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

1 Vinyl LP (180 gram) with DinA3 poster. 11 tracks. Playing time approx. 34:57 mns.
  • Second volume in our series with 1:1 vinyl re-releases of the four original Petards albums.
  • At that time the Petards were one of the most popular and successful German rock bands.
  • The Petard's second album from 1968.
  • New edition - newly mastered, come s with the original cover and additional inserts, a short biography of the band in German and English and a reproduction of the original DIN-A3 poster! 

After Bernd Varell had produced the Petard’s first LP record, Sigi Loch took over the role of supervisor on behalf of Liberty Records Germany. Loch later founded ACT Records, one of the most renowned European contemporary jazz labels. The cooperation with Sigi Loch came into fruition through the recommendation of producers and promoters, Lippmann+Rau.

In the studio the Petards proved to be artists with a high expertise, professional musicians with great stage experience. So they recorded the single Pretty Liza in only 30 minutes (but needed 14 hours for the B-side Rainbows And Butterflies...). However, for the second album, the technical effort was not yet as immens as in later productions for future releases. In terms of sound, 'The Petards' is based on the band's most successful album at the time, the debut LP 'A Deeper Blue', which sold more than 100,000 copies.

Bear Family releases this self-titled 2nd album with the original artwork and on 180-gram heavy vinyl with additional inserts, a short biography of the band in German and English as well as a reproduction of the original DIN-A3 poster! This record is the second of a total of four scheduled vinyl re-releases from the heydays of The Petards.

Artist description "Petards, The"

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 !!

 
From: Gerhard Petzold 2018-07-14 14:25:26

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.
