PIP PROUD

A BIRD IN THE ENGINE

SUPERIOR VIADUCT


Format: LP
Cata No: SV062
Barcode: 857176003621
In the late ’60s, Pip Proud recorded two of the oddest records
ever to come out of Australia—Adreneline & Richard
and A Bird in the Engine—before vanishing into obscurity
for the better part of three decades. Often called the “Australian
Syd Barrett,” Proud actually released his second
album in 1969, a year prior to The Madcap Laughs, and
developed his indigenous psychedelia in virtual isolation.
A Bird in the Engine is even more rare than his debut.
From the extraordinary “Eagle-Wise” to the remarkable
title track (which includes the uncredited performance of a
friend hitting a cardboard box with a microphone), Proud’s
unrestrained genius is laid bare, a delicate tension of simple
melodies and maddening form.
While other compilations of Proud’s music have been
released in recent years, this is the first time A Bird in the
Engine has been reissued in its original format. Recommended
for fans of Alvarius B., Donovan and Jandek
