Pete Brown & Piblokto! ‎– Things May Come and Things May Go, but the Art School Dance Goes on Forever (1970)

Things May Come and Things May Go, but the Art School Dance Goes on Forever is the first of two albums — both released in 1970 — by English quintet Pete Brown & Piblokto!

Issued on EMI’s Harvest imprint, the title-track sets a lightning pace with blazoning fuzz-tones and soaring harmonium amidst cyclonic percussive assaults — an arrangement echoed against the viciously sung pogo-pulse of “Walk for Charity, Run for Money.”

Elsewhere, muted contrasts arise in the fluttery, flute-laced “High Flying Electric Bird” and the laid-back twang of “Golden Country Kingdom.” The pile-driven “Then I Must Go and Can I Keep” — replete with fuzzed-out bass, bendy licks, and melodrama aplenty — is another highlight.
