Labels: DOpa-Loka. Labels: ArcadiumBD. Track Se7en - Pride : Daughter of the Fireplace Leonard The group that has been called the Welsh answer to the Grateful Dead actually earn the nickname on this album.
There are definite similarities, including both bands' evident affection for American country and roots music, sprightly rock tunes, and extended and rambling instrumental jams. The other extended track, "The Alchemist," is at least interestingly weird, sounding like the band has been listening to lots of old horror movie scores before going into the studio for a long jam session.
Other cuts here are essential to Man fans, such as the frantic rockabilly tune "Daughter of the Fireplace," in which the band seems to be channeling Jerry Lee Lewis and "Country Girl," which could have been cut in Nashville instead of Swansea.
Man was definitely exploring musical boundaries on this album, and even if every cut isn't successful, it is still a fun listen. Along with Brinsley Schwarz, they helped establish the core of the pub-rock sound, but they played louder and also had a progressive component to their work that separated them from many of their rivals. The group originated as a Four Seasons-cum-Beach Boys vocal outfit, based in Swansea, Wales, called the Bystanders, who began experimenting with a tougher, more progressive sound on stage.
They were encouraged to pursue this direction, and Alright - Various - Now Thats What I Call Music! 31 was formed -- Micky Jones lead guitar, vocalsDeke Leonard guitar, vocalsClive John guitar, keyboards, vocalsRay Williams bassand Jeff Jones drums. Their first release, Revelation, issued in on Pye, was a concept album that yielded a successful European single, "Erotica," which contained the sound of an orgasm and thus failed to chart in England.
Their second album, 2 Ozs. Deke Leonard, in particular, whose playing was heavily influenced by Mick Green of the Pirates, became the star of the group by popular acclaim. Their contract with Pye Records ended inand the group signed with United Artists-Liberty, with a new rhythm section, consisting of Terry Williams on drums and vocals and Martin Ace playing bass.
In Februarythe group appeared Worlds Within Worlds - S.T. Mikael - Soul Flower the Greasy Truckers' Ball, a benefit concert held in London that Worlds Within Worlds - S.T. Mikael - Soul Flower taped for posterity, alongside Brinsley Schwarz and Hawkwind. Their performance was so impressive that United Artists chief Andrew Lauder who was also responsible for helping the post-Roy Loney Flamin' Groovies get their sound together encouraged them to do a full live album. The result was Live at the Padget Rooms, Penarth, the band's breakthrough album, even though it was originally released in a limited-edition pressing of copies.
The album became a much-sought collector's item in England, and suddenly the group had the attention of most of the record-buying public. Unfortunately, it was at after the release of that album that Deke Leonard decided to exit the lineup to pursue a solo career, which he launched with the successful album Iceberg.
At that point, Pye released a retrosepctive of their first two albums, while the group's current lineup began shifting again -- Deke Leonard was back for Rhinos, Winos and Lunatics, and Slow Motion led to the group's first American tour.
They followed this up with their first serious misstep, a hook-up with Quicksilver's John Cippolina as producer for what proved a disappointing album, Maximum Darkness. During the s, Micky Jones reunited the group and those interested members including Deke Leonard and found a steady living on the pub-rock circuit. Labels: innocent76S. Labels: COpa-Loka.

Moog and Mellotrons also help create those lush analog atmospheres which when combined with the array of hand drums and electric guitar accents will put you into a permanent "Dreamlab".

Not revival either. One of the big unearthings in resent memory.
Joyride thru an altered state! The best album of the last years ST Mikael This LP makes your brain start thinking in those pebble splash pond mind circular expanding waveforms that people on this vibe await the returning ship their roots sent out to bring back the password to tomorrow.
Soulful music clothed in flashing psychedelia! His best, the highest ranks! Features a bunch of atmospheric psychedelic pieces, with phased Worlds Within Worlds - S.T. Mikael - Soul Flower , melodic mellotron pieces and guitars on a slow burning fuse! Plenty of wig lifting material here On this record he plays guitars, sitars, turkish saz, drums, congas, tablas, organ, moog and does all the vocals.
Some of the best tracks here is in that new, truly original style he has made his own. He will probably be one of the future-legends of the Psychedelic Music Highlights here are the pounding "Godly" and the Worlds Within Worlds - S.T. Mikael - Soul Flower "Beyond the Haze". Side B is the strangest but also one of the best. ST Mikael experimented with Turkish ethnical instruments and musical style elements, resulting in the magnificent title track, the intriguing "The Titans" and the exotic, fuzzy "The Turkish Flower".
Side C brings songs from one session and it shows ST Mikael in a very emotional, spiritual mood; he sings and plays his songs with the intensity of a young Tim Buckley. Highlights here are the long, semi-instrumental "Moving ST Mikael proved once again to be a gifted songwriter and an unconventional performer with a very personal ear for acoustics and an emotional honesty seldom seen these days.
His recording has a homemade charm with wah-wah fuzz guitars, keyboards, sitars and primitive psychedelic effects. You do get the feeling that Mikael actually lives the lifestyle rather than just emulating it.
His soaring vocals, surreal lyrics, fragile, folky melodies and penchant for the spiritual and mystical make this altogether a fascinating voyage. His father was a jazz swinging plumber and his mother was an innocent forest girl. He was a lonely, introspective boy who developed a bizarre imagination and an obsession for everything odd, mysterious and supernatural in life. At 15 he picked up his mothers old guitar and started improvising and recording music. During this time he searched for the psychedelic experience and took his first dose of LSD.
Because of exhaustion and inability to secure any gigs the band broke up in With no expectations for the future he continued working with his ideas and primitive home recordings. To Mikaels great surprise he found that the tape was received with great enthusiasm and an album was soon made out of that very tape.
The album cover featured a colorful, organic vortex with images of beings of the galaxy in it painted by Mikael.
Each and every record had differently hand painted labels.
