Modry Efekt, also known as M. Freso left soon after to re-join Collegium Musicum and later Fermata. Another thing that reminds of Focus is the weird flute playing and voices through the flute. There are definite traces of jazz-rock to be found, which greatly add to thequality and tension in this disc.
They recorded with female singer Gal Costa. The album originally housed in a triple fold out cover has been reissued several times some illegally - not all of these in good quality, so be warned! This Spanish band was formed in Madrid in by Pepe Robles and with what seems to have been a hiatus of a few years they have been active throughout the whole decade. Their first three singles became hits, but the real impact on the progressive scene was with the debut album.
The band did some singles and two more LPs before disappearing. Dieter Moebius started his solo-career later than his Clustercolleague Roedelius, but when he did it turned out that he was definitely the weirder part at least musicallylike the experiments with rhythms, strange sounds and tape effects on his solo-debut, in fact a collaboration with Konrad Plank and also featuring Holger Czukay on bass, prove. Most records are available on CD. He also had a solo project, named after the space rock legend - partly probably for commercial reasons, but also because he became the leader of this group at some point.
After this a live album was released with no publicity at all from Arista Records. After this the group kind of disappeared from the scene. Alex Sanguinetti drums and Simon Pomara percussion. From this period also a live album was released ten years later, presenting a line-up of the Moerlens, Rowe, Zieden and Traub.
After this another long period of silence occurred. This time Pierre was supported by an all new band of Russian musicians: Arkady Kuznetsov electric guitarsAlexei Pleschunov bassMeehall Ogrodov keys, hand drum, percussion, recorder, underwater voice and guest Alexander Lutsky on muted trumpet.
Pierre died unexpectedly on 2 May in his home at Strasbourg, France. Gong playing space rock? Not on this album! Pretty cool jazz-rock with a rather dominant violin at times reminding a bit of Ponty and the busy percussive work from the Moerlens. Taking the average of these two: Great instrumental music, not too heavy with good play from Pierre on all kinds of percussive instruments and vibraphone. AR CD Australian psych-prog band. They played s influenced symphonic prog.
The band was founded by former Colosseum-guitarist Litherland. In the early days Ed Bricknell later manager of Dire Straits was the band s drummer, but he was replaced by Harrison formerly of Glass Menagerie. In June ofthe band recorded their debut, produced by Eddie Offord Yes, Pallas and Brian Auger, who also played piano on one track. The album was recorded very quickly without really having written songs before, so they were like improvisations arranged later.
Three months after the album was recorded, the band entered the studio again to record a single a-side non-album"Sleeping in the kitchen". This single became surprisingly a hit in Belgium of all places thanks to good airplay on Radio Luxemburg. Mogul Trash even did a session for Belgium TV.
The LP was released in spring of When the band dissolved, Ball and Duncan went to Average White Band with which they became very successful. For the LP the band had to edit most tracks to shorter versions in order to fit to LP-length. For the Disconforme CD version, the band went back to the original tapes and released several versions as they were originally intended. In the course of the s and s Mogwai grew to become one of the best-known and most acclaimed postrock groups around.
Stuart and Dominic first added their school friend Bulloch and after a few shows the band was completed with guitarist Cummings and during the recordings of their first album Teenage Fanclub drummer Brendan O Hare joined them, only to bail out again immediately after the release. He had already played some live shows with the band as a flautist and as an occasional pianist.
Mogwai s tracks have been used extensively in the media and a number of tracks appear in film, television and video game soundtracks. In early this experience was planned for a DVD release. In a new CD with spoken word was recorded - quite extraordinary for an instrumental group. But no, the album presents them as a very good and at times dreamy post-rock group that knowns how to write fine tracks. It is an electronic spacey progressive project led by Bruce White guitars, synths, bass.
Compared to the Ozrics, Mohodisco is less psychedelic; he uses more ambient spacey synth sounds. Where Quarkspace sometimes loose themselves in endless jamming, Mohodisco keeps the songs compact. Add some violin and didgeridoo to give it some extra touch. A pleasant album to listen to and with a great flow. The only advice I would give to Mr. White is to change the name Mohodisco. CD This group from Caracas, Venezuela had a varied sound incorporating vintage prog, pop, progmetal and hard rock with vocals in both English and Spanish.
The album had artwork by Hugh Syme and was recorded with help from German Landaeta Tempano, doing the mixing and masteringJames Murphy guitars and Julio Andrade sax. The title of the CD mentioned below is an educated guess. The information on the cover is slightly confusing. The fourth track includes some throat singing by three members, so be warned!
