Originally the P, the Tritonclass boat was renamed Tireless just before her launch in Portsmouth Dockyard on March. But she was not completed until April 18,and by the time she sailed via Suez to the Far East she was too late to see active service, reaching Hong Kong in November. Tireless spent the next year in. Supermarine Walrus IT'S Electroflava - Bassbin Twins / Hidden Rhythm & Invisible Man - Represent to digest the fact that the designer of the Spitfire - one of the most elegant fighting aircraft of all time - was also responsible for the far less aesthetically pleasing Walrus.
Supermarine designer R. Mitchell, whose duck-like amphibian first appeared as a private venture in under the name Seagull V, was nevertheless on to a winner. Stressed for catapulting, the 'Seagull V became the first amphibian in the world to be catapulted, with a full military Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94from a warship. Re-named the Walrus by the Royal Navy, this unlikely.
Primarily intended as a spotted plane, it was also used extensively on anti-submarine patrols, as a bomber - HMS Dorsetshire's Walrus bombed the Italians in Somaliland and by the RAF on air-sea rescue duties, alighting in rough or mined waters, often near enemy coasts to pluck to safety downed air. They were brave deeds which largely escaped the illumination of publicity. The Walrus's ruggedness, the reliability of its small, single, pusher engine and its flying characteristics - described by one pilot as like driving a seater bus on a smooth road won for it the praises of the people who flew it.
In the 40 squadrons in which it served it became known, affectionately, as the 'Shagbat' - reputedly a mythical bird that flies around in ever decreasing circles until it disappears Disappear it did, eventually, though like its stablemate the Spitfire, it survived both the UFO In Brazil - Various - This Is Afro Art! and its designer.
Although replaced progressively from onwards by the not dissimilar Sea Otter, the last Walruses did not leave FAA squadron service until almost the end of Armament included a Vickers machine-gun in the bow cockpit and one or two Vickers in a cockpit amidships. It could carry light bombs beneath the wings. Other work included refuelling, enhancing the environmental suite, a weapons system data bus and the replacement of the Mark 24 11 Tigerfish with the Spearfish heavyweight torpedo.
Tireless, like her sisters, is adapting to new roles which suit her nuclear-powered capabilities. Officially a fleet submarine, Tireless is known as a hunterkiller, designed to seek out and destroy enemy submarines. With arrays of powerful sensors to call on, the ship's company con. Apart from her torpedoes, she can fire long-range Sub Harpoon missiles, now the seen as her primary anti-surface vessel weapon.
She can run submerged for weeks on end - the only limit being the needs of the ship's company. The class is fitted with retractable forward hydroplanes and strengthened fins to allow operations under the ice - Tireless herself has visited the North Pole on at least three occasions. Tireless, the third of the seven Tboats, is undertaking sea trials, and there will be a spell of operational sea training before she is operational again.

Although designed as ocean-going patrol submarines, they struggled to meet the requirements for long-range work in the Pacific, and were slower, less comfortable and more cramped than US boats. T-class vessels had six internal bow tubes, another two above the.
The external tubes could not be reloaded at sea. She also mounted a standard 4in gun and a machine gun. Tireless would have been fully manned by a crew of 63 including five officers. After the war some of the Tboats were used to test new developments, Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 streamlining, and her gun was taken away and alterations made to the bridge fin.

Telephone No. Churchill is not only inaccurate, it is unworthy of the great man in that it fails to acknowledge amongst other things that he was the only man in British history to have a ship named for him whilst he was still alive.
That ship was, Also Sprach Zarathustra - David Shire - The Big Bus course, the nuclear submarine HMS Churchill, a front line capital ship that went on to play, appropriately, a significant role in fighting, and helping to win, the Cold War.
The opening line is thus entirely wrong. The article then fails to mention or even count our magnificent ship, it also misses the other interesting connection which the two ships share, namely that Lady Mary Soames was our sponsor as well, and she always maintained a lively interest in our activities.
There is much more I could say in my fury, but on behalf of the hundreds of proud submariners who served in HMS Churchill during her outstanding career, I deeply regret the disgraceful omission in your article. As an ex-commanding officer of the submarine I, with five of my colleagues, attended the launch as guests of the builders. We were honoured to be there to pay our personal Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 to a man whose name we cherished.
