Pip Proud BIRD IN THE ENGINE Vinyl Record

Pip Proud BIRD IN THE ENGINE Vinyl Record
Vinyl LP repressing. In the late '60s, Pip Proud recorded two of the oddest records ever to come out of Australia-ADRENALINE & RICHARD and a BIRD IN THE ENGINE-before vanishing into obscurity for the better part of three decades. Often called the 'Australian Syd Barrett,' Proud actually released his second album in 1969, a year prior to THE MADCAP LAUGHS, and developed his indigenous Psychedelia in virtual isolation. A BIRD IN THE ENGINE is even rarer than his debut. From the extraordinary 'Eagle-Wise' to the remarkable title track (which includes the un-credited performance of a friend hitting a cardboard box with a microphone), Proud's unrestrained genius is laid bare, a delicate tension of simple melodies and maddening form. While other compilations of Proud's music have been released in recent years, this is the first time a BIRD IN THE ENGINE has been reissued in it's original format. Recommended for fans of Alvarius B., Donovan and Jandek.
