“Fire”

This one hit wonder from the 1968 album The Crazy World of Arthur Brown was a radio main stay for quite some time. Before there was Kiss or any of the other makeup bands of the 70’s we had the one and only Arthur Brown. Before Alice Cooper and all his elaborate stage shows antics we had Arthur Brown and his band the The Crazy World of Arthur Brown.

Fire is a psychedelic rock song running about 2:45 minutes long. The videos from this #1 single in the United Kingdom and Canada really give you a great prospective of how bizarre Brown’s stage shows were back then with all the makeup, costumes and psychedelic themed images and stage props. The main instrument of destruction in the song is Vincent Crane’s Hammond electronic organ. So for your listening pleasure we give you the self proclaimed “God of Hell Fire” Arthur Brown

  1. Adrian your right about the new single. It is pretty good and it shows us that Brown is still having fun making music. It’s also good to see that he still goes out and does some live shows.

  2. Great Post.

    Arthur Brown had a new album out, last year I think, called Zim Zam Zim. It’s really good. You should check out the video for the single from it, The Unknown. He’s in his seventies now, living in a yurt and bouncing on his granddaughter’s trampoline, evidently still living in his crazy world.
