Obscure Music Friday: The Crazy World of Arthur Brown


"I am the God of Hellfire and I bring you......Fire". With those immortal words and with its associated hook, Arthur Brown and his band, The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, forever burned their way into our consciousnesses. Well, maybe not forever because now he is  mostly forgotten. Too bad! The song "Fire" is an all-time classic. Give it a listen and also check out the theatrics in the video, which is how he used to perform on stage, complete with real flames. He also used to be lowered from the heavens on a winch to begin the act. Alas, I never got to see him live!
