Electric Funeral-The Wild Performance-70s hard-rock/proto-doom-metal-NEW 2LP

ELECTRIC FUNERAL

The Wild Performance (2LP)
SOMMOR / 2LP
SECTION: HARD-ROCK, METAL, STONER > 70's & 80's
Cat. No. : SOMM042


Ear–splitting hard–rock / proto–doom–metal from the early 70s!

Electric Funeral were a pioneering Swiss hard–rock band who sadly never registered any studio recordings at the time.

Formed in the late 60s by Edi Hirt (drums), Pierrot Wermeille (bass), Alain Christinaz (guitar) and Dominique Bourquin (vocals), they were influenced by bands like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. Famous for their loud (they played behind giant stacks of Marshall amps) and powerful shows, their sound was too heavy–sounding for a regular label to offer them a contract.

"The Wild Performance" is made of private live & rehearsal tapes recorded in 1970, very raw and lo–fi but it’s the only testimony of their brutal sound. First released in 1991 as a very limited (now heavily sought after) LP, here’s an expanded edition with newly remastered sound and four killer bonus tracks, taken from reels and tapes recently found in the band’s archives. These tracks were also recorded in 1970 except for "My Destiny" (1973). Sound is still lo–fi but slightly better than the original "Wild Perfomance" tracks, especially on the killer "You Can Help" (proto–punk á la Electric Eels!), "My Destiny" and the alternate version of "To Be One".

"Electric Funeral should be mentioned right next to their country companions such as Toad, Haze, After Shave, and Pacific Sound." – Klemen Breznikar (It’s Psychedelic)
