Star Spangled Banger - Star Spangled Banger (1973)

EAC | FLAC TRACKS+CUE+LOG+Covers | 342 mb+3% recovery

Review from forcedexposure.com:
Star Spangled Banger was a short-lived studio project that resulted in a sole, self-titled album and single in 1973. With the record company closing soon after its release, the album was quickly deleted.
Principal songwriter John Brownrigg originally hailed from Liverpool and had played in several bands during the Merseybeat boom of the early ’60s — as his own brick on the Cavern Club wall of fame attests. The band were put into the studio with engineer/producer Gil Matthews.
Armed with a stack of sound effects records, the album was recorded at odd hours and resulted in an eclectic mix of progressive rock, protest songs and ballads — with a healthy dose of humor (witness: ‘Fancy Underpants!’). Added to this mix are: explosions, backwards tapes, crazy keyboards, nuclear explosions, crashing aeroplanes and fuzzed-out psych guitar.

"Star Spangled Banger was a short-lived studio project that resulted in a sole, self-titled album and single on the Melbourne Havoc Records label in 1973. With Havoc closing soon after its release, the album was quickly deleted and, over the years, has grown in stature, becoming one of the rarest Australian records ever. We are happy to rectify this problem with our deluxe CD reissue of this hugely enjoyable mix of English-flavored progressive rock (Family, Cressida), reflective piano ballads, with a hint of Bonzo Dog DooDah Band like lunacy. Principal songwriter John Brownrigg (vocals, guitar), Ron Walters (vocals, piano, organ) and drummer Paul Doo formed Star Spangled Banger in 1972 from the ashes of their former band, The Sect. Brownrigg originally hailed from Liverpool and had played in several bands during the Merseybeat boom of the early '60s -- as his own brick on the Cavern Club wall of fame attests. Signed to Havoc in late 1972, the band were put into the studio with engineer/producer (and soon to be Aztec) Gil Matthews. Armed with a stack of sound effects records, the album was recorded at odd hours (in between Matthew's day job at Havoc and his night-time one as new drummer for the Aztecs) and resulted in an eclectic mix of progressive rock, protest songs and ballads -- with a healthy dose of humor (witness: 'Fancy Underpants!'). Added to this mix are: explosions, backwards tapes, crazy keyboards, nuclear explosions, crashing aeroplanes and fuzzed-out psych guitar. The title track, released as a single, is a long lost progressive classic and we have added a previously-unreleased edit of it as a bonus track. Digitally remastered by Gil Matthews, including a 24-page booklet with rare photos, liner notes by Ted Lethborg and a recent interview with John Brownrigg."
