|The Enid Aerie Faerie Nonsense Limited Heavyweight Vinyl LP
Madfish Release Heavyweight Vinyl Of The Seminal 1977 Album From The Enid.
Under the tutelage of Robert John Godfrey, The Enid have avoided all of the obvious traps – the learned/received riff-based music which distinguishes so much rock, the well-trodden harmonic progressions, familiar melodic lines and stock-in-trade rhythms.
Originally released in 1977 on EMI, from the offset The Enid always promised to be different, at a time when punk rock was exploding all around them, The Enid were writing and performing large-scale, dynamic and atmospheric instrumental pieces inspired by myth and fantasy. Aerie Faerie Nonsense remains one of the most inventive of the progressive albums of that era, with elaborate arrangements, memorable melodies; outstanding, delicate yet bombastic musicianship. The album features part I & II of the band's most celebrated piece 'Fand'.
