Sex - Sex & The End Of My Life (1971-72)
Both albums by Canadian heavy progressive rock band on one CD from 1970 & 71.
Both albums are ultra-rare and the music is comparable to Elias Hulk or Ellison
with sledgehammer drums, furious fuzzy lead guitar and wasted vocals.
By the second album the group had expanded to a four piece and become a
little more progressive but still were as heavy as hell.
A French-Canadian band from Montreal, Quebec, whose lyrics are English.
Both their albums are now rare. The first leans very much towards hard rock with
sledgehammer drums, thundering rhythm, furious guitar leads and wasted vocals.
There's some nice woodwind on 'Come, Wake Up!',
some pleasant mouth harp on 'Try' and some fuzzy guitar on 'Night Symphony' and
'Love Is A Game'; but overall the menu's heavy-handed bluesy hard rock.
The first 45 was culled from this album. All the material was penned by Gratton,
Rousseau and Trépanier. The lyrics are very much in the spin of their name,
particularly the final cut. For hard rockers only!
Prior to their second album, Pierre Ouellette was added to the line-up.
'The End Of My Life' was more progressive than their first effort.
The vocals are in the same wasted style as their first effort,
but the instrumentation is usually more experimental and less heavy-handed.
Their second 45 was taken from this album and probably comprised its best tracks.
