Brave New World

Impressions On Reading Aldous Huxley (Lp)

Label: Wah Wah Records

Format: LP

Genre: Psych

Out of stock

Conceived as a studio project and conceptually inspired by the world of sci-fi novelist Aldous Huxley, Brave New World was created by Reinhart Firchow (recorders, flutes, ocarina, Stylophone, percussion, vocals), John O'Brien-Docker (guitars, organ, percussion, vocals, wind chimes) and Herb Geller (flutes, cor anglais, saxophones, organ). They where aided by Dicky Tarrach (drums, percussion), Lucas Lindholm (bass, bass fiddle, organ, piano) and Esther Daniels (voice). Irishman John O'Brien-Docker had previously played on Die City Preachers and Marcel, and also recorded as Inga & John - Inga was, of course, Inga Rumpf of Frumpy fame. He also played with Dagmar Krause and Anthony Moore, who would later be known as Slap Happy. Reinhart Firchow had also been around for a while and would later form Kaarst. Herb Geller was an accomplished jazz musician who had been playing and recording in several jazz outfits since 1954. Their album, originally released on Vertigo in 1972, featured an eclectic mixture of styles, blending medieval music, folk, electronics, jazz and rock in pure krautrock eclectic lore in the line of Annexus QuamAchim Reichel or Tomorrow's Gift.

First ever reissue, housed in a glossy laminated gatefold cover reproducing the phenomenal original artwork and an insert with notes, and it's limited to only 500 copies!

"Now that we actually live in the future of yesterday, it's hard to imagine the power that the book Brave New World had when writer Aldous Huxley first launched it on the world – a generation-shaping sense of ideas that had plenty of champions and celebrations, including this legendary German album from the early 70s! The set's every bit as compelling as you'd expect – not a clunky rock opera take on the tome, ala some of Rick Wakeman's work – but instead this beautiful batch of tracks that really hits the coolest, most creative side of the German prog scene – especially where it intersects with the changes in jazz! As part of that, reedman Herb Geller turns in loads of wonderful work on flute, alto, soprano sax, and tenor here – often these floating, spacey lines that are similar to his sound on the Rhyme & Reason album – mixed with a typical prog-like range of other instruments, including lots of keyboards, guitars, percussion, and effects – all used in shifting ways, and beautifully recorded by Thomas Kukuck."