At least Bath Iron Works appreciated the connection! The first line of the article. It is a far cry from my ancient experience and a very much better training in every way now, than it Deutschland - Leon Boden Und Bernd Klinzmann - Tucholsky In Rock some odd years Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94.
It was inwhile serving in submarines stationed at HMS Dolphin that I spotted a notice asking for volunteers to train as shallow water divers. An AFO had recently come out that all submarines had to carry one or more of them. I was the only volunteer and was instructed to present myself at the DSEA school at When I arrived the Chief said: "Here ladshove this covered handcart" and off we went, not to the tank where I was expecting to gambol about in nice clear warm water, but to the jetty where HMS Alliance is now.
Alongside the jetty there was a pontoon. Down we went with the. Next, on with the rubber suit which was called a Sladen Suit. I got into this thing. The feet were integral and of course about six inches too long for me. Then into the top with the attached rubber helmet. By now I was sweating like a pig Doctor Explosion / Shutdown 66 - The Spanish Shutdown EP had lost all feeling in my hands from the rubber cuffs.
The Chief then concertinaed the entrance tunnel and put on a damn great clamp and tucked all the spare into the front of the suit to be held in place by clips. Next to appear were a pair of half hundredweight diving boots and a belt with a knife and more weight.
Now for the breathing apparatus. As I am just about 5ft 2in tall and the blasted suit was made for a bloke at least 6ft you can imagine what I looked like. At least the Chief tried not to laugh. The nose clip went on, the mouthpiece went in and the visor was shut.
A rope went round my waist. Now walk to Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 edge and jump in. All the air in the suit came to the top, making me look like an advert for Michelin tyres. The lower half of the suit clamped round my legs and crotch pinching a lot.
I sank a little but not much. I went down like a stone, hitting the bottom and going into the ancient mud of Haslar Creek up to my armpits. The mud was full of all sorts of gash from Dolphin, Hornet and Haslar Hospital and I had heard tales of damned great conger eels.
I was totally stuck and blind as the water was a bit murky to say the least. I gave four hefty pulls on the safety rope and Chief pulled, nearly cutting me in half - but no. Still nothing. Now serious procedures were called for, so I started to bleed air from the side of the mouthpiece and gradually the suit started to inflate, the Chief still pulling with all his might. I very quickly came unstuck and shot up like a rocket - right under the pontoon which belted the valve on the top of the helmet neatly into my skull.
Now panic really set in as I felt my way under the underside of the pontoon, lacerating my hands a lot on the barnacles in the process. Eventually I got to the edge and surfaced and was hauled out, blood streaming from my hands and down my face.
The Chief was very good. He even managed to keep a straight. I was never called upon to use my newly acquired skills, thank God. The men who went to war in similar suits in Chariots and X. If this is correct, why was my DO told by Centurion that all foreign shore service drafts would be filled by all the other trade structures before AEMs were even considered and that AEMs would only be used in 'dire emergencies'.
Surely this is discrimination. Only if a particular Drafting Section has difficulty satisfying the requirement do they throw the billet open to the drafting floor to fill, assuming that the potential employer is comfortable with an out of branch candidate. It is true that the AEM branch at the AB level is building a small overbearing and that we are adopting a more flexible approach to filling non AE billets but this is only after we have satisfied the FAA requirement.
Therefore I can assure your correspondent that there is no discrimination, in fact, knowing that the FAA have very few opportunities for LFS employment we positively relish the chance to draft ratings to foreign shores.
Seaman is to be abolished, no doubt at the behest of management consultants seeking a flatter command pyramid? So the day you join your training establishment you are an "able" seaman? Able to "hand reef and steer" or whatever the modern equivalent Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 The argument was that there is little or no difference in Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 skills between Ord and AB.
One wonders what the incentive will be in the future, to advance one's professional skills at the base of the pyramid if the progressions in rating have been removed? Money alone? Well, possibly - but I do wonder. I love the Navy after 40 years in it but I do question the current devotion to "management theory". I wonder how many people know that the first firm of management consultants, Urwick Orr, was set up after World War I because the two Army officers concerned realised that "business" was so inefficient that a bit of Army Staff practice would benefit them?
We used to enter "landsmen" who were then rated "Ordinary Seamen" when they had gained the required skills, andultimately, "Able Seamen" when they had progressed further.
