Product Description

 Karakorum-Prison Bitterness-UK Prog Rock-NEW LP

British Underground Rock band Karakorum played an intense eastern tinged Progressive Rock between 1969-1973, characterised by a hypnotic trance like use of rhythm. An issue of the UK rock paper Sounds reported that "Keith Moon is raving about Karakorum" after Moon attended an Alexis Korner concert with Karakorum as support. Many people including their Manager expected Karakorum to hit the big time and considered them as near geniuses and absolutely unique. Its hard to see why they didnt break through as they were hugely popular live and played zillions of gigs. Its possible they were simply too leftfield for the mainstream and refused to compromise their complex inward gazing prog style. No music by Karakorum was ever issued until Seelie Courts releases. Their very specific style may take repeat plays to reveal its excellence, and for some it may be just too leftfield.

Prison Bitterness (Vinyl, LP, Album, Limited Edition)

The only surviving 1969 studio demos of this important underground band. Keith Moon raved about them, they were known for their live reputation. Karakorums sonic inner space inevitably conjures up images of heavy cannabis and marijuana usage. The band lock into darkly introverted grooves, with complex patterns, eastern influences, and left field lyricism and vocal, heavy guitar led tracks and the use of wah-wah. They were ultimately uncategorisable, poetic, and this album needs multiple plays to connect to.
