Pepe Deluxe - Queen Of The Wave
A wonderfully flamboyant concept prog pop opera based on a visionary 19th century novel about the lost civilisation of Atlantis. It’s peculiar themes and genre-busting spirit is further bolstered by the use of incredible instruments. But the Tesla coil and Edwardian amp pale in the august company of the ‘The Great Stalacpipe Organ’, a lithophone made of stalactites in a cave system in Luray, Virginia. Add to this mischief a myriad of collaborators, dashing moustaches, over ripe B-movie flourishes and you have something simultaneously retro and futurist, bonkers and brilliant. Its cleverness and humour burst like springs from an overstuffed rococo couch. Splendidly indulgent.