Management expertise simply doesn't come into it. Am I really the only one to see this? Loring, Downton.

Charges mean we're divorced from reality WHEN is the Royal Navy going to recognise financial difficulties of divorced men paying the Child Support Agency and reflect this in our food and accommodation charges?
We still have all the outgoings of when we were married like mortgage bills, travel and debts left over from the marriage. Does the Navy expect us to stay on ships for the rest of our Naval careers to avoid these charges? At a recent meeting with the CSA I was told I could not claim back my food and accommodation charges as I get relief on my mortgage and I can't live Sharpening The Knife - Mike Harding / Peter Harwood - More Death & Horror two places at once, but I do, I'm in the Navy.
It's time the Navy recognised this ever increasing problem and reflected this in our pay, not just label us single. Nelson replied from Merton on February 2, stating where the print could be found - whereupon Thomas Forsyth went out and bought it and stuck Nelson's letter on the back, where it remains to. Colyton, Devon. Q Shown here is a vignette after a drawing by Simon De Koster which Nelson said "is the most like me". My husband and I have been married for quite some time.
We took the opportunity to purchase our property through a discount scheme being offered by the Navy, as it sold off its surplus properties to local councils. What I find very difficult to understand is why once people have purchased their own homes, the Navy sends our husbands to a different base port to where our homes are. The Navy is depriving my children of their father and him of the pleasure of seeing them grow Auryn - Anti-Héroes (Fan Edition) In my case both our parents live in the North West and it is very difficult to see them, especially now that the warrant I used to depend Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 has been stopped.
Heal, Liskeard. I beg to differ. We formed part of a force sent to intercept the Gneisenau and Schamhorst which were believed to be at sea to attack shipping off Norway. At one stage we were running in very heavy seas and a photograph was taken of the Hood from the Dunquerque. All that could be seen Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 the tops of the funnels and the masts.
I believe Admiral Gensoul had several copies sent to the Hood. Unfortunately my copy went down on my next ship - I wonder if any. Many readers may naturally assume that Navy.

It would undoubtedly make many photographers jubilant if you were to take more care in crediting images to the photographer - the only thing more satisfying than seeing your work in print is.
Manxman reached The design intention was Trials are run with a dean bottom and the machinery in best condition; there is little chance of such speeds being exceeded in service. Both trial and model data were re-examined. Braves did exactly their design speed of 50 knots and no more. The hydrofoil Speedy did 43 kts in Puget Sound, I was on board!
Of the other ships mentioned by your correspondents, Swift failed to reach her design speed of Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 knots and after 26 propellers had been tried she was accepted at It is, however, free of the artificial fetters placed on accurate recording by the Naval Discipline Act. I have also been arrogant enough to assume that my ten years in the Branch the last five as a Petty Officer Photographer assessed at VG Superior conduct and three years spent at sea in HMS Invincible qualify me to comment on matters that concern me.
You raised the issue why I did not approach the Navy News archive for help. I undertook meticulous research using original source materials and therefore felt it unnecessary to research at Navy News when the photographers that took the pictures were handing original prints to me during interviews.
Perhaps the good thing to come from this issue is the clarification and amplification of the prominent support and reliance on the Photographic Branch. I couldn't agree more - to which end, if more RNPB photographers supplied their names along with their pictures, we would be delighted to credit more of them. Yarrow's Tyrian reached Brown, Bath.

This said, the album only has one track of any real merit for Krautrock fans, which reflects Andreas Scholz's origins in Murphy Blend. With them he served a long apprenticeship, and made friends with many international musicians, achieving fame as one of the most dazzling fusion guitarists in Europe.
His work as a soloist, as group leader, Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 with his own experimental band Electric Circus, has indeed been most Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94.
Since then, Toto's ventured onto creating all sorts of fusions, from simple classical and jazz musics through to groundbreaking avant-garde, both as a multi-instrumental soloist and in collaboration with other musicians. Sometimes Toto embraces technology and pushes it to the limits, and at other times he ignores it altogether. Such is his schizophrenic personality as a musician. Later releases however not listed here The Voice Within - Various - Knuffelrock 13 the rest of the band scarper, leaving Blonker as the vehicle for guitarist Dieter Geike with the aid of various session musicians Peter Franken, Dieter Horns, Jochen Petersen, Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94.
