Fifty Foot Hose - Cauldron

Limelight [1967]

Sorry it's been a short while... Was in San Francisco and LA for a bit pretending to be a musician...

Here we have the first album by San Francisco's original psychedelic noise machine.
These guys spearheaded an experimental rock movement that would inspire the likes of Chrome and Throbbing Gristle.
Musically, we have a culmination of classic San Francisco jam music, jazz, psychedelia, and home-made electronic noise instruments, all piling atop one another in the best possible ways.
Think of this as Krautrock from the States...
The jazzy noise parts make me think of MITB (No, that's not far-fetched) while the soaring space theremin gives me flashbacks of Acid Mothers Temple...
And you...?
