VINCENT CRANE B – DAY, ATOMIC ROOSTER PODCAST : DEATH WALKS BEHIND YOU / CAN’T FIND A REASON / NEVER TO LOSE etc

Σαν σήμερα, 21 Μαΐου 1943 γεννήθηκε ο οργανίστας / συνθέτης Vincent Crane, γνωστός για τη συμετοχή του στους Crazy World Of Arthur Brown [συν-συνθέτης του κλασικού “Fire”] και, κυρίως, ως εγκέφαλος των Atomic Rooster, συγκρότημα που δημιούργησε το 1969 με τον επίσης ex-Arthur Brown, Carl Palmer. Ο τελευταίος θα έφευγε μετά το πρώτο άλμπουμ για να συμμετάσχει στους ELP.
Οι
Atomic Rooster έγραψαν τη δική τους σελίδα ιστορίας στο βρετανικό ’70s ροκ, με μια prog-χωρίς-εξτραβαβαγκάντσες προσέγγιση στα blues. Peak της καριέρας τους είναι τα άλμπουμ Made In England και Nice ‘n Greasy, με τη συμμετοχή του κολοσιαίου τραγουδιστή Chris Farlowe.
Ακούμε τραγούδια από τα άλμπουμ τους Death Walks Behind You [1971], In Hearing Of [1971], Made In England [1972], Nice ‘n’ Greasy [1973]

On this date, May 21, 1943, the keyboardist / composer Vincent Crane was born. He is known for his participation in The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown [co-writter of the classic “Fire”] and, most importantly, as a mastermind of Atomic Rooster, a band he formed in 1969 with the also ex-Arthur Brown, Carl Palmer. The latter would leave after the first album, to join ELP. Atomic Rooster wrote their own page in British ’70s rock, with a non extravagant progressive approach to the blues. They reach their artistic peak on the albums Made In England and Nice ‘n’ Greasy, with the participation of the colossal singer Chris Farlowe.
So here’s a handful of songs from their albums Death Walks Behind You [1971], In Hearing Of [1971], Made In England [1972], Nice ‘n’ Greasy [1973]

    Very enjoyable!
    I had forgotten about Atomic Rooster, which I liked.
    On another note:
    Hahaha… Arthur Brown’s Fire is a riot! The various videos are so much fun. I had to have a peek after listening to this podcast.
