Atomic Rooster Atomic Rooster on 180g LP
The legendary Atomic Rooster line-up featuring Vincent Crane and John DuCann and their self-titled comeback album from 1980. Atomic Rooster - one of the finest examples of the progressive rock/heavy metal hybrid - rate alongside Deep Purple and achieved what very few heavy rock bands did at the time - two Top Ten singles.
In 1969 keyboard player Vincent Crane and drummer Carl Palmer, left The Crazy World of Arthur Brown and founded Atomic Rooster. Their debut self-titled album was issued in 1970 and became a respectable success, but Palmer moved to Emerson, Lake & Palmer, who became one of the supergroups of the '70s. Vincent Crane continued with John DuCann on guitar which is still regarded as the band's definitive line-up.
After the band's third album, In Hearing of Atomic Rooster, DuCann left the group, but then in 1979 the sensation that was Crane and DuCann came together again and this, their second eponymous album was issued in 1980 ten years after their debut. Featuring the first-rate Rooster cuts "In the Shadows," "Do You Know Who's Looking for You?" and "Lost in Space." Gatefold 180g heavyweight album with all lyrics.
