33. "AN ELECTRIC STORM" - THE WHITE NOISE (Island-Kaleidophon ILPS9099) ------------------- --------------- --------------------------- The people who banned "Je t'aime" really should listen to "My Game of Loving " on this LP,and hear real breathing effects! This LP is recorded in a technique described as Storm Stereo,and combines Singers,Instrumental- ists and complex electronic sound,and is very much to my taste. Indeed,to quote the sleeve notes,"emotional intensity is at a maximum". I'm not exactly sure who the group "White Noise" - who provide the basic songs - consists of,but there is a very impressive list of credits on the tech- nical side. They include Production organiser and Stereo Effects by David Vorhaus,B.Sc.,Dip.Elec. ;Paul Lytton on percussion,and vocals by John Whitman,Annie Bird and Val Shaw - who presumably constitute White Noise. The electronic sound realisation is by none other than Delia Derbyshire and Brian Hodgson (well-known for his 'Dr.Who' electronic effects) both from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. This is the sort of electronic music i have long desired to see on record,and indeed have often felt like making one myself. I am very glad to see that Island and Kaleidophon have had the ingenuity and entreprise to record this and issue it. Full marks all round; this is that electron- ic music really is all about. The two marathon tracks -"The Visitation" and "Black Mass:Electric Storm in Hell" are literally out of this world in terms of electronic and stereo effects. (B.W.)
