Boomkat Product Review:
Originally released in 1980, 'Fairy Tale' is haunted, electrified prog, with flute, muted beatbox clicks and more synth wobbles than the BBC Radiophonic Workshop.
Joel Vandroogenbroeck was a Belgian multi-instrumentalist who founded experimental rock band Brainticket and worked extensively with Swiss eccentric Bruno Spoerri. 'Fairy Tale' is a quirky, short composition that sounds as if it's improvised around a simple click track - echoing flute twists around acoustic guitar plucks sounding as if the pied piper of Hamelin is about to hypnotize the town's children.
Properly wacky progxotica that nudges itself into the Finders Keepers/Ghost Box axis without drifting into parody.
