MAD CURRY – s/t album (1970)
Mad Curry was founded in 1970 in Leuven, prostate Belgium. They disbanded after only a year leaving a legendary album and a single. Itâ€™s hard to describe their music, store but that other legendary band VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR with Peter Hammill is a good reference and not only because they both had the same remarkable line-up: sax, organ, bass, drums and both had a phenomenal lead singer.
The big difference here between Mad Curry and VdGG is that Mad Curry had a female vocalist, and her talents are best put to us in the killer opening track, “Men”, a staggering stomper that equals anything done by Soft Machine or any of those cats. Admittedly, though, the rest of the album falters some, but like I said, you shouldn’t download this one because of the whole album — just the album opener.
