Comments to album White Noise - An Electric Storm
Brilliantly produced and unique. I still have my original copy and play it occasionally. If you watch/listen to "The Forbidden Planet" you will hear where David Vorhaus obtained some of the samples which he painstakingly cut and looped on audio tape ( probably why he didn't do another album like this on)
I have a UK pink rim Island label, on thick vinyl, with ILPS-9099 on the front cover, and rear, and spine, and labels, no barcode, but no mention in the listings here
The album starts with a track that could be filed under TripHop today. The sound is incredible when you imagine who less electronic equipment was available at the time of production. "Firebird" is a hymn for all the creative minds out there. This album was way ahead of it's time.
Do not listen to the final track (The Black Mass: An Electric Storm In Hell) under the influence of any psychotropic drugs, unless you enjoy torture & fear.It's a hard listen sober.
Indeed it's an alarming experience. I always imagine human souls being hurled into the pit of hell by evil orc type things. Love the phased drums though :)
If you like check out the Swinging Sixties Hammer film "Dracula AD 1972" a bunch of hippies are tricked into performing a satanic rite on ACID to resurrent the old Vampire (Chritopher Lee), and guess what they are playing on a tape reel as their "mood music"
This is a matter of taste, of course. But stemming from Düsseldorf and having been bored by Kraftwerk already in the seventies, I vividly recall having been frightened and fascinated by these three guys (or more precisely: two guys and a girl) who brought together advanced state of the art electronical music and psychedelic rock music. I hear it now for the first time in - say - thirty years, and it seems still nearly as intense as back then. What I hear now and couldn't hear then is the fun they must have had then; so your mentioning the Pythons is not completely off.
One of the best albums of all time [apart from the last track]Gorgeous, trippy, intelligent electronic pop : )Criminal that they didn't do anything else together.And such a shame Vorhaus tarnished the project with poor subsequent releases : (
