Henry Cow - Unrest (1974)

The second album from this British band.

The band was a quintet with a lineup of guitars, drums, bass, xylophone, bassoon, saxophone, oboe, recorder, piano, clarinet, violin, organ and vocals.

A guest added extra vocals.

This band is probably the most avant-garde of all the band from the original RIO scene and concert. 

The music is at times impenetrable.

Just as on the debut album which I did not rate particular highly.

This album clocks in at forty minutes and I am still a bit baffled about their all out avant-garde. Most of the music is pretty much anti-melodic and anti-establishment.

There are some half-good stuff here. 

But this album is still only a decent album and just that.
