In 1970 Pink Floyd experimented on stage with a long suite that The Amazing Pudding was mentioned. When it was decided to record it was help of the young Scottish arranger and composer Ron Geesin. Of his hand came packages for a twenty stubborn choir, a brass section and a classical cellist. The recordings were difficult, which led to the working title Argument In E Minor For Band And Orchestra. In response to a newspaper article about a pregnant woman with a plutonium-powered pacemaker, eventually became the name Atom Heart Mother figured out for the whimsical suite that covered the entire first side of the lp. The concept of band with Orchestra was already in vogue in 1970 (Deep Purple, Moody Blues) but that made the avant-garde bombast of Atom Heart Mother no less groundbreaking. The band members themselves would prefer not to be reminded (David Gilmour in 2001: ' God, it's damn ") and that's a shame because also the remaining material, including strong songs as Fat Old Sun and Summer Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast 68 and the drawn-out (a breakfast ritual set to music, complete with crackling bacon in the pan and whistling teakettle) have endured the test of time fine. Just like the iconic cover of Storm Thorgerson which the splendid Friesian cow lulubelle III us brutally her backside shows.
