinger too was considered (somewhat) a member of the band and wrote or co-wrote many of the songs.
After the live album, Rutledge and Pickens left and Warren Ham joined as a vocalist and woodwind player for the last two albums. For their final album (Whirlwind Tongues), Cobb left and was replaced by drummer Randy Reeder who had previously played in John Nitzinger's band and later played with a group called Alexis. Warren Ham later went on to form the Ham Brothers and released an album as such in 1977. Later still, he went on to play in former Kansas guitarist/keyboardist Kerry Livgren's Christian rock group AD for, we believe, two LPs - Time Line and Art Of The State. In the eighties Warren was also in Black Rose.
Producer Terry Knight was involved in the first three albums after which the band did the production themselves or co-produced (Peter Granet and Ed Grundy on the last two LPs; with John Palladino on USA).

Instant Orange - Instant Orange 1973

NSTANT ORANGE - Same, USA 1973 (SHADOKS 091) LP 450 numbered / glossy heavy GATEFOLD sleeve / 180 gram pressing / insert Besides home to the Hells Angels, farmers and citrus grooves, San Bernardino, California was also where Instant Orange lived and released their first single in 1968. The band forged ahead and released another single (1973), album (1973) and two ten inch eps (1974 & 1975). All of their releases were small pressings of 100 copies and to this day, Instant Orange remains virtually unknown. Their homemade sound is a refreshing reflection of their west coast folk-rock influences that were so prevalent during the sixties and early seventies. All original tracks with inspiration from bands like the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Love, Sandy Bull and others. Songs full of electric and acoustic guitars with nice doses of McGuinnesque 12 string riffing as well as many unsuspecting surprises (antiquated electronic effects, rambling rural explorations, long jams, experimental moves, stoner banter and other weirdness between songs, caveman fuzz, etc). A solid listen with enough original imagination to keep it interesting without the band creating an identity crisis by trying too hard to be something else than themselves. Here it all on this limited double album, but grab it before it becomes elusive like some of San Bernardino's motorcycle riding inhabitants. TERRY WALTERS, RANDY LANIER & LYNN McCURDY are INSTANT ORANGE with the help of Joe Bianchi & Bob Lautz.
