The sole self-titled album by English progsters Chillum was in fact an offshoot project of famous psychedelic icon Second Hand. They shared three members – George Hart, Ken Elliott, Kieran O’Connor – with the former band, giving birth to a more experimental act. The record originally saw the light of day in 1971. The LP was supposed to be the third Second Hand’s album, but apparently the members decided to change the band’s name. Their heavy swinging approach was in the end similar to such contemporary luminaries like Atomic Rooster, Leaf Hound and Arthur Brown’s Kingdom Come. A jam album with lots of roaring percussion and an impressive organ to make big sound. Ken Elliott (Keyboards, Mellotron, Organ, Vocals), Kieran O’Connor (Drums), Tony McGill (Guitar) and George Hart (Bass).
