Cream (band)

This article is about the 1960s rockband, Cream is also the name of a British nightclub.

Cream were a seminal 1960s rock band which featured the guitarist Eric Clapton, bassist Jack Bruce, and drummer Ginger Baker.

Celebrated as the first of the great power trios of rock, their sound was characterised by a melange of blues and psychedelia, combining Clapton's mastery of the genre with the airy voice of Jack Bruce and, at times, manic rhythms of Ginger Baker. The drug-addled imagery and ambience of the time abounds. Cream epitomised the high energy sound of the time, anchored in a familiar blues style; from the traditional classics such as "Crossroads" and "Born Under a Bad Sign", through more eccentric imagery found in "Strange Brew" and "Tales of Brave Ulysses", and culminating in the protracted eccentricities of "Spoonful" and "Toad". Both these live tracks feature on the Wheels of Fire - Live at the Fillmore, essentially a completely different album to the In the Studio album, but with the cover differing only in the title, the colour, and the details of the tracks.

The late Felix Pappalardi, producer (and later member of Mountain), sometimes called the 'fourth member' of Cream, is featured heavily on the Disraeli Gears album.

After breaking up in November 1968 the three members of Cream didn't play together until 1993, when Cream was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and played at the induction ceremony. The band has not played together since then although there are plans to rehearse, in early 2005, for several shows at the Royal Albert Hall.

Celebrated as the first of the great power trios of rock, their sound was characterised by a melange of blues and psychedelia, combining Clapton's mastery of the genre with the airy voice of Jack Bruce and, at times, manic rhythms of Ginger Baker.

Cream were a seminal 1960s rock band which featured the guitarist Eric Clapton, bassist Jack Bruce, and drummer Ginger Baker. The contemporary indie rock band Blonde Redhead takes its name from a DNA song. This article is about the 1960s rockband, Cream is also the name of a British nightclub.. Lindsay and Mori and to a lesser extent Crutchfield have remained active in music. Live Cream Volume 2. DNA on DNA, a comprehensive CD chronicle of the band, was released by No More Records in 2004.

Live Cream. DNA's final encore was a cover of Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love." Sadly, this is not included on the CD Last Live at CBGB, released more than a decade later on John Zorn's Avant label. Goodbye Cream. It's a measure of the cult following the band had developed that its final concerts were three consecutive sold-out nights at CBGB. Wheels of Fire - Live at the Fillmore (the tracks on this album were actually recorded live at "Winterland" in San Francisco). Lindsay, Mori, and Wright decided to dissolve the band in 1982. Wheels of Fire - In the Studio. Some live DNA tracks appeared on compilation albums while the band was still in existence.

Disraeli Gears. DNA recorded but one (brief, approximately 10 minutes) album - A Taste of DNA - for Kip Hanrahan's American Clavé label (later on Rough Trade) in 1980. Fresh Cream. Live shows were frequent in this period, but rarely outside of the CBGB - Mudd Club - TR3 circuit in lower Manhattan. The Lindsay-Mori-Wright lineup of DNA developed something of a cult following between 1979 and 1982, but more with art than with rock audiences. Song structures became tighter, briefer, more abstract, and have been compared to haiku.

The music became even more spare and angular, with Wright's bass lines creating a sometimes menacing sound. As Wright played bass and not keyboards, and was the only member of the band really to have any conventional instrumental technique, the change in DNA's sound was dramatic. He was replaced by Tim Wright, previously of the Cleveland band Pere Ubu. Shortly after the recording of No New York, Crutchfield left DNA to form a new band, Dark Day.

The other three bands appearing on this album were The Contortions, Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, and Mars. Within their first year, they had cemented their reputation as a paradigmatic no wave band when Brian Eno selected them as one of the four groups documented on the No New York LP, the first recording to expose no wave groups to an audience outside of lower Manhattan. This lineup of DNA played occasionally at CBGB and Max's Kansas City and recorded one 7" single. After the rapid departure of Stevenson and Cervenka, Lindsay and Crutchfield hastily recruited Ikue Mori - a Japanese woman with little command of English and no drum set - to be DNA's drummer.

This incarnation of the band was very brief, not playing even one concert. Stevenson went on to play bass for Teenage Jesus and the Jerks; Cervenka was the younger sister of Exene Cervenka of X. DNA originally consisted of Lindsay, Crutchfield, Gordon Stevenson, and Mirielle Cervenka, and took its name from a song by another no wave band, Mars. Their music was described as spare, noisy, and angular and was compared to some of Captain Beefheart's output and even to Anton Webern.

Rather than playing their instruments in a traditional manner, they instead focused on making unique and unusual sounds. Formed in 1978 by guitarist Arto Lindsay and keyboardist Robin Crutchfield, DNA were inspired by a promoter who wanted a band composed of first-time musicians. DNA was a short-lived but influential New York rock band, associated with the no wave movement.
