Lab Overview

"Cauldron is the legendary psychedelic jazzy rock and electronic album by Californian band Fifty Foot Hose. Fifty Foot Hose formed in San Francisco in 1967. Like few other acts of their time, they consciously tried to combine the contemporary sounds of rock with electronic instruments and avant-garde compositional ideas. They were one of the most radical groups of the psychedelic era, and their experimentalism still has the power to shock and surprise even now. Incorporating Theremin, siren, audio generators, and other various electronic effects, as Cork Marcheschi, the band's original bass player, had developed an acute interest in the dadaist/futurist experiments of composers like John Cage and Edgar Varese. David and Nancy Blossom brought both psychedelic and jazz influences to the band. Cauldron, their only album, was released in December 1967, including 'Fantasy', 'Red The Sign Post', and 'God Bless The Child', a Billie Holiday cover. Fifty Foot Hose's music leans more towards White Noise, Silver Apples, and especially United States of America, rather than the flower power movement. After only one album, the proto-cyber psych outfit passed as quickly as they came. Scene author Ralph J. Gleason wrote: 'I don't know if they're immature or premature.' History has proven them to be the latter. Today, the original album is very collectable and considered a touchstone of avant-garde rock music." - Aguirre Records
