Henry Cow - Western Culture CD

The final Henry Cow album, & along with their first, this is my favorite of their many great works. This stuff is the ultimate in humanly impossible to play works, but there they are playing it! One side of Tim Hodgkinson's composerly insanity (no wonder he gave up composed music for the improvised life! How does one top this?) and one side of Lindsay Cooper's fine works. Fred Frith provides guitar and bass & Chris Cutler turns in one of his greatest drumming performances. You know that the voting is crooked if this didn't get them voted into the rock and roll hall of fame! Classic R.I.O. hyper complex rock - highly recommended!

Ha, ha, ha ...loved the comment on the Rock n Hall of Fame. Incredibly enough my mom(!) got me this lp back in the 70s! She went on a trip to NY and i told her to ask for whatever she could find from a list of groups i'd given her (lifted from a Heavy Metal comics magazine which had an article on prog groups!). What a shock! I had heard The Mothers and other 'complex' rock groups but i had to pick my jaw from the floor with this one. Recommended to anyone interested in ground breaking music this side of Stravinsky.
