    Liner Notes »

Liner Notes (French):

THE KINETIC... un groupe dont on va beaucoup parler.
THE KINETIC se composent de:

Andy Mowbray: le chanteur portant éternellement un blazer rayé très britannique.
Bob Weston: guitar solo, qui voue à sa guitare un véritable sacerdoce.
Geoffrey Capper: guitare basse, qui ne peut se déplacer sans avoir dans ses poches quelque chose à manger.
John Christopher Sze: le batteur de descendance chinoise surnommé "Le Silencieux" car il fait très rarement entendre le son de sa voix.
Michael Humby: l'organiste le cadet du groupe qui ne jure que par Jimmy Smith.
Ils sont cinq. Cinq anglais voulant enregister en France (il fallait bien que cela arrive puisque les artistes français vont depuis un certain temps déjà enregistrer en Angleterre).

Ils composent eux-mêmes les paroles et la musique de leurs chansons et ils ont la particularité de ne jamais savoir ce qu'ils vont jouer lorsqu'ils pénètrent dans un studio d'enregistrement. The KINETIC attachent beaucoup d'importance à la "couleur" et à la sonorité de leurs instruments, sur ce point d'ailleurs, Bob WESTON, le soliste du groupe met fréquemment une heure à travailler un son.

Liner Notes (English):

THE KINETIC... a group which is going to be much talked about.
THE KINETIC consist of:

Andy Mowbray: the singer who forever wears a very British striped blazer.
Bob Weston: lead guitarist, who infuses his guitar with a veritable godliness.
Geoffrey Capper: bass guitarist, incapable of going anywhere without having some food in his pockets.
John Christopher Sze: drummer of Chinese descent, nicknamed "The Silent One" as he very rarely makes the sound of his voice heard.
Michael Humby: organist and youngest in the group who swears by Jimmy Smith.
There are five of them. Five Englishmen who wanted to record in France (it had to happen as French artists have been going to record in England for a while now).

They write their own words and music to their songs and they have the peculiarity of never knowing what they're going to play when they enter a recording studio. The KINETIC place a lot of importance on the "colour" and the sound of their instruments; in fact Bob WESTON, the soloist of the group, frequently spends an hour working his sound.

pleasant but average with one outstanding track
Review written by vojislav (, March 2nd, 2005

I came across a copy of this back in the eighties from a sailor who picked it up in Singapore where loads of French pressings seem to have been dumped. I played it together with other items I picked up at the same fair - the Arcadium and the Katch 22 LPs (remember it was the 80's and we were still making dicoveries. At the time I liked the Kinetic LP best out of these primarily owing to the 'Suddenly Tomorrow' track which really stood out. There's other pleasant but not as good stuff on the album but it finishes on a low note with a tedious instrumental jam as if the band was running out of ideas (check also the running time of the album). Most of the album tracks are on their 2 French EPs anyway; perhaps the best option is to pick up the one featuring 'Suddenly Tomorrow'. Other album tracks worth listening are 'The Hall of the Viking' and 'Letter to Rosetta'. Don't fork out the money for the original LP before you've heard it.
