Biography

Old Music Encyclopedia Picture    "One of the most electrifying one-shot artists of the ’60s, British singer Arthur Brown briefly set the charts alight in 1968, as well as thrilling audiences with his theatrical performances, which saw him wearing helmets of fire and outlandish costumes. His debut album was surely one of the most left-field commercial successes of the late ’60s, if not of rock history. In addition to topping the British charts (and reaching number two in the U.S.) with his brilliantly demonic single “Fire”, the self-proclaimed god of hellfire actually scored a Top Ten LP with his 1968 debut. Unveiling Brown’s demented, fire-obsessed lyrical visions and swooping, theatrical vocals, it showcased his band’s manic, agitated psychedelic sound, which was anchored by incendiary drumming, Pete Townshend’s production, and an organist who could be best described as Jimmy Smith on acid." – Richie Unterberger[1]