Really, these albums are so wet and pretty, that they are not musically within the scope of this book! Hardly "psychedelic underground", of minor curiosity interest only. An obscure band, fronted by singer Marcel L. Bongers, of whom we know virtually nothing historically. Comparable to many other fellow late's progressives: Second Movement, Rousseau, Pancake, et al.
Bongers Project had a slightly different angle, in that they made that spacey type of progressive, often more akin to the French band Pulsar. They were a lot better than most, with thick wedges of keyboards, guitars and lots of flute, especially the lengthy suite covering side 1 of the LP.
Georg Kobeck keyboardsMarcel L. Later, wisely changing name and becoming Brainstorm, they still attempted to shock with their debut album SMILE A WHILE, which caused such a scandal due to its outrageous cover that it was apparently withdrawn from release! Highlighted by quality musicianship, notably a dizzying array of winds and keyboards, with complexly arranged instrumentals and, like the Dutch band Supersister, a penchant for eccentric tongue-in-cheek humour.
Brainstorm lived up to their name, and both albums are classics of the genre. Roland Schaefer later became a bastion of Guru Guru, and Joachim Koinzer has fronted numerous fusion bands since. Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 history of Brainticket is virtually undocumented, and their origins are also very confused. And, although they are considered by many to be a Krautrock band, they were really a nomad troupe, going wherever the scene took them.
Basically, Brainticket were born out of the 60's jazz and soul scenes, and a variety of groups featuring Belgian born keyboardist Joel Vandroogenbroeck. Their origins can be traced back toas the nucleus of Dee Dee Barry And The Movements, with Joel Vandroogenbroeck organ, fluteRon Bryer guitarand Wolfgang Paap drumsthough this was far away from the music they were later to create.
Joel, along with a few like-minded musicians active in the South of Germany, inevitably got caught up in the fertile Krautrock scene, and like many other bands from the area they formed an international combo that drew on a wide range of influences.
All but for the two short dreamy surreal tracks that open side 1 of the album which hint at the later Brainticket soundthe majority of the album is a long repetitive funky groove opus, propelled along by chunky organ and percussion. It has the spirit of Can, the outrageousness of Funkadelic, and pre-empting Faust, and for it's certainly nothing less than revolutionary. Over this musical mantra, Dawn Muir recants vividly the experience of an extraordinary LSD trip, acting it out for us, including all the paranoia, visions of ecstasy, power and confusion, the Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 surreal buzz of the experience.
This is topped off by extraordinary use of special effects, sound-collage and electronics. And, if that weren't enough, they also resort to all manner of trickery and surprising diversions. It all adds up to a strange and unique album that's still surprisingly startling and fresh over 25 years on, and as a result it's also been the subject of numerous homage's.
Moving base to Italy, some of the band split off and formed the Swiss hard-rock band Toad, and thus a new version of Brainticket evolved. It was more your typical trippy progressive, with actual songs and compositions, sometimes in the vein of early Hawkwind, yet often closer to Quintessence and Group There are many facets to the music here, especially when venturing on to trippy folk territory, with Suttree - Dark Hollow lead vocals, akin to Emtidi or Pentangle a little.
It's an album that saw a diversion to weirder more electronic realms, with strong use of ethnic instruments and a wealth of surprises. Though very different to the original Brainticket, they were still proving to be innovators.
This trio apparently existed for some time touring Germany, Switzerland and Italy in Chick Churchill - You And Me / Come And Join Me mid's.
We know that Brainticket carried on through the late's, as concert tapes have been advertised by some dealers, though nothing was released again until For the first time, Brainticket were a totally instrumental combo, leaving the music to speak for itself. Apart from a proliferation of electronics, these albums strongly feature percussion and flute, and in the established tradition of Brainticket, these were groundbreaking stuff, again radical innovative albums, though far from the psychedelic realms of the 70's releases.
In parallel, during the late's and through on to the 90's, Joel Vandroogenbroeck has also fronted other projects, he had is own jazz-rock band Joel, and has also done much solo work, as well as travelling the world researching obscure ethnic music cultures. It seems that he is currently earning a living by recording music for film and TV. See Joel Vandroogenbroeck entry for more information. Chris Braun lead vocalsElmar Krohn guitars, flute, percussion, vocalsHorst Schreiber guitars, percussion, vocalsJochen Bernstein bassBill Bakine drums, percussion.
