SKU 05-SR 475LP
Until Cuneiform’s exhuming of their archives in 2001, Arkham were one of the lost legends of early 70's European progressive rock. They were formed in Bruxelles in 1970 by keyboardist Jean-Luc Manderlier & drummer Daniel Denis, along with a bassist. They were probably the most popular progressive rock band in Belgium during their lifetime, playing numerous gigs & festivals, but the band eventually broke up in 1972, when Christian Vander invited Daniel & Jean-Luc to join Magma. Jean-Luc stayed for some time, performing on their Mekanik Destructiw Kommandoh album, while Daniel only stayed a short while, before eventually returning to Belgium and eventually founding Univers Zero.
An all instrumental trio/quartet (late in the band's life, they added electric flugelhornist Claude Deron), their sound was comparable to an original, continental take on Canterbury style bands such as Soft Machine, Egg & Caravan.
Despite their popularity & influence, due to their early demise no recordings were released in their lifetime. This is the first release on vinyl of the material that Cuneiform released in 2001.
