ARTHUR BROWN – UNHINGED. Live in Concert. Sunday 28 April – Evening 6pm

ARTHUR BROWN – A TRUE ROCK & ROLL LEGEND . . .

The Crazy World of Arthur Brown’s 1968 single Fire, reached number one in the UK Singles Chart and Canada, and number two on the US Billboard Hot 100 as well as its parent album The Crazy World of Arthur Brown which reached number 2 in the UK and number 7 in the US. Following the success of the single Fire, the press would often refer to Brown as “The God of Hellfire”, in reference to the opening shouted line of the song, a moniker that exists to this day. The band’s debut singing Fire on Top of The Pops still remains one of the most talked appearances in the show’s history.

In the late 1960s, the Crazy World of Arthur Brown’s popularity was such that the group shared bills with the Who, Jimi Hendrix, the Mothers of Invention, the Doors, Small Faces and Joe Cocker, among many others. Arthur also formed the pioneering band Kingdom Come, followed by a varied solo career as well as associations with Hawkwind, the Who and Klaus Schulze.

Arthur is a significant influence on a wide range of musicians in numerous genres because of his operatic vocal style, wild stage persona and often experimental concepts; he is considered to be a pioneer of shock rock and progressive rock and has had an influence on both electronic and heavy metal music. Alice Cooper had this to say: “Without Arthur Brown there wouldn’t be an Alice Cooper.”

Arthur Brown still records albums and performs at festivals and in clubs throughout the planet to critical acclaim. In 2005 he won the ‘Showman of the Year’ award from Classic Rock magazine, receiving the award at the Classic Rock & Roll of Honour Awards ceremony.

We are absolutely delighted that Arthur will be joining us for two new and unique live concerts. An unhinged Arthur Brown will be accompanied by multi-instrumentalist and Noisettes founder member DAN SMITH, whose song, Don’t Upset The Rhythm (Go Baby Go) also reached number one in the charts.

Happy Trails.
