I remember hearing about Atomic Rooster in the early 70s, but don't recall hearing them. If Rolling Stone had given them a little more press, perhaps my impressionable younger self would have bought some records, which sparsely populated local record stores. About all I knew was that they were Brit prog rock guys, and once had Carl Palmer (drummer for ELP) as a member. The organist, Vincent Crane, wrote the songs and was the only constant member. Everybody else came and went, including Chris Farlowe (in the last clip below), who had been a notable British R&B singer, who went on to Colosseum before joining Atomic Rooster. The guitarist in the first two clips, John Du Cann, plays a Tele with a pickup that I don't recognize. He was a pretty limited soloist, with not many ideas that he develops, and had fairly sloppy, yet aggressive technique. It sounds more Punk to me than Prog Rock. The guitarist in the clip below is named John Bolton. He plays a Les Paul in a fairly lyrical way. He looks like Jeff Beck, but without as nice a poof of hair atop his head. Chris Farlowe on vocals.