Brave New World's whole oeuvre was the concept of the Aldous Huxley science fiction novel. An unlikely "supergroup", and remarkably the music they created was unprecedented and original.
Virtually instrumental, blending medieval musics, electronics, jazz and rock in a dazzlingly complex fusion, a big step beyond early Between, with Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 Krautrock feel of Annexus Quam, Achim Reichel, Tomorrow's Gift, et al.
And, dig that over-amplified stylophone! An all-time Krautrock classic. An obscure mid's rock band, of the more mainstream type with notable American influences.
Their album had its moments, with hints of Thirsty Moon and Karthago. Only of marginal interest. The original band, who were inspired by Pentangle their quote, not ours and European folk musics, played a mixture of all sorts of cultures. They wrapped vibrant songs in a hybrid of folk, Indian music, psychedelic rock and cosmic musics, all fused together to form a B.O.L.* - Punk & Sex & Alcohol spacious folk-fusion of great beauty.
The later incarnation made a different type of music, and was less of a proper band and more a vehicle for Bursch's own ego, though Willi Kismer from the original band also carried on through. Peter Bursch had become celebrated, with books published on his guitar techniques and was eager to show the world, though really neither of these later albums amounted to much. A really eccentric and bizarre political theatre troupe from we presume Hamburg.
Bullfrog were a rather heavy-handed hard-rock and melodic progressive from the mid's, notable for their unusual Rod Stewart like gravel-voiced vocalist Gerd Hoch, but with little in the way of a distinctive style or originality. Really, they sounded British, not at all Krautrock, and only really of interest to hard-rock fans and Sky Records collectors!
There was another band could Bullfrog who should not be confused with these. Originally, as a bass guitarist, Michael Bundt started his career as the leader of the band Medusa, an obscure early's progressive who by a strange chain of events transmuted into the second incarnation of Nine Days Wonder.
After leaving Nine Days Wonder, Michael tried on various occasions to get a new band together. One of these was Nerve, but without any success Dave Edmunds - Slipping Away soon disbanded, and then Michael made a surprising career change into synth music, teaming up with ex-Tritonus keyboardist Peter K.
Seiler Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 the duo Sirius. Not content to Allah Hu, Allah Hu, Allah Hu - Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan - Ecstasy still, his next album NEON was a dodgy diversion into electro-pop, no doubt inspired by the success of Kraftwerk.
One of the most celebrated and influential of all Krautrock bands, Can dared to bring the avant-garde to the masses and succeeded. Can certainly had the credentials to do so too, with backgrounds in serious avant-garde studying with Stockhausen and in jazz. Holger Czukay and Irmin Schmidt had known each other from their contemporary studies, though it was Holger meeting multi-instrumental talent Michael Karoli that set the formation of the band in motion.
Being connected with the arts certainly had its advantages. A matter of days after getting a band together, then named "The Inner Space", they played their first concert at the Schloss Norvenich, near Cologne in Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 David Johnson an American jazz winds player who had also worked with Stockhausen was a member of the band at this time, and featured on some of the early Can sessions, he also acted as their engineer for a while.
After the addition of black American singer Malcolm Mooney came Can proper, moving to a more straight ahead rock, that many compare to the Velvet Underground. Due to his fascination with electronics as further evidenced on the Technical Space Composers Crew album and his ability to handle the recording equipment, Holger Czukay also became the bands recording engineer. But, this Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 of Can was short-lived, as Malcolm Mooney was forced to leave the band due to ill health.
The next lead vocalist to front Can was an unlikely choice, a Japanese busker, one Kenji "Damo" Suzuki. His penchant for vocal experimentation led Can in a very different direction. Next was the greatest of Can albums, the monumental double album TAGO MAGO, which, although starting on safe ground, draws the listener in with a succession of even greater weirdness and invention, not least "Aumgn" with Jaki's manic drums and "Peking O.
Weird and radical innovation, that still sounds bizarre twenty odd years on! In contrast in fact in contrast with each other the other two albums to feature Damo were, on the whole, less extreme: EGE BAMYASI with a collection of mostly shorter accessible songs, though still odd and uniquely Can, unexpectedly breaking-out with the wild avant-garde 10 minute "Soup" on the second side, and FUTURE DAYS which is often quoted as Can's most well-balanced and successful album, with its dreamy cosmic otherworldly atmosphere, understated songs and strong melodic content.
