Electric Funeral - The Wild Performance (1970)




I recently went to Stigmate Records  (a good record dealer in Geneva) in seek of new Swiss treasures. Mauro Bozzi aka. "Bozz", the soul of the shop, showed me quite an interesting LP. An obscure live recording, only released in the 90's which I never heard of ! I was getting more and more excited, seeing that the copy I was holding was numbered #14 out of 200 !!! After a quick listen, I new I needed it for the blog. Really, that's big heavy raw hard rock reminding me of Danish band "Moses". Unfortunately, an annoying persistent crackling noise shows up from the beginning to the end... The fact that it could have been recorded on a cassette explains everything. But anyway, it makes it more raw ! I haven't been able to locate where the concert took place but surely in the French-speaking part of Switzerland (Romandie).

  11. Hi Paul, I understand that you are probably having a tough time now that they closed down megaupload. I was too late to download this specific album, if at all you could make an alternative upload that would be awesome, I've been looking for this album everywhere!
    Thanks for the brilliant music!
