27 Nov Pete Brown & Piblokto! – Things May Come And Things May Go, But The Art School Dance Goes On Forever – Mini-LP Papersleeve CD Replica
Here’s a perfect example of the adventurous creative spirit that drove so much of popular culture in the 1960s. Best known as Jack Bruce’s collaborator on hit songs for Cream, Pete Brown was also well-known as an inventive poet in England’s Beat underground, and also has been an important figure on the European music scene for many years, after he left his first group, The Battered Ornaments, by personal disagreements with Chris Spedding.
Brown set up his next band in 1970, Piblokto!, whose debut album, presented here, has the longest title known to rock historians. His facility with language and hauntingly surreal, witty imagery is put to fine use on this diverse collection of songs containing jazz tinged rock alongside laid back folk melodies, all augmented by Brown’s questioning and poetic lyrics. An album that to this day is regarded as one of the finest of the Progressive era, Things May Come And Things May Go, But The Art School Dance Goes On Forever is definitely a wonderful and highly affecting piece of prog-rock that stands as the best thing Piblokto! ever put on tape.