This is the era that brought Can international success, with many tours in Britain and the continent. Here we can hear songs that hint at Holger Czukay's solo project MOVIES, one of Can's most dazzling rock extravaganza's in "Vernal Equinox", and lastly their most esoteric and brooding opus, the aptly entitled free-form avant-garde "Unfinished".
However, by the time of their eponymous 70's finale they'd created a formula that worked, all be it safe and easy going compared to the Can of yore. It's a shame that more of this excellent music isn't officially documented. After this, Can were Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 on ice for an unspecified period.
But, not content to lay the ghost to rest however, a Can reunion was organised in with Malcolm Mooney. In it gained release as RITE TIME, a stylish yet emotionless throwback to the early Can era, understandably it was really "the wrong time" and it made little impact. Meanwhile the various Can members are still active on the scene, check elsewhere in this book! On the basis of their ROCK OFFERS contribution the only recording that we've heardthese were a typically Teutonic lightweight but majestic progressive, akin to Rousseau or Jane at their softest, a little Pink Floyd-like, with much use of keyboards to flesh-out the sound.
An obscure heavy Swiss progressive blending British 60's styles with the typically Teutonic 70's hard-rock sound, notably inspired by Deep Purple, along with some more progressive touches.
Amateurishly produced, and with little in the way of originality, Cardeilhac are good, but really only of minor interest. A very English sounding folk-rock band, and largely acoustic, fronted by a talented female vocalist. They had little individual style of their own, recalling the likes of Pentangle or Mellow Candle, with a nice dreamy trippy feel.
Often akin to later Release Music Orchestra, and with some notable Return To Forever type stylisms, Chameleon chose an apt name considering the wide range of influences and moods their sole album contained. Note that the Berlin Chameleon are a different band entirely. Checkpoint Charlie named after the notorious checkpoint in the Berlin Wall have often been acclaimed as the first truly German rock band. They originated from Karlsruhe, and, as early asthey were performing their own uniquely groundbreaking "Terror Rock" music in German!
An extremely radical political rock band, especially so in their early days, Checkpoint Charlie Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 also innovators along with Floh De Cologne and Ton Steine Scherben of a unique German form of rock, blending all sorts of music into a complex and often aggressive rock music. Their debut was very extreme, and very difficult to come to grips with, yet later albums saw more refinement instrumentally, with complex progressive rock styles akin to Oktober, Lokomotive Kreuzberg, et al.
Throughout, even into the 80's, Checkpoint Charlie have proven to be amongst the most uncompromising of Krautrock bands. These were amongst the most dismissably mainstream of "progressive" rock bands from Munich, typical of the mid's I suppose, with a light progressive edge, in the Audience cum Wishbone Ash type of vein.
Andy Marx was previously with the similar but more folky styled Tanned Leather. Their debut is only of marginal interest, having some enjoyable moments. We haven't heard the second! Take note of the interesting cast of guests on both of these. These were an obscure heavy progressive, who almost certainly had their roots in the late's, and were definitely inspired by Jimi Hendrix and early British bands, like Back Sabbath, Tractor, et al. Despite the title of their album, Chicken Bones were not at all mundane hard rock, but were highly creative and often moved very close to May Blitz, early UFO or Cargo, but with lots of nice moves and flowery guitar work-outs.
Basic, and gutsy admittedly, Chicken Bones were a lot better than the reputation that preceded them, and their album became quite a sought after obscurity. Chicken Bones existed in various forms for around a decade, afterwards ending up as the vastly inferior more metal oriented Revanche, then eventually Christian Méry - On Nest Pas Chauvin in the 80's.
Choice are ex-Epidaurus, in fact they were virtually the same band, though Choice played a much straighter type of rock music, starting progressive akin to Eloy and Epitaph, but becoming rather bland as the album progresses. Of very little interest really. More recently they reformed and just to confuse things again as Epidaurus, but this time round with an even blander offering! From Basle, Switzerland, Circus had much success in Europe, with three studio albums and a document of them in concert which we presume to be a bootleg.
