DAVID PRITCHARD "Nocturnal Earthworm Stew" [CD]

1976 - Rock from Canada
Stock:  Yes
Record Label : Lion
Original Year : 1976
Detailed Description
An incredible pioneering electronic album recorded in the early 1970's, from the first Canadian artist signed to Island Records. Serious headphone music made under the influence of Stockhausen, John Cage, Ornette Coleman, Stravinsky, Frank Zappa, Weather Report, Charles Ives and others-and with a sound that's often compared to that of early Eno and/or (depending on your preferences) the first two Kraftwerk albums. Indefinable compositions integrate the earliest of portable synthsizers (ARP 2600 and EMS AKS) with acoustic instruments (violin, cello, dulcimer, electric violin, electric guitar), found sounds (short-wave radio transmissions and a summer thunderstorm) and random objects (instant coffee jar, scissors, chopsticks, among others)-and they also have special contributions from Nash the Slash (a.k.a. Jeff Plewman) and Martin Deller of famed Canadian band FM. Sixteen-page booklet has an abundance of photos, track by track information, and the odd history of these seminal recordings told by David Pritchard himself.
