    Crack in the Cosmic Egg:

    Initially formed by a number of street musicians in Hirschberg, 1977, with the desire to create something more than just folk music, Emma Myldenberger quickly established a rich folk-rock style, totally acoustic, featuring female vocals and a penchant for blending in many other ethnic musics than just German folk. Really, their eponymous debut was much like a throw back to the progressive Kraut-folk albums of several years earlier, akin to Bröselmaschine, Hölderlin or Emtidi, yet with an otherworldly medieval feel, embellished by Middle-Eastern ethnic musics, notably with Biber Gullatz's distinctive oboe playing, their concoction was unique. Especially, it was amazing in that everything was acoustic!

    The second album, TOUR DE TRANCE, with considerably longer tracks and much more instrumental interplay, broke even more ground with a uniquely styled music that even went beyond the pioneering music of Between or the Third Ear Band, mysteriously ethnic and medieval, not really rock but with a lively rock energy, and an abundance of solos, surprising for what was still a totally acoustic ensemble. Emma Myldenberger were indeed pioneers that were pushing beyond the frontiers of established progressive, folk and world musics. But, for some unknown reason, they split before the end of the decade.

    Three Emma Myldenberger members later became the nucleus of the equally innovative Radio Noisz Ensemble. Biber Gullatz is nowadays much sought after as a session musician, working in jazz, ethnic and new-age musics.

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:

    Hailed from Riverside, California. They were originally known as The Ressacs. The 'A' side to their sole 45 has resurfaced on Boulders, Vol. 3 and Back From The Grave, Vol. 7 It's a snarling fuzz-punk effort which made little impression at the time and by the end of 1966 they were no more.

    Crack in the Cosmic Egg:

    An obscure Berlin rock band, formed in 1979, and regulars on the local club scene for some years. Mon Dyh were very indebted to British styled blues and heavy rock, strongly song-saturated, in the early Groundhogs territory. Still unusual on occasions, and with some progressive touches, their gruff German accented Bruce Springsteen cum Tony McPhee styled vocalist takes some getting used to! Their reputation as a scorching heavy rock band is totally unfounded, unless they were more raucous in concert, that is!

    Dreams Fantasies & Nightmares:

    Los Mockers, who are often considered the best sixties South American band, started in 1962-63 as a skiffle group, playing with home-made instruments at the "Instituto Zorilla" in Montevideo, Uruguay. They took the name Teddy Boys in 1964 and their repertoire consisted of rock 'n' roll numbers by Elvis Presley and Little Richard, instrumentals alá Shadows, and Latin songs like Perfidia or La Bamba. The later, after the British Invasion, turned to Twist And Shout.

    In 1965, they changed their name to Los Encadenados and discovering the first Rolling Stones' album, they started playing songs like Carol, Route '66, Walking The Dog, and The Animals' I'm Crying, in night clubs and school dances.

    When they became Los Mockers, in 1966, they were spotted by talent scouts of EMI Argentina that were on vacation in Uruguay. They signed a contract, and the band went to Buenos Aires to record and play in clubs and T.V. shows. Their records were not a big success, and in 1967 they returned disappointed to Uruguay, where they disbanded later the same year.

    Their first album is very good and influenced greatly by The Rolling Stones. Their best tracks, What A Life, Let Me Try Again, You Got It, Show Me The Way and Can't Be A Lie really sound as if they were left out from the 'Stones' mid-'60s albums. Empty Harem is a little bit different, drawing influences from Paint It Black and mid-eastern melodies. It's an excellent song. Los Mockers had a good sense of melody, which is not so common in the teen bands.

    Their second album, blended psychedelia with bubblegum and was far less effective than their debut.

    After their demise, Pereira joined the Argentine band Los Walkers and Hirschfield had a spell with Los Delfines and then headed to Spain.

    Cosmic Dreams:

    British progressive heavy rock bands like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Uriah Keep and Led Zeppelin inspired many young bands in Germany. The Germans usually preferred to use English lyrics, and several bands, like Blackwater Park, 2066 & Then and Epitaph, had British vocalists! Epitaph were founded in Dortmund in 1969. The first sessions for their debut album, released 1971 on Polydor, were recorded in an Essex studio in England. For reasons unknown to me, it was however finished in Windrose Studios, Hamburg, where a fourth member was added to the group: Klaus Walz. The five resulting tracks sounded similar to the groups mentioned above, and particularly the earliest incarnation of Uriah Heep. Epitaph's Cliff Jackson didn't attempt to copy Byron's operatic vocal style, though. There were both fast rock'n'roll numbers and slow ballads with mellotron textures, usually in the 'heavy progressive standard song length' - from 5 to 7 minutes. In 1972, Epitaph recorded their second album Stop, Look And Listen in Audio Tonstudio, Berlin. This album also contained five tracks, stylistically similar to their first offering. Both albums are recommended for fans of the heavy progressive genre. In early 1973, Epitaph released two non-LP singles on the Polydor subsidiary Zebra: "Autumn '71" coupled with "Are You Ready" (2047 003) and "We Love You Alice" coupled with "Paradise For Sale" (2047 005). After this promising start, it seems as if the band was promised a bright future by the newly founded American record company Billingsgate, that they eventually signed to. The band invested much time and money into their third album Outside The Law (1974), and aimed at an international break-through. On this album, McGillivray was replaced with Achim Wielert. The music sounded more polished this time, as the band abandoned progressive elements for a more straight forward heavy rock style. Sadly all their dreams of success were brutally shattered, as Billingsgate soon went bankrupt and all their money was lost. Epitaph had laid out on an extensive (and expensive) USA promotional tour (with ex-Karthago member Norbert Lehmann on drums) in October 1974 - on their return they had to sell their gear to survive! Their new album was part of the bankrupt estate of Billingsgate, and Epitaph were forced to disband in 1975. The band secretly reformed later the same year, but didn't record any further albums until 1979.