Formed inCircus took time to refine and hone their style, a complex rock with jazz and classical angles, and a rather unique instrumentation. Yes, remarkably, Circus played rock music without any electric guitars or keyboards, instead they used processed bass guitar and wind instruments. Their debut was a promising first step, though it didn't quite reveal their potential, being a mite too lyrical.
MOVIN' ON however, has become regarded as their classic, featuring lengthy tracks, with complex arrangements, dynamics, superb instrumentals and unusually crafted songs. Circus, later transmuted into Blue Motion. Marco Cerletti now makes jazz and ethnic fusion, playing the Chapman Stick. Fritz Hauser drums, vibes, percussionMarco Cerletti bass, pedals, string guitar, vocalsAndreas Grieder flutes, tambourine, alto sax, vocalsRoland Frei lead vocals, acoustic guitar, tenor sax. In their Foot Tapper - The Nightriders - A Tribute To The Shadows Riding In The Sky days these were a very inventive and unique band.
Refining their sound for some five years, it took until to be able to release Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94. Their debut originally untitled was an interesting blend of hard-rock and folky sounds, notable for the esoteric violin fronted side-long suite "Am Fenster", of which an edited single version became a surprise hit in both No.
4. Recitative, Song And Chorus - Gilbert & Sullivan, Sir Malcolm Sargent, George BakerJohn Ca and West Germany! Avoiding the temptation to be controlled by the Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 or sell-out, the next album contained even more diverse Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94particularly notable is EINFACHE BEWEGUNGEN - Vojenská Nemocnice - Be Up To Mischief lengthy Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 which strangely recalls Guru Guru with its complex guitars and unusual rhythmic structures.
Later, Georgi left the ranks when the rest of the band wanted to follow a more commercial style, and thus the many subsequent albums not listed here lost the originality of his unique compositional style. In essence the later City without Georgi were a different band.
Formerly as the trio Kluster see entry elsewhereafter the departure of Conrad Schnitzler, the duo of Dieter Moebius and Hans-Joachim Roedelius carried on as Cluster. Actually, much touted as pioneers, Cluster are often quoted as innovators in ambient music, but in reality they were far more wide ranging, and have been important in the shaping all sorts of modern electronic music genres.
As the story goes, only armed with an organ, guitar and some electronic gadgets, Cluster approached Conny Plank with the idea to try and do something different.
Both their debut and second albums are remarkable feats for featuring such basic instrumentation, and the results are as much down to the technical wizardry of Conny as Moebius and Roedelius' instrumental talents. What they came up with was highly original, devoid of standard musical structures or melody - atonal, floating, oozing and pulsing masses of processed sound - a dark menacing industrial music.
After an association with Neu! The next three albums all on the Sky label were much more ambient keyboard based music. An earlier session of Brian Eno with Harmonia lead to two of these albums being recorded together with him.
Although these latter two are not purely Cluster albums, this was their most commercially successful era. Ever the surprising band, after this Cluster made the very different GROSSES WASSER produced by Peter Baumann which found them on more experimental footing again, with one side of shorter varied synthesizer and guitar based pieces each an island unto itself and the second side "Grosses Wasser" itself, a lengthy suite growing out Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 silence with atmospheric Florian Fricke like sustained piano tones, via bizarre crackling electronics onto almost tribal-industrial rock percussives.
After this, Cluster split for a while, with Moebius venturing on to other projects, and Roedelius pursuing a solo career. Momentarily, Cluster reappeared on the scene again inwith CURIOSUM, which is one of the most unusual and restrained of their output, whist being totally strange throughout. Nowadays this is revered as an ambient classic. For such little output, Cobraa's history in fact goes back a long way! They were formed in originally as Flamingos Dub - Desove - Solo Dub Works beat group Q By the time of their debut single "Ride A Pony" they had changed name to Cobraa avoiding confusion with the Dutch band Q65 and they had moved on considerably, with a hard-edged psychedelic style.
This single was their finest moment as the album never really delivered, being a mellow lightweight rock with few progressive touches. Freidel Ahrens organ, synthesizer, piano, Kiss Your Life Goodbye - Krypteria - LiberatioWolfgang Hausmann guitar, vocalsBernd Kliemt drums, percussion, vocalsKlaus Sebastian vocals, Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 Rolf Sondermann vocals, bass, flute.
