Music Millennium

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.
