CONCRETE RUBBER BAND - Risen Savior - 1974, Radioactive


First ever CD release for this massively-rare1974 release on the Missouri-based American Artists label (AAS1164), of which only 2 or three copies are known to be exist in private collections. Despite the song titles, this is actually a strange and unusual rockalbum which just happens to have religious undertones. Thereís lots of organ, fuzz guitar, male and female lead vocals and masses of electronic embellishments. This is Christian psychedelia at its most extreme, with synthesised bubbling lava pits, frequency oscillations, distorted sci-fi vocals and short-wave static patterns. The album is littered with some of the most extreme fuzz guitar youíll ever hear,loads of scatty electronic effects, and even a flying saucersequence right out of Dark Side Of The Moon. The whole project has a dense, murky home-made feel, and Duncan Long, the manbehind the synths, guitars and song writing is now a successful scifi author.The album was recorded in one of the bandís living rooms on a 2-track tape recorder. Only 500 copies were pressed, and most of these were given away when the album failed to realise commercial success. The odd track has been comped in the past, but this is the first time that this extraordinary album has been available on CD. Recommended Track Listing 1. Risen Savious 2. What Shall We Do? 3.
