Group 1850 - Mother No Head - Their 45s (CD)
Regular price €9,90
Though they were a product of the beat group age, Group 1850 were the Netherlands' first progressive band, in every sense of that word. Constantly changing, constantly evolving, Group 1850 were musical extremists on a do-or-die mission to explode all expectations. Sparks flew, ideas flared, feedback swirled through misty nights, the dead walked, skeletons danced, flies buzzed, mountains fell, words rained fire from angry purple skies.
Group 1850 raised all kinds of hell. My god, were they good. Although the group made two deservedly revered albums, 'Agemo's Trip To Mother Earth' (1968) and 'Paradise Now' (1969), some of their best work can be found on their singles, where their borderline insane hyper-creativity was focused into highly-concentrated, radically potent three-minute songs like 'Misty Night', 'Mother No-Head', 'Zero', 'We Love Live (Like We Love You)', 'Don't Let It Be (We Have to Do It Now)', and the magnificent 'Have You Ever Heard'.
The A- and B-sides of all their singles can be found on this unique CD in their original mono mixes, mastered from the original tapes. A number of previously unreleased demos are also included. 'Mother No-Head: Their 45s' comes packaged in a breathtaking digipack cover with rare archival photos, memorabilia and liner notes by Ugly Things Mike Stax. Exclusively restored dynamic 24 bit remastering from the original master tapes.
