    Thanks; now I have something I can watch every time I start to wax nostalgic for the ’60s. It’ll remind me that, like every era, most of the musical output from the days of my youth did, indeed, suck.

    Wow, Arthur Brown actually recorded more than one song?

    • Kaden says:

      Yeah, it’s a shame he got tagged as a one trick pony… He’s actually produced a huge body of work. Dig up tracks of him fronting Hawkwind for a full daily portion of spaciness.

      Clearly you’ve been limited by repeated listenings to the Velvet Underground.

        Huh? No, “Fire” was a huge radio hit when I was but a lad, and I’ve never heard anything else by the guy.

    I demand that Friday Freak-Out be made a permanent BoingBoing feature. Looking forward to the future post that mashes it up with Mean Monkey Mondays.

    My favorite Arthur Brown album is “Journey” with the Kingdom Come. It is amongst the very first pop albums to use a drum machine exclusively for the rhythm tracks — a little something to alienate the hippies. Much fun if you enjoy severely dated electro.

    And thanks, Mr. Pescovitz, for the plug!

    The scariest part of the nightmare is that painting behind him!

    Walks in scary and evil but starts “groovin’” way too soon :)

    BTW….LOVE the flaming crown!

    Was that Syd Barrett on drums? It certainly looked like him.
