Bodkin

Some organ heavy proto-doom satani-psych for you courtesy of Bodkin and their 1972 self-titled album. Bodkin were from England. I don't really feel like writing much today, sorry. Get this though, and leave a comment or something.

I sense a heavy hearse download session this coming weekend. I am currently downloading the first series of Mr Show and will catch up and leave comments all over this motherfucker as soon as that's done.

Aesop-
Thanks for all the good tunes. I was shocked to learn you were the man behind the funeral agency. I was a big fan of your label. Any chance it will be active again?

Aesop said...

Thanks, Tobias, but no. It became too expensive and time consuming. I'm in school, two bands, a job, a kid..

This album is a must for all fans of early Procol Harem (I fact I am emailing the link to a friend who is a big-time PH fan). They defintely have the PH organ sound down pat, but if anything I like Bodkin better because the lyrics are downplayed in favor of the music. I always hated P. Harem's sappy, pretentious 'poetic' lyrics.

Again, thank you so much for posting another obscure gem!
