Somlo was previously a circus performer and in future concerts he could be observed playing while walking on stilts and entertainment often came at the expense of quality music. To his credit, he also plays quite credible tenor sax and his singing voice is exceptionally powerful and unique.
Also, as a composer his rare tunes on future LGT releases shine amongst the rather mediocre material the band has collectively churned out over the years. Poetic justice? Probably, but Album) a sad waste of an exceptional talent. Musically, this album represents zero interest in any style, let alone as Prog, with one notable exception. The featured remake of an earlier piece "Ringasd El Magad" stands out and probably one of the best tunes the band has ever produced.
The driving, throbbing rhythm complemented by excellent drumming and sensational guitars is in stark contrast with the rest of the material.
No, I couldn't bring myself to purchase this album, but managed to get a copy of that tune alone, courtesy of an overseas friend.
For content and music it almost hurts that I can't go below 1 star, but that outstanding tune I referred to is a 5 in my books.
Strange world we are a livin' in All musicians here are skillful, the tunes however reveal that this band was lacking in common ideas. A bit like the same cart is pulled by horses in opposing directions The end result is quite reasonable Rock-Blues Locomotiv - Zook - Music From The Accumulator (CD that represented a promising, fresh approach on the Hungarian music scene.
Unfortunately, this line-up was unlikely to last long enough to mature and a split has duly occurred after the second album. Apart from lead vocals, he also played saxes, often two at the same time - not unlike Dick Heckstall-Smith of Colosseum. PRESSER on the other hand played credible keyboards and added vocals reminiscent of a neutered sausage on a "bad hair day" His compositions nevertheless are thoughtful and the lyrics represent dark and meaningful poetry - if only written by the drummer's wife, Anna ADAMIS.
When permitted to shine, BARTA on the other hand played his guitars with almost unprecedented fluidity that could be likened to Holdsworth's ability on the instrument - albeit not in the same style. LAUX on his Ludwig glass drums often sounding like Locomotiv - Zook - Music From The Accumulator (CD Bonham with the associated heaviness faithfully contributed to whatever the others dished out in compositions. To this day he retains a legendary reputation as one of the finest drummers of the time.
References to King Crimson, Gentle Giant tend to intrigue me as none of the musicians were even slightly inclined in such directions. Review by friso Prog Reviewer. Somehow I was always interested in this band, I simply don't know why. I had high expectations for this band. Locomotiv GT had a short progressive period during the Ringasd el magad period.
After that they changed their sound to the funk presented on this live album. This live album has no material from their progressive period.
Locmotiv presents itself as a professional band with skilled musicians on keys, guitars and drums. The vocals are quite Album). The tracks sound a bit alike, but are all acceptable. Playing live shurely isn't a problem for this band. Among the last tracks of the album are two piano-oriented songs that are quite nice, but again nothing special. This is only for fans of Locomotiv Gt and people who desperately want to have special funk music.
Good live performance, talented band, but no progressive music is to be found here. Two stars. The music is LGT at their best.
Opening with the sound of cowbells not the musical kind, cowbells that are worn by free-roaming Album) in Hungarian plains! The title track sees the band returning into hard riffing and soloing, even though it's dominated by soothing tremolo'd rhodes.
In its 5 minute playtime it foreshadows the typical Locomotiv GT sound for years to come: percussion driven groove-based jazz-soul-rock. The rest of the album is also of good quality, though no individual songs stand out - it's all a good mixture of funk, blues and hard rock - so you won't find much prog rock on this record, Locomotiv - Zook - Music From The Accumulator (CD, just good honest funk-rock.
After their American tour ofthe guitarist Barta Tamas decided to stay in the states, and so the band's future was uncertain. But they pulled through, releasing a string of solid albums throughout mid-to-late 70s, albeit very distant from their heavy roots. We have a totally animated opening track "Cirkusz" driven by percussion work, and lightning fast guitar and organs trading licks. There is even a doomy repetitive section in the middle with falsetto vocals that resemble Magma!
Another highlight is "A semmi kertje" which totally resembles early raw Gentle Giant what with the high vocals, rhodes piano, and vibraphone. It sound like Presser Gabor gave a listen to "Peel the Paint" when he wrote this. The acoustic guitar solo shows though that Barta Tamas could have play note-for-note with Steve Howe in this chicken-picking style. The other tracks are quite plain, driven by simple blues-based riffs, but this does not make them subpar.
As a whole, the album sounds very well balanced between their more progressive endeavors and their raw blues-rock sound! Copyright Prog Archives, All rights reserved.
