Aardvark’s only album was released in 1970 on Decca’s short-lived progressive imprint Deram Nova. The music is keyboard-centric proto-prog in the vein of Egg, The Nice, Greenslade, Deep Purple, and The Doors.
Extremely rare French funky prog early 70's LP on the little, but famous French "Egg" label. A mix of dark feel, psych progressive action, jazz, funk music with acidy guitar,swirling organ, vibraphone …Vocals are in English…
The gentle madness of Paul Driessen is everywhere in his animated shorts — editorial, color palette, sound effects — but mainly it’s that line. For 30 years he’s been honing an affect that at first blush seems positively arthritic. Just watch the pictures move for a few seconds, though, and you’ll see grace, fluidity and tight control in those wavy outlines. His goofy and lackadaisical disregard for the niceties of human anatomy leads his characters to set out for destinations where not every body part arrives at once. His outlines dissolve in a turmoil of gaps.
Two CDs of cast-offs, rehearsals and muck-abouts from the Peter Green era. This was the period when Fleetwood Mac was shuffling off its purist's blues incarnation in favour of Peter Green's sophisticated and eerie pop compositions. Included are tentative stabs at Drifting (here named Fast Talking Woman Blues) and much of the sessions for the wonderful Then Play On - the Working For Madge jam, Underway, Coming Your Way, Oh Well and so on.
