Release Info: BLACKLIGHT BRAILLE-ELECTRIC CANTICLES OF THE BLACKLIGHT BRAILLE, LP, 1981, USA
This was the first outing under the Blacklight Braille moniker for these self described "fringe rockers", formerly known as as the hippy theatrical troupe cum band called Bitter Blood Street Theater. Jim posted both of those back in '08, as well a two late 80's/early 90's BB outings, but this here is the one that you've been waiting for, even if you didn't know it. Comprised of just two side long suites, Side A is highly reminiscent of the sorta DIY hippy sci-fi electronics and nutty narrative spieling encountered on Ian MacFarlane/Violet Lightening's albums and is a helluva lot of fun, but the real psychotropic meat swinging around here is the completely bonkers track "At A Rock Night Spot" that fills all of side B with blasting cosmic voids and balls out space rockin' in the mode of Melodic Energy Commission, The Happy Dragon Band and Mars Everywhere, all book-ended by yet more wonderfully fried blather. Thanks to blog friend Steve for this gem!
