The Petards: The Petards (LP, 180gram Vinyl)

1 Vinyl LP (180 Gramm) mit DinA3-Poster. 11 Einzeltitel. Gesamtspieldauer 34:57 Min.
  • Zweiter Baustein unserer Reihe mit 1:1 Vinyl-Wiederveröffentlichungen der vier Originalalben der Petards.
  • Seinerzeit zählten die Petards zu den populärsten und erfolgreichsten deutschen Rockbands.
  • Das zweite Album der Band aus dem Jahre 1968.
  • Neuauflage – neu gemastert und im Originalcover mit zusätzlichem Einleger, einer Kurzbiografie der Band in Deutsch und Englisch sowie einer Reproduktion des original DIN-A3 Posters! 

Hatte Bernd Varell die erste Platte produziert, so übernahm im Auftrag von Liberty Records Deutschland nun Sigi Loch die Rolle des Supervisors. Loch gründete später ACT Records, eins der renommiertesten europäischen zeitgenössischen Jazzlabels. Vermittelt wurde die Zusammenarbeit mit Sigi Loch von Lippmann+Rau.

Im Studio erwiesen sich die Petards als erfahrene Profis mit großer Bühnenerfahrung. So spielten sie die Single Pretty Liza in nur 30 Minuten ein (benötigten für die B-Seite Rainbows And Butterflies allerdings 14 Stunden ...). Allerdings wurde beim zweiten Album noch nicht der technische Aufwand wir bei den späteren Veröffentlichungen betrieben. Soundtechnisch orientiert sich ‚The Petards’ an das seinerzeit erfolgreichste Album der Band, an ‚A Deeper Blue’, das mehr als 100.000 Mal über die Ladentheken ging.

Bear Family veröffentlicht dieses Album erstmals wieder im Original-Artwork auf 180-Gramm-schwerem Vinyl mit zusätzlichem Einleger, einer Kurzbiografie der Band in Deutsch und Englisch sowie einer Reproduktion des original DIN-A3 Posters! Diese Schallplatte ist die zweite von insgesamt vier geplanten Vinyl-Wiederveröffentlichungen aus der Blütezeit der Petards.

The Petards

THE PETARDS IN A FAST COURSE

They loved making music and shared a common vision and the will to realize it. They revealed surprising abilities and talents with which they almost lasted for a few years for themselves and for the entire Upper Hessian region.

She achieved many of her early goals: Well over 1000 performances, 100,000 sold copies of the 1st LP, repeated tours abroad, No 1 hits, LP release in Japan etc. Only the biggest wish: they were denied a number 1 in the USA. The story of the Petards is a very unusual success story, even if the Schrecksbacher firecrackers never became intercontinental rockets...


They not only had more ideas than most of their rock colleagues, they also implemented them permanently themselves:

They offered a sovereign stage choreography.
They designed their own stage clothes and had them sewn.
They were the first band in the country with an ingenious lightshow (incl. strobe lights). The individual parts for this were purchased from the Kassel-based electrical trade.
They were the first band to distribute stickers with their own logo (and other promotional material anyway).
They built up a network of 380, mostly really active fan clubs, which made them as popular as they are today only possible via MTV/Viva.
They repeatedly exchanged the concert stage with a theater stage
They organized the legendary Herzberg festivals, at which German pop mainstream met the underground for the first time.
To top it all off, Arno delivered his incomparable drum solo every evening at his shooting range with two bass drums (New!).

Eventually they were overtaken by the times, the spirit of the times, the growing competition (with hair, musicians & managers & connections), sometimes even overtaken: For some years they set the bar very high for other bands. They consistently fulfilled their demands, which many an alternative Krautrock/Underground band failed to meet:

They were absolutely independent.
They wrote their own plays.
They were their own road managers for a long time.
The man on the rhythm guitar was the manager.
The man on bass was the fan support.
They designed their own logo, posters and record covers themselves.
They were also as professionals their own promoters, organized many appearance from A - Z themselves.

Actually, this band shouldn't have had any success, because they were carrying around some handicaps. It speaks for them that they took them away effortlessly for years:

The Petards had no manager, no connections in the music business, no role model to copy.
They were, albeit ambitious, yet isolated boys from the deepest province.
Two band members were objectively seen very moderate musicians.
Two band members wore toupees from the beginning because of their sparse hair growth. (A phenomenon that is still rare in rock history.)

With this CD edition of their total output, 25 years after the end of the band, a late happy ending is delivered.

Let's go back to the beginning....

TOP Qualitätspressung

Sehr schöne Idee die Petards Alben neu aufzulegen ( auch die Original Poster sind dabei) 1 A Pressung was will man mehr . Die Petards sind eine der meist unterschätzten Gruppen aus jener Zeit.
Kaum zu Glauben dass sie International nicht so erfolgreich waren ,bei der Musikalischen Qualtät. Ich hoffe dass ( PET ARTS Album) kommt auch noch auf Vinyl . Danke Bear Family !!

kurz - knackig - auf den Punkt

die Remakes von uralten Tonträgern find ich super !
Von meiner Jugendzeit damals
existieren die meisten LPs oder MCs nicht mehr.
Die wenigen Übrigen, die noch überlebt haben,
wurden ein Opfer des Zahnes der Zeit.
