Outstanding! Sounds very similar to really Lucifer's Friend/Asterix stuff. Deep Purple goes sufing with Uriah Heep while ELP films the whole. Very good. If you like early Deep Purple, Uriah Heep or any of the other hard driving bands with good guitar and keyboards you'll like this.

1972's Hoodoo Man found Birth Control recording for CBS, which obviously helped them get even better exposure than when they were on Ohr. Their previous album Operation was on Ohr and it certainly seemed like the odd album on that label, given that label was dishing out stuff like Tangerine Dream's Zeit, and at the same time, Operation, which was like a German Deep Purple with prog trappings and not typical for the label. The band, in my opinion, released an even better album with their CBS debut, the album being reviewed here. They got themselves a new keyboard player, Wolfgang Neuser, who included Hammond organ, Hohner Pianet, and even some synthesizer. I really dig his organ playing, where you hear the clicking sounds of the organ. I really think this is one of the finest example of hard rock with prog rock trappings. "Buy!" starts off almost in Black Sabbath territory with heavy guitar work from Bruno Frenzo, but then you get those progressive passages, and a great synth solo. Vocal duties are from Bruno Frenzo and drummer Bernd Noske. "Suicide" is a wonderful jazzy piece with lots of great Hammond organ and electric piano. "Get Down to Your Fate" continues showing the hard rock side of the band, with equally heavy organ and guitar work. "Gamma Ray" was the hit on the album, apparently didn't become a hit until 1975, and for some reason was popular at discotheques in Germany. It's a rather extended piece with an extended percussion solo, and nice organ work. Still the song doesn't sound particularly disco (this was 1972, after all). The title track is by far the most progressive thing on the album, especially the classical influences and pipe organ.Read more ›

My first introduction to the band was them doing an atrocious version of 'light my fire' on the 'who is there?' album (unreleased on c.d) vocals were never the bands strong point, but as a decent heavy rock band they were pretty good. This is an improvement on the excellant 'operation' due to the lack of brass. It is down to the basic four man line up and is all the better for it. At times a little Uriah heep 'get down to your fate' and 'buy' but that's no bad thing. The standout is the jazzy 'suicide' which is the best thing they ever recorded. 'Gamma ray' is a classic with great wah-wah/vocal interplay and the only downside is the title track overstaying its welcome. If you like this then get 'operation' and the progressive 'plastic people' A fine example of early seventies kraut/rock.
