Arthur Brown

One of the most electrifying one-shot artists of the '60s, British singer Arthur Brown briefly set the charts alight in 1968, as well as thrilling audiences with his theatrical performances, which saw him wearing helmets of fire and outlandish costumes. His debut album was surely one of the most left-field commercial successes of the late '60s, if not of rock history. In addition to topping the British charts (and reaching number two in the U.S.) with his brilliantly demonic single "Fire," the self-proclaimed god of hellfire actually scored a Top Ten LP with his 1968 debut. Unveiling Brown's demented, fire-obsessed lyrical visions and swooping, theatrical vocals, it showcased his band's manic, agitated psychedelic sound, which was anchored by incendiary drumming, Pete Townshend's production, and an organist who could be best described as Jimmy Smith on acid. Brown's original band broke up in early 1969; in the early '70s he released several albums with Kingdom Come, which saw him pursuing a maddeningly obscure and less exciting brand of art rock. He recorded off and on after, with an additional flash of fame springing from his role as a priest in the film Tommy. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

saw him in the early 90's in a small club in NYC with the original Mothers of Invention band minus FZ of course. The grandmothers as they were known by that time played as the backup band with Arthur Brown first. Together they played the entire crazy world album. The grandmothers then went on to play a ton of original mothers tunes. It was absolutely one of the greatest shows I've ever seen to date

Agree that he is much more than a one hit wonder. This album is amazing though- the Brown-Crane combination was really something.

Gotta get this album, sounds ahead of its time. His backup band later became Atomic Rooster, which kicked a** - good prog hard rock.

I am old enough to have seen him live and with the amount of fire on his head it was a wonder he stayed live!

Certainly not. He shined new light on the purpose of music rather than the image it portrays.

Certainly not a one hit wonder, he's produced a few fantastic albums and the original LP with Fire on is a great whole album.
