Young Flowers

(Scott)-This is a John N contribution, sounds great from what I read......this is another one that yer uncles is not exactly familar with, but, fortunately, Ol' John N has provided us with a good write up.......procede, and this will be one my playlist this week!

Julian Cope said Young Flowers’s "The Moment Life Appeared” from their first album was "magical.”  He also praised their "totally full on freakout style” and pointed to them as precursors of Krautrock.

Take Warning: The Complete Studio Recordings [Cherry Red] is the first time all of Young Flowers’s recordings have been brought together and anthologizes both their albums, their non-album debut single, contributions to the film soundtrack Quiet Days In Clichy, and a trio of live tracks which show how raw they could be. This is the Denmark of 1967-1969 at its freakiest.

Young Flowers formed in summer 1967. They headlined Copenhagen’s Festival of the Flower Children in September 1967.

The first Danish hippy band, the first Danish rock band to sing in their native language, and the first Danish band to play the States; they were pioneers.

Members later played with the legendary Culpepper’s Orchard and Savage Rose. They immediately hit big with debut album Blomsterpistolen (Flower Gun), recorded as the soundtrack to a surreal TV series. A trio, and although influenced by Cream and The Jimi Hendrix Experience, their intense music had an experimental edge. They set Walt Whitman's poetry to music. The definitive, band-approved, collection, Take Warning: The Complete Studio Recordings, is a tribute to a unique band.

  2. Great band. There is some live stuff and odds and ends floating about here and there on other blogs if anyone wants to pursue them. I don't have this particular album so thanks very much.
