Big Block 454: Bells & Proclamations

Posted on the 08 April 2011 by Hctf @hctf

Big Block 454

There once was a time that Manchester Madness ruled the world. Bits of it survive until this day, firmly underground, weird and with the typical Northern England attitude. You like it, and if you don't - well, fuck off.

Big Block 454 have been at it since the Eighties, coming up with tunes that could be descirbed as UK folk having a fight with vintage Krautrock. Remember when Genesis were still prog? This trio is a bit like that, telling stories without Hollywood endings.

Throw in a bit of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop found sounds approach and you get an idea what their latest album Bells & Proclamations sounds like. No problem digesting this if you are into Gong and The Residents. These guys are serious and fun.

Big Block 454:
Alex Stone: guitar, accordion, kantele, portable harmonium, serious vocals Colin Robinson: 6-string fretless bass (oh yes), corrupted vocals, shehnai, xaphoon, tablas, junk Mark Joell: keyboards, tumbi, shouting through cymbals, funny vocals, funny handshake
