Thread: Hammond Organ-driven bands/albums

  1. #1

    Hammond Organ-driven bands/albums

    Any Hammond organ bands you can recommend? The only stipulation is that the tone I'm looking for is ala VdGG, Yes, "Thick As a Brick" sound. That grand, sometimes dark thing.

    Go.

    Par Lindh Project, Ars Nova, and Nexus come to mind among modern bands.

    Focus of course.

    Not sure if they would be considered Hammond driven, but Beardfish uses a lot of Hammond especially in their earlier albums.

    no tunes, no dynamics, no nosebone

    I have some Egg. Odin didn't *quite* fit the sound, but I *love* what I'm hearing with Fields & Rare Bird is def' interesting. I'll look into the others.

    "The Sound of 65" by the Graham Bond Organization is fairly seminal for British 'proto-progressive' blues rock.

    Dave Greenslade plays some cool organ stuff on the Collosseum albums, and, of course, in Greenslade.

    If you like ELP, try Germany's Triumvirate.

    Vincent Crane kicks ass in Atomic Rooster.

    Try "Galactic Zoo Dossier" by Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come. Some God-pounding heavy organ there!

    A recent album Ive discovered, "Templars: In Sacred Blood" by John Zorn via the Moonchild Trio with John Medeski, has some beautifully haunting organ work throughout.

    Don't forget that pre-ELP, there was The Nice.

    The Spencer Davis Group, with Steve Winwood, produced some great stuff in the 60's too.

    Could it be more Hammond driven than this:



    Another suggestion:

    I'd throw in Uriah Heep too (to go along with Deep Purple).

    Yeah, probably Time Crunch is Niacin's best. I never heard only their recent album.
