#TrackoftheDay: “Fire”

The Crazy World of Arthur Brown
UK (1968)

The Crazy World of Arthur Brown

I have no idea where I originally got it, but I used to have this on a 45 single. Probably still do somewhere in my stacks of stuff. I don’t even remember what the B-side was. I do remember being fascinated by the song, though. Because it sounded gloriously mental.

I share with you this obviously lip synced “performance” of the song on Top of the Pops from across the pond so you can witness the true stage madness of the group, which I only discovered much later. That, and so you can marvel at his flaming helmet.
