The Crazy World of Arthur Brown
« Reply #1395 on: February 22, 2021, 05:52:03 AM »


I attended this concert in San Francisco in 1968, and didn't know whether it was a joke or serious. Little did I know it was neither. He was 19.

Here he is 4 years ago (67)...1st song is intro to his "HIT" Fire that follows. Brown had big influence of Metal Bands. Alice Cooper thinks of him as the father of the genre.

"My childhood was during the end of WWII and the ensuing poverty. My family was riven with what would now be called PTSD. There was huge tension, and many arguments. One day when I was about 12, my father, concerned at the effect this was having on me, introduced me to a man who taught me to clear my mind. From that period on, I was always interested in looking behind what the media and society presented as “reality.”

So when writing the first Crazy World album, I wrote songs about an inner journey, where the main character looked around at the world, saw a nightmare, and turned inwards. He encountered various entities on his way to find the essence of fire, sort of an image for “spirit.” At first it was a journey through his own mind, presented in the form of opposites—for instance, the God of Hellfire, and the God of Pure Fire (in the song called “Come and Buy”). At this time the rock audience was not used to such imagery. So, I began to use costumes to delineate the characters, like fire helmets, robes and masks, which led to experimental lighting to create the necessary moods and locations. In my case I was fortunate that Vincent Crane (keyboard player) and Drachen Theaker (drummer) had huge musical imaginations and could help express these things in arrangements.

As a new kind of imagery, we met a lot of resistance and violence. So I would recite small poems and monologues between numbers on very disturbing themes. I would also do comic duets with Crane about the Queen, police brutality, or drug busts. At one gig, the audience began to charge the stage. When I appeared in my make-up and robes, with flames pouring five feet above my head, wielding a genuine double-headed steel Viking axe, they changed their mind!" Arthur Brown

I’m very fond of that song....and not sure why.  I find it uplifting.

The Seekers were the first truly big export band from Oz. They were huge in their day.

Do you think that forms of underground, of counterculture, exist around us?

A. Yes of course. There is graffiti, music, association networks, cooperatives, all of them typically countercultural. The 15M wave was countercultural and had a global dimension. The movements of 2011 can also be thought of as cultural revolutions. Radical solidarity networks, clandestine dining rooms, hacktivists, movements such as 15MpaRato, the green and white tides. In the global boom of feminism today we also see tensions typical of a counterculture that is becoming hegemonic. Vegans, animal rights defenders, degrowthers, extinctionists, Fridays for Future, etc. Also, those that are concerned with global diasporas. Today they are, and are going to be, the countercultural revolution that is pending.
