Est...Folle, from 1968, features arrangements from Serge Gainsbourg collaborator Jean Claude Vannier. An announcement from the label describes the album as sporting "lush strings, taut rhythms culled from across the globe and a healthy dose of whimsy," and observes, "Such artful handling of meter and rhyme (or lack thereof) is rare in pop song."

Kennelmus

March 12, 2010 by garry

Hailing from the sun-pummeled desert of Phoenix, Arizona, Kennelmus was a local rock band who were notable for belting out an unlikely--and pretty tweaked--combination of psychedelic and surf, and for operating in the same time (the late 1960s and early '70s) and place as the original Alice Cooper group. While the Coopers, of course, went on to worldwide fame and fortune with a clever songbook that alternated between teen angst and the macabre, and a pioneering violent theatrical stage show featuring Alice's death sentence carried out nightly on the gallows and guillotine, Kennelmus were content to slog it out in the regional trenches, gigging just for fun, a little money...and girls' phone numbers. Starting out playing British invasion top 40 covers as the Shi-Reeves, the band quickly grew tired of that schtick and decided the time was ripe for a little creativity. So, they renamed themselves Kennelmus after bandleader Ken Walker's real name, and wrote a rock opera of sorts called Folkstone Prism loosely based on the band's life story.

Originally released in 1971 in a limited-edition of 1000 copies--some of which were sold, and others "given away for sexual favors"--Folkstone Prism was finally unearthed from the Sl*g heap of obscurity via a CD reissue three decades later in 1999. Just one listen reveals a band that was eager to ladle a virtual buffet of sounds into your hungry ears. From upbeat instrumental surf with heavily reverbed and keening lead guitar to melancholy and mellow songs with odd guitar stabs and exotic-sounding zither to all-out rocking sections full of hard fuzz riffs to free-form, floaty realms featuring flitting sound effects and tape static, vocal speech samples and all kinds of backward guitar wash. On one song, they even shouted some dorky, proto-DEVO vocals over a bed of stuttering, quirky rock, and composed a "setting" for Edgar Allan Poe's The Ravenon another. As far as little-known psych gems go, Kennelmus'Folkstone Prism is one of the better examples and comes highly reccomended for fans of this genre.

I went with Kennelmus which I found really interesting. So many of the bands you present here Pierre should be on this site including the one I recommended to you called Baba Scholae. On a side note I noticed a band called Weed when I was checking out one of the YouTube videos and was really impressed. A proto-Prog or Heavy Prog band with Ken Hensley from uriah Heep playing on it.

Thanks John. Kennelmus is a very good surprise. I don't understand why such a great psych album is not more quoted. I bought Baba Scholae last week. Great stuff, very varied. Heart
And I know Weed with its horrible cover. It's on one of my lists. But which one ? Geek

^LOL Yes that's the one with the horrid cover. Looks like lentils on that fork, not weed. That first track is so good.
I just got Baba Scholae in the mail on Friday.Thumbs Up Haven't played it yet.
Some interesting picks here Pierre, that Magma one was good along with the French lady. I can't believe that Kennelmus were from Arizona.Shocked

The Brigitte Fontaine's album is one of the treasure of the french song. Her voice and her lyrics are beautiful. Not very progressive, I know, but where J.C Vannier goes, I go. Smile

Hannibal are squarely in that unique early 70s UK blues rock school of saxophone lead proto prog, similar in scope to other same-era English acts like Diabolus, Aquila, and Raw Material (circa their first album). Some really nice jazz-tone guitar work too. Despite the lengthy tracks, there isn’t much in the way of inter-song development. Highlights are certainly the last two tracks: 'Wet Legs' and 'Winter', which raise this to a 3.5. A good example of the style.

The only one I had heard before was the German Magma and that's what I ended up voting for.

Amazing German duo that play high pomp jazzy progressive-rock similar to Hardin and York . Very rare on vinyl and only recently discovered by collectors, this is filled with rhythmic drum work (similar to the Linder And Bohn album) and percussion combined with symphonic synth fusions that achieve amazing levels of creativity and intensity. The full 1975 album plus 5 bonus track.
