UK, 1973, rock in opposition
Henry Cow – The Henry Cow Legend: So what do you put on your leg ends? Socks, of course. Not only is this a mind-blowing debut album, but the first track is a masterpiece of complexity. The world’s first taste of Henry Cow is them experimenting on their audience’s ears, treating them like little white laboratory mice, the result being a rocket launch straight to Nirvana. The sounds of Canterbury cling to the music here, but soon the band will shrug that off and establish their own unique sound.
