WHITE NOISE - AN ELECTRIC STORM (1969)

OBSCURO TOP-NOTCH
ARTIST`````WHITE NOISE
ALBUM`````
AN ELECTRIC STORM
GENRE`````ELECTRONIC, PSYCHEDELIC, OBSCURO
, EXPERIMENTAL, "ROCK"
YEAR````````1969


WHY?
One of the most advanced electronic albums of its age (see Bruce Haack also), White Noise represents the true free spirited beginnings of pop culture being demolished and sampled, looped and twisted in ways nobody had heard before. A true obscuro album which stands out for its inventive approach to pop music.

Info from
Gabriel Colucci

This LP showed the first use of Peter Zinovieff first British synth the EMS VCS3, before Pink´s, Eno´s, Tangerine´s or Twine´s! :) ... A must have!

WHO WERE THEY?

The White Noise project had its origins in the BBC's Radiophonic Workshop, whose previous claim to worldwide fame was the theme music to Doctor Who.

By the time White Noise's debut album, An Electric Storm, arrived in 1969, the Moog synthesizer had already started to make tentative appearances on pop records by the likes of the Monkees and Simon & Garfunkel. But no other pop or rock record before (or since) had been so painstakingly assembled using mainly homemade equipment and tape recorders.

Delia Derbyshire - Love Without Sound (1969) (The White Noise Project)



Info from youtube user audiolemon

Delia Derbyshire is well known for her work with the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and her help in creating the Dr.Who theme. Of all the BBC Radiophonic musicians I've heard I always found Delia's music to be more aesthetically mature than that of the others. While many were content to create mathematically structured enharmonic noise she looked for the ghost in the machine, creating haunting, off kilter and often sexually charged music. This track is from the 1969 The White Noise - Electric Storm LP.

REVIEW BY BOOMKAT.COM:
An Electric Storm is justly renowned among techno boffins as one of the first albums to fuse pop and electronic music before the advent of the Moog synthesizer. But you don't have to be versed in the language of sine waves and oscillators to enjoy this mostly delightful and hugely inventive album.

Thank you so very much. I have been looking for this for quite sometime. It is completely impossible to find anything from Delia here in the States except for the occassional BBC comp. This is awesome.

white noise? this sound familiar to me, the band is a little bit old, however in the playlist there's one or two songs that I'm sure listen in a moment during my childhood.
