Writing On The Wall - The Power Of The Picts (U.k. 1969)




An Edinburgh band, who were originally known as The Jury. They moved down to London, changed their name to Writing On The Wall and were a popular attraction at London's Middle Earth Club. Their album didn't capture them at their best. The sound was flat and it was poorly produced. Bogeyman catches the ear. With its maze of interlocking riffs and driving rhythm it was the natural choice for the Middle Earth sampler Earthed. Child On A Crossing was not included on the album but was added as an additional track when the album was reissued in Germany on Repertoire in 1992. Two of the better tracks on the album were Aries and Hill Of Dreams, but also of note was the 'B' side to the single Lucifer Corpus, which had an excellent guitar solo and real menace.

Willy Finlayson left in 1969 being replaced by Robert Smith, who'd been in The Embers and Three's A Crowd. Soon after Smith and Patterson left but the band soldiered on until late 1973, releasing one further 45 for Pye.

Both sides of the Middle Earth 45 can also be heard on Filling The Gap (4-LP) and Visions Of The Past, Vol. 2 (LP & CD). Buffalo has resurfaced on Rubble, Vol. 10 - Professor Jordan's Magic Sound Show (LP) and Filling The Gap. It sounds pretty good to these ears. The band also signed to Tetragammaton in the US and they put out a live album, Live At Middle Earth, which is apparently better and much different to the UK release. It's also hopelessly rare. Wooden O recorded a version of Aries (Middle Earth MDE 201) 1969. Finally a version of The Small Faces Sha La La La Lee recorded at a John Peel session has resurfaced on Mynd The Gap (LP), and Ladybird can be found on Progressive Music (LP).

Patterson left the band to join Beggar's Opera, but sadly died in the early nineties. Robert Smith joined Blue. Certainly Writing On The Wall were the best progressive rock outfit to come out of Edinburgh.

Of their retrospective albums, Cracks In The Illusion Of Life contains both sides of a 1967 45, Words And Music / Peter Gunn, issued originally as The Jury. Also featured are two promising pop-psych tracks from 1968; Felicity Jane and Flight Of The Mind plus the more mainstream Katie's Been Gone. From 1972 there's the keyboard-orientated Fishers Of Men, but sadly most of side two is taken up with rather unimaginative hard-edged rock. Of this both sides of their 1973 45 for Pye, Man Of Renown, are the pick of the bunch.

TREVOR - Wolf -1981





Wolf is the third studio album by musician Trevor Rabin, released in 1981 through Chrysalis Records.

Trevor Charles Rabin (/ˈreɪbɪn/, born 13 January 1954) is a South African American musician, singer-songwriter, producer, and film composer. Born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, Rabin was born into a family of musicians. After taking up the piano and guitar, Rabin became a session musician with a variety of artists prior to forming the rock band Rabbitt who enjoyed considerable success in South Africa. In 1978, Rabin moved to London to further his career, working as a solo artist and a producer for various artists including Manfred Mann's Earth Band.

From 1983 to 1995, Rabin was the guitarist in the rock band Yes after he and members of a band he co-formed, Cinema, became the band's new line-up. He played on their albums 90125 (1983), Big Generator (1987), Union (1991), and Talk (1994). Developed mostly from demos by Rabin, 90125 remains the band's biggest selling album, helped by its lead single "Owner of a Lonely Heart" which topped Billboard's Hot 100 and Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks charts.

In 1995, Rabin left to become a film composer and has since scored over 40 feature films, most notably his frequent collaborations with producer Jerry Bruckheimer,[1] and won numerous awards including 11 BMI Awards. He continues to release albums, the most recent of which is Jacaranda (2012). In 2016, Rabin took a break from film scoring to co-form Yes Featuring Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Rick Wakeman and returned to live performance. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Yes in April 2017.

Ten Years After - 1972 - Rock & Roll Music To The World








Rock & Roll Music to the World είναι ο τίτλος του έβδομου στούντιο άλμπουμ του αγγλικού ροκ συγκροτήματος Ten Years After, το οποίο κυκλοφόρησε σε μορφή δίσκου βινυλίου τον Οκτώβριο του 1972 μέσω της δισκογραφικής εταιρείας "Chrysalis" στην Ευρώπη και της "Columbia" στην Αμερική.
Το άλμπουμ γνώρισε μέτρια εμπορική επιτυχία σε σχέση με τους προκατόχους του, ανεβαίνοντας στο Top-20 στη Νορβηγία και τον Καναδά και το Top-30 στην πατρίδα του συγκροτήματος και την Γερμανία. Παρ' όλα αυτά, σημείωσε τις χαμηλότερες πωλήσεις για τους Ten Years After από το "Stonedhenge" του 1969.

Raised in Northern California with a country musician father, she began writing and recording songs during her childhood.

Musical style

Nina Corcoran of Consequence of Sound described the album as "strik[ing] a fine balance between gothic folk and electronic noise rock" and "embracing metal and overpowering drones".[2] Brandon Stosuy of Pitchfork noted that metallic elements are "built into, and integral to, the music, which frequently booms with distorted doom-metal guitar."[5] Tristan Jones of Sputnikmusic wrote: "Though “darkwave” is a fitting descriptor, elements of doom, folk, noise, and industrial seep in."[6] Giuseppe Zevolli of Drowned in Soundassociated the album with goth rock, writing that it "could appeal to fans of metal, folk, industrial and alternative rock in equal measure"

Q 5 - Steel The Light (1984)




Q5 is an American hard rock/heavy metal band from Seattle, Washington. Their first studio album, titled Steel the Light, came out in 1984. Picking up some critical praise, the outfit toured with the likes of Lita Ford and Twisted Sister. However, the group faced internal divisions that ultimately ended the project before the 1980s came to a close. In 2014, Q5 re-formed to perform at the Sweden Rock Festival, and the band members involved found that the one-off event didn't seem nearly enough, deciding to continue on with the revamped version of the group.

More Images Sylvester Anfang II ‎– Commune Cassetten (2010)



Rooted in the Belgian "Funeral Folk collective" Silvester Anfang, the similarly named Sylvester Anfang II got the idea for their split-off group from Amon Düül II.
This new combo of largely un-named musicians tend to record everything as free-form jams, all in the spirit of their Krautrock mentors, compared to Man, The Grateful Dead and Swedish acts like Harvester, et al.
Go to Silvester Anfang for releases by the other band.