Code III were never a proper band, but were an impromptu group created for an album dedicated to showcasing the amazing sound characteristics of the Kunstkopf Artificial Head Recording System. A blend of atmospheric electronics with abstract use of voice and effects, via trippy folk and primeval percussives, onto a space-rock burn-out featuring Klaus Schulze at the drum stool, and returning to weird space music at the end.
It all adds up to a remarkable and unique album. On the more avant-garde end of jazz-rock, Contact Trio were an unusual combo, drawing on the new forms of jazz as developed by Wolfgang Dauner in the 60's and mixing in a bit of spaciness and ethnic flair, akin to Dzyan, Giger. Marron or Eberhard Weber. The live recording from presents them as a much more aggressive fusion combo. Quite an exceptional band, of whom we know little, except that they were discovered by Jochen Petersen.
Despite only releasing one album, Cornucopia a Latin term meaning "Horn of plenty" certainly lived up to their name, as FULL HORN is a wondrous cornucopia of delights, containing a Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 complex rock and fusion, overflowing with invention. From the side-long "Day Of A Daydream Believer" onto the closing "And The Madness" Cornucopia ride from the weird psychedelic, via the absurd, onto raucous rock fusion with an ever-unpredictable surprise with each twist and turn.
The very spirit of eccentric Krautrock - a delight! The Cosmic Jokers came into Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 by the whim of Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser, out of impromptu studio sessions made at Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 Dierks studio during springfeaturing musicians from Ash Ra Tempel and Wallenstein.
No such band as The Cosmic Jokers ever existed, and these recordings were never actually intended for release. They were the results of sketches for new ideas, extracts from wild LSD induced jams and the like. Fortunately for fans of Kosmische Musik, music from these sessions gained release by devious means, and the three albums that resulted are quite extraordinary examples of space-rock, fleshing out the Ash Ra Tempel type sound with dense wedges of keyboards and synthesizers.
Here we have the freaky "Galactic Joke" on side 1 with its synthesizer overload and feast of wah-wah guitar, sounding like Ash Ra Tempel crossed with early Hawkwind. In contrast the above two albums had one track per side the third instalment of the series PLANETEN SIT-IN amounts to a patchwork of lots of snippets from various sessions, edited and mixed to flow together, resulting in a disjointed, unpredictable yet fascinating album combining everything from Love Is The Drug - Various - Spin Radio Underground Show and bubbling electronics through to crazed drums and back to the realms of Ash Ra Tempel and Wallenstein.
It does however feature a novel extract of "Galactic Joke" with over-dubbed vocals courtesy of Rolf and Gille. The Cosmic Jokers' project eventually came to a sticky end, when the musicians realised that Rolf-Ulrich Kaiser was ripping them off. Reluctantly Klaus Schulze took the initiative and prosecuted Kaiser, and amidst much publicity the musicians eventually got the rights back. Naturally, as good taste prevails, and due to demand, CD's of all The Cosmic Jokers' and related releases are now widely available.
A very obscure mid's band who made at least one album under the guidance of Toby Robinson. These were unknown until recently rediscovered.
They were a mysterious and lazy relaxed band, generally abstract and moody, often with the accent on Terry Riley styled organ, along with synthesizers and guitars. Apart from some female German spoken text, the mood often reminds of some such avant-garde cosmic Italian acts like Pierrot Lunaire or Franco Leprino, though it does also bridge the realms from Cluster through to Emtidi, on a more esoteric level.
Cravinkel, lead by one Gert Krawinkel, were odd for a German band in the early's, as their sound was often closer to Nordic bands of the era like Culpepper's Orchard, blending in country and folk musics into Anglo-American type rock. We've heard their first album, which was deadly dull. Whether this is true, we're yet to find out! Formed in lateas The Bourbon Street Paraders, and inspired by the American rock-soul-jazz movement i.
A couple of years on, and after numerous personnel changes, but still with a nucleus of original members, a demo tape sent to Metronome gained them a contract. Promptly, they changed name to Creative Rock - a misnomer as their music contained much more jazz! Not unlike early Emergency, but with a good deal more invention and a powerful lead singer, their debut GORILLA was barely Royal Garden Blues - Various - WEA News # 5/94 as German rock, yet despite this it was still rather good, full of complex brass arrangements and a most energetic rhythm section.
