Catapilla - Changes
Catapilla
Changes
LP | 1972 | EU (Trading Places)
21,99 €*
Release:1972 / EU
Genre:Rock / Indie
Jazz-infused prog-rock act Catapilla began in London in 1970, with saxophonists Robert Calvert and Hugh Eaglestone, bassist Dave Taylor (of pop act Edison Lighthouse), drummer Malcolm Frith, guitarist Graham Wilson and expressive clarinet player, Thierry Rheinhardt; vocalist Jo Meek was quickly replaced by her sister, Anna, whose gutsy gasps gave the band its noteworthy difference, along with the woodwinds and brass. Former Millionaires’ bassist Cliff Cooper brought the group to the attention of Black Sabbath’s manager, Patrick Meehan, who got them a contract with Vertigo; like their self-titled debut, second LP Changes has four freaky tracks, but here the band is completely reborn, with bassist Carl Wassard, drummer Brian Hanson and keyboardist Ralph Rolinson backing Rheinhardt and Meek. Throughout, Rheinhardt’s searing sax blows a musical foil to Meek’s mercurial vocal moods, drifting between atmospheric interludes and brooding bursts on “Reflections,” while “Charing Cross” gets its point across by subjecting Meek’s fragmented vocals to heavy delay. A super esoteric and ultra-rare relic from the stranger end of prog.

LP | 1971 | EU (Trading Places)
19,99 €*
Release:1971 / EU
Genre:Rock / Indie
Jazz-infused prog rock act Catapilla began in London in 1970, with saxophonists Robert Calvert (who later worked with Daevid Allen in various Gong spin-off projects) and Hugh Eaglestone, bassist Dave Taylor (of chart-topping pop act Edison Lighthouse, and later active in hard-rock group, Liar), along with drummer Malcolm Frith, guitarist Graham Wilson and clarinet player/flautist, Thierry Rheinhardt; original vocalist ‘Lady’ Jo Meek quit early (to work with the keyboardist, poet and science fiction author, Julian Jay Savarin) and was duly replaced by her sister, Anna, whose gutsy gasps gave the band its noteworthy difference, along with the woodwinds and horns. Former Millionaires’ bassist Cliff Cooper (who had worked with producer Joe Meek before founding Orange Amplifiers), brought Catapilla to the attention of Black Sabbath’s manager, Patrick Meehan, who swiftly got them a contract with Vertigo, Philips’ prog subsidiary; this self-titled debut has four freaky tracks, including the side-long closer, “Embryonic Fusion.”
