THE HUMANIST ADVENT CONCEPT-INVASION, LP, CANADA, 1979




Utterly fried and totally unique sounding, this pack of Canadian acid heads even added Brainticket-like warnings to trippers
on the sleeve, which is actually anything but hype in this instance.To my ears, what The Humanist Advent concept are getting up to here relates less to the work of any of their Canadian contemporaries and far more closely to the distinctly American spin on structurally disfigured acid rock plied by the likes of The Hampton Grease Band or Oho, with flaming acid guitar extensions twisting and coiling through the discontinuous interstices in their addled arranngements and around big lungfuls of screwball verbiage. Absolutely wicked shit here, and the deeper into the pudding you go, the more deformed it gets.

Any chance for another Canadian band, called Pipedream? Supposedly their second album (Journey?) is filled with Floydian and krauty goodness. Any help would be VERY much appreciated. :)

The blog continues to be fantastic and you guys certainly work hard at it, THANK YOU!
Thanks for the higher bitrates too..definitely helps the sound.

cheers,

William

Any chance for fellow Canadians, Pipedream? They are supposed to be some sort of krautrock/PFloyd hybrid, which sounds like it could be cool.

Thanks for all the great music and the good bitrates! :)

cheers,

William

This band is crazy!! I don't usually if ever get excited about things Canadian. I 've been discovering a weirdness on this site i know was out there but couldn't find. o.n.j.t , max variety show, jacques berrocal..... all of it is great.

I've been looking for this album for a while now and when I came across your fantastic blog and saw it right here I thought FINALLY!
But the link doesn't work. Would it be possible to repost?

Thank you!

I just left a comment about this post and realized that it was a massmirror server upload. I seem to have problems to get into this server. Could you suggest another server where I could get a hold of this album. Like rapidshare or megaupload or any other since I only have problems with massmirror...

I thank you one more time

Dear vdoandsound,
I have this album on my wishlist for a very long time and now I see an opportunity to at least get a digital image of it. I'm only asking if you would post it with a different host than massmirror. Too bad you're only posting with them since I see many interesting albums I'd appreciate as well.

I hope you can find the time to grant me this special request.

Thank you!

I have this on vinyl LP. Intuitively, I pulled it off the shelf and played it after listening to the Sun City Girls "Folk Songs of the Rich and Evil/Exotica on $5 a Day", and discovered that it made perfect sense to follow that album with this one. To my ears, this sounds like a parallel universe Sun City Girls doing their own twisted, meandering version of late 70's style cosmic prog, with that same inscrutable, made-up-on-the-spot sounding style that makes the SCG so distinctive.
