Kim Fowley - Outrageous lp (Munster/Vinilisssimo)


"Reissue of this 1968 wild masterpiece and third album by one of rock's true mavericks, Kim Fowley. Fowley played with many bands throughout his career -- Mothers Of Invention, Family, Soft Machine, Cat Stevens and Manfred Mann, to name just a few. On 180 gram vinyl, housed in a gatefold sleeve. "Though its Rent-a-wreck homage to the Doors, the Mothers and Jimi Hendrix is immensely satisfying in a Teddy & His Patches sort-of-way, it wasn't the music on Outrageous which still leaves 21st century listeners gasping. No no no, the genius of this 1968 album is all contained in the dizzyingly portentous and truly whacked-out vocal delivery which Fowley chooses to foist upon us, And it's a delivery which, I might add, entirely pre-empted '70s Iggy Pop and must have (at least temporarily) kicked Jim Morrison's dick into the dust. And hearing the various members of Steppenwolf trying to keep up with Fowley's heart attack vocalese is mesmerizing in itself. And all this at a time when iconoclastic recording acts were commonplace enough to be almost expected." --Julian Cope