    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:

    A power trio from Boston whose influences varied from hard to soft rock and from jazz to eastern music. Their first LP included some virtuoso guitar especially on Just Let Go and Don't Tell Me and is better than their second, which was patchy but interesting in places.

    Earth & Fire ~ 1973 ~ Atlantis

    time: 33'40" size: 219 mb

     

    ProgArchives:

    This top notch Dutch band from The Hague had their pinnacle during the early Seventies when they delivered some outstanding 24 carat symphonic rock albums. EARTH & FIRE was founded by the twin brothers Chris (guitar) and Gerard (keyboards) Koerts in '68. Soon bass player Hans Ziech, drummer Kees Kalis and singer Lisette joined them. Unfortunately Lisette had to give up singing because of a serious eye-disease and Kees Kalis left. They were replaced by Ton v/d Kley and the beautiful, very sexy Jerney Kaagman. She was a discovery by GOLDEN EARRING singer Barry Hay, they knew each other from the blossoming rock scene in The Hague.

    When EARTH & FIRE had a hugh success with three Sixties poprock oriented singles "Seasons", "Ruby is the one" and "Wild and exciting" (in '70 all reached the Dutch Top 5), the band decided to become professionals. Gerard Koerts bought a Mellotron, this instrument changed the Dutch progrock history because EARTH & FIRE used it for a more lush symphonic keyboard sound. Eventually they developed a very unique progrock style (a bit similar to the French progrock band SANDROSE and UK band JULIAN'S TREATMENT featuring lots of organ, Mellotron, strong and sensitive electric guitar and distinctive vocals from Jerney Kaagman. And EARTH & FIRE remained successful with their single releases, the Mellotron drenched "Storm and Thunder" ('72, #6), "Memories" ('72, #1), "Maybe Tomorrow, Maybe Tonight" ('73, #3) and "Love of Life" ('74, #2) all reached the Dutch Top 10. Also the albums in that era sold very well and gained worldwide recognition: "Songs of the Marching Children" ('71, reaching #12), "Atlantis" ('73, reaching #6) and "To the World of the Future" ('75, reaching #7) are considered as 'progrock classics', especially in Japan EARTH & FIRE is even more popular than FOCUS! Gradually their sound turned into more poppy, culminating into the success of the very commercial song Weekend, reaching #1 and remaining 13 weeks in the charts! Also the following albums "Gate to Infinity" ('77), Reality Fills Fantasy" ('79, reaching #2)), "Andromeda Girl" ('81, reaching #12)) and "In a State of Flux" "82) lost most of the symhonic ingredients.

    The albums "Song of the Marching Children" and "Atlantis" belong to the best of the Dutch progrock history. The epic title tracks from both albums (between 16 and 19 minutes) are recommended: the sound is very warm and melodic with lots of changing atmospheres, accelerations and surprising breaks. The one moment you hear a mellow organ, twanging acoustic guitars and a fairy-like voice from Jerney, the other moment there are bombastic eruptions with majestic Mellotron, heavy floods of organ and some fiery electric guitar work, topped by the powerful voice of Jerney. By the way, she has been married for almost 30 years with Bert Ruiter, former bass player from FOCUS...!

    Cosmic Dreams:

    Another of those hitherto unknown groups that made only one album which has recently shot up in price on the collector's market. I have no information about the musicians involved, as they are not mentioned on the album sleeve. The composition credits for all tracks went to Gottfried Janko, who later became the organist and vocalist on Jane's 1975 album Lady. Dull Knife are often mentioned in second hand record lists as 'killer heavy progressive' or something like that, hut sometimes played a dreadful sort of soul-rock. The album opened promisingly enough with the hard rocking "Plastic People", putting you into the right mood, hut unfortunately the rest of the music on this side will scare the shit out of you, if you're not keen on artists like Joe Cocker or Tina Turner! Side two improved again, but far too late to save the album. This was another Rainer Goltermann production in the Dierks studio. August 1971 (mixed at Windrose, Hamburg).
