Quizzer

First UK studio to have a proper 16 track multitrack machine installed.
And first band to use it.


Re: Quizzer

No one?

No one here can tackle this?

Wallace knows.
Wallace is The Man.




Trident studios in fall of 1969.
Van Der Graaf Generator "After The Flood' (from the album The Least We Can Do Is Wave To Each Other) was the first piece of music recorded at this studio on 16 tracks in December of that year.

(Abbey Road could not hold a candle to Trident.)

Re: Quizzer

How about this one:


FIRST LP TO FEATURE MOOG MAN AS ACTUAL BAND MEMBER

Well?

Wallace gots an idea.
You will never guess.


Okay, before you shoot off, three stipulations:

1/ first ROCK band

2/ keyboard man predominantly (or ONLY) plays the moog

3/ no one-offs or single track from lp which features moog
(So, something like Monkees "Daily Nightly" doesn't count.)

Re: Quizzer

Please read carefully.

I said "band member", so you cannot bring up Walter Carlos or, say ,Mort Garson ('68)

Re: Quizzer

Re: Quizzer

Okay. We let that one go.

(No one wants to venture an answer/ no one cares.)


.................

Last week digging Yours Truely was excited to find this real psychy looking lp ,The Electric Underground "Guitar Explosion" from '67.
The track titles ("Psychedelic Snow", etc.) all suggested farout trips man! and origional material. The coverart, as you can see here is highly psych as well:

Wallace noticed it was a budget label and this most certainly meant the magic word, "exploito". Some of you here might be aware that Princiepoos actively searchs out Butt like this.

But this was to prove to be exploito of the worst order.

The cover and vinyl were moldy.
Wallace cleaned both, laminated the cover (so as to somehow contain the smell) and the vinyl cleaned up perfect.
Then Wallace played....

Feck!
The cockers! This is old-hipster dude jazzbo surf instrumental! Dated as all heck.
What a letdown.

Later Wallace learned this is a repackaging of Don & Eddie "Rock & Roll Party" lp (which itself is probably a misnomer as well).

This is the worse example of cack dressed-up as psych this side of the Atlantic.






The question is this:

Whats the most atrocious, unpardonable "psych" ripoff to come from UK?
A lp with psychy art & title that promises Pussay but delivers a sackfull of old rotten cockk instead.

Re: Quizzer

Is it Moogy Kinsman from Utopia? closest answer I could find..

Re: Quizzer

Wots the year?

Re: Quizzer

1973

Re: Quizzer

No.


Robert Moog invented the synth somewhere in middle America - I think Illinois, but I'm not looking it up.
So you'd think the earliest band to get a synth would be American or Canadian.

Yet, surprizingly enough, the band I'm thinking of is UK!

Here is a big clue: band was also first to do a rock opera and likely first to use phasing.

Re: Quizzer

Quizzer:

wot famous rock star did Phil Collins pay the liver transplant costs for?

Re: Quizzer

Re: Quizzer

Re: Quizzer

Re: Quizzer

The pretty things.

Re: Quizzer

Pretty Things used moog???


(And, no, SFSORROW isn't the first rock opera.)

Re: Quizzer

Wot did Elizabeth I, one of the Pharohs - I forget which-, and Glascock of Jethro Tull have in common?

Re: Quizzer

First moog in band-Graham Bond Organisation?

Re: Quizzer

You are confusing the Moog with the mellotron.


Graham Bond Organization "There's a Bond Between US" (Dec '65) mellotron. no Moog.

Re: Quizzer

Oh yeah. Of course.

Re: Quizzer

Wallace wrote(

Re: Quizzer

Here's one for you Wallace which singer said
'we can fly to the moon but we cant de-fart the lentil'
Clue he is a UK singer and sang with a band beginning with 'H'

Re: Quizzer

Dave Brock


Jonathan Richmond

Re: Quizzer

Getting back to first Moog, Paul Beaver from beaver and Krause was one of the pioneers of it. He appeared on a number of albums as a guest artist/programmer in the late 60s.

Re: Quizzer

Re: Quizzer

Clear Light of Jupiter was early 70's LSD that was about 4 times stronger than '90's LSD.
