Arkham Eve's Eventful Day (Part 3)
Arkham Cuneiform 2002

Arkham are an early 70's prog band that featured keyboard player Jean-Luc Manderlier who would later join Magma, drummer Daniel Denis who would also move on to Magma as well as Univers Zero, and bassist Patrick Cogneaux. This all-instrumental trio (keyboards, bass and drums) never actually recorded any official album, although tapes of their many shows and rehearsals between 1970-72 resulted in the compilation of this CD, released in 2002. The sound is more Canterbury than proto-RIO.

For reasons I don't understand, Uriel's recordings were later issued under the name Arzachel.

Magma Köhntark (Live 1975) [Remastered]
Live (Remastered) Seventh records 1975

6121925171c85.jpg

Founded by Christian Vander in Paris, France in 1969, disbanded in 1983. Magma created its own influential subgenre of prog rock, called 'Zeuhl'. The band doesn't clearly fit in any other progressive subgenre, though avant-prog might be a good fit. "Zeuhl" is typified by swirling riffs in odd time signatures, theatrical choir arrangements (in their own made-up language), heavy and distorted pulsing bass guitar, bombastic and minimalistic (sometimes both at the same time), dark and brooding, adventurous and angelic, jazzy or classical. http://www.progarchives.com/subgenre.asp?style=11

Electric Masada is one of John Zorn's more recent Masada units, a true downtown supergroup formed in the mid 2000's to combine raw power and manic speed, an improvisational edge and lyricism. One of the most astonishing ensembles led by Zorn in this period.

Calypso King & The Soul Investigators - Ma-Gee
Calypso King & The Soul Investigators Ma-Gee
Soul Strike! Soul Fire 2001

WPRB listeners have all been conditioned to panic every time we hear this song; the signal that something has gone terribly wrong - again.

So I thought I'd use the song as the foundation for a mashup, attempting to undo some of that negative conditioning. (And, I'll admit, also to jolt you all a little bit. 😉)