The LP is extremely rare. Together with Ange they characterized a typical theatrical French style of symphonic progressive rock and influenced many other French groups. Francis Poulet became the singer and keyboardist Jean-Pierre Pierson picked up the guitar, which he had played in the early days of the band. Newcomers were Michel Grandet keys and Patrick Moriniere drums. They started recording demos for a sixth studio LP, but the band fell apart and disbanded in December due to lack of a record deal and the fact that Poulet left the band after recording the demos.
AR CD, The opener delivers some great symphonic prog and has one major plus: Alas the next track quickly introduces the typical theatrical French vocals in Ange style and as you may know these are a MAJOR put off for me. Which is a shame, because the instrumental work and music in general is splendid symphonic prog with occasional references to or influences from Genesis.
So mixed feelings for me and a full recommendation if you like Ange and alike groups. AR CD,including bonus tracks: The 9 compositions contain a spirit of the s, mainly because of the keyboards Hammond organ, Mellotron and Elka string ensemble. Although this CD sounds a bit inaccessible for the those who are not fond of the typical Ange inspired music I m pleased that Musea still believes that good music is more important than big money!
Absolutely fabulous with most songs crossing the 6 minute border. And even the French vocals are pretty good, even when they get slightly emotional at times. This is exactly the thing I hate with many French bands. The music on this live album has not changed much from the early days, some of the songs sound a bit more modern because they are played on better instruments.
But the theatrical music with references of Genesis have stayed. According to the pictures inside of the booklet, the band still changes costumes during their live shows. It can not be heard on the CD, therefore they also released a video from the same live performance. I had expected a far better live show with even better progressive rock music.

I certainly did like their music back in the s because I even bought two of their albums in those days. The songs, which I heard on the live album, were okay but it did not have the power, which bands in the same style had in the s. Bands such as Ange and Genesis, acts that also used a lot of drama and costumes.
Don t get me wrong, the band did not really play a weak songs but it all sounded too dated. Lead singer Dominique Le Guennec tries very hard to entertain the audience with all his costume changes. It really looks as if the crowd enjoyed his performance, but you probably had to be at the concert. It did not do much for me when I watched this much too short impression of their live show. But I certainly believe that a lot of progheads still might enjoy this DVD.
Most of all people who enjoy some costume changes, singing in the French language and music that is related to a band such as Ange. Unfortunately I have seen it all before and better. The band was originally formed the backing band of former Move member Carl Wayne. Other members at that point included Bob Brady piano, vocalsRoger Hill guitars, vocals and Charlie Grima percussion, congas, vocals. After a few weeks of rehearsing Carl Wayne was doing more sessions and jingles and he became more and more tied up with solo work which included cabaret residencies in London.
So the rest of the band went on without Wayne and adopted the name Mongrel. They were offered a deal by Polydor record and recorded their album after which the band fell apart.
The remaining members struggled on in varying line-ups untilbut then the final curtain fell. There he won the Raymond Russel Harpsichord prize. After this he formed Curved Air together with Darryl Way. Later he left this group to join guitarist John Williams to form the successful symphonic group Sky.
Besides this he also pursued in solo career, both in contemporary, electronic like his album with drummer Barry de Souza and bassist Mo Foster and classical music. The latter would be the returning female singer for Monkman s solo work. In the s he teamed up with his old buddy Way again in the classical Elektra Ensemble.

Their album was produced by Steve Albini. It may even be the same band as the one mentioned below as Monolith 2. He had no other musicians yet, but a friend suggested to see a band which were friends of his. During that concert, Bill was introduced to drummer Ron Matlia, who was interested in forming an original project and also turned out to have similar musical preferences. So they exchanged phone numbers and Bill gave Ron a demo tape of the keyboard parts.
When they first rehearsed together, Bill was impressed the way his music sounded with a good drummer playing the right parts. As things progressed, Bill and Ron realized, that they needed a vocalist and Ron suggested to take Gordon Winfield of his now former - club band.
Seeing Gordon perform live, Bill knew that he was just the right man for the job. They booked a studio, recorded the music they had written and started shopping the demo-tape.
Thus things became low profile, although Bill continued to write his music and trying to get his - now more commercially oriented, inspired by the success of Asia progressive rock released. Still no record company was interested in the more radio-friendly music.HORSLIPS Happy To Meet ... Sorry To Part (1 - 2 - 3 - 4 )
The next year, Bill set up his own Monolith-internet website and received much e-mail from people interested in the music. As a result of this, raving reviews appeared. Encouraged by this, Bill sent out some demos to possible record companies and his first choice - Musea - showed much interest in distributing the album. So Bill financed the recording and production of the first CD all by himself and in April finally the album was released for Bill a life-long dream come true to much critical acclaim.
Depending on the reactions and sales of the debut, there may be a follow-up album enough material is available already and possibly even live performances. Recommended to those who miss ELP and those who like to hear Wakeman in a rock context. The first with Albert Griemann electronics guesting.
