JANE : Fire , Water , Earth and Air : 1974
Jane is a German progressive rock Krautrock band that was formed in October 1970 in Hanover, Germany.
Jane is one of my favorites ever Bands . I adore them .Their Psychedelic Progressive sound and their lyrics
have make me travel in the 70's smoking and drinking . This band is unknown to America and to Europe and this is a shame .
Great musicians coming from the 70's , hypnotize us , making noise confonding Hard Rock - Psychedelic with the Classic music , escapes far away , great Guitars , out of time and place Keyboards .
This is a Masterpiece Progressive , Hard Rock , Psychedelic album .
Playing a melodious synthesis of symphonic hard rock that has occasionally been compared to Pink Floyd, Hanover Krautrockers Jane can trace their origins back to the late sixties psychedelic band Justice Of Peace.
Singing in broken English, which helped create passionate effects , a heavy expressive bluesy sound emerged with blistering Les Paul solos and slabs of Hammond organ backdrops that was consolidated by Peter Panka's almost hypnotic oscillating drum beats that would characterize Jane's music for almost 40 years.
Keyboardist Werner Nadolny returned in 1976 for Jane's expansive 33 minute symphonic progressive rock masterpiece "Fire, Water Earth & Air".
Featuring Layers of Hammonds, Moogs, mellotrons and synths, it was unquestionably Jane at their creative zenith and the Jane album that would hold the most appeal for progheads.
Nadolny would split once again after the completion of "Fire, Water, Earth & Air" and was appropriately replaced by Eloy keyboardist Martin Weiczorke for an extensive tour that spawned another coup de grace for JANE resulting in the stunning "Live At Home" double live LP replete with a cover of a Martian landscape snapped by the Viking Mars lander.
Martin Hesse / Gibson Thunderbird bass, backing vocals
Werner Nadolny / organ, strings, Moog synth, piano
Peter Panka / Ludwig drums, vocals
This album, along with the "Live at Home" album are the 2 most essential albums by Jane. Whats more, it is on the legendary "Brain" label.
Full Progressive Rock , Hypnotic , sensitive , and many times Hard Rock making love with oriental keayboards .
