  • Ireland's answer to the Incredible String Band, Dr. Strangely Strange engaged in the same type of psychedelic acoustic music with folksy arrangements. With traditional instruments like penny whistle, fiddle, harmonium, and mandolin, Dr. Strangely Strange was more solidly rooted in melody and structure than the group's flaky Scottish counterparts. Produced by British modern folk guru Joe Boyd, Kip of the Serenes is built around simple and repetitious melodies occasionally interrupted by stream-of-consciousness musical and lyrical diversions. This simplistic approach would be abandoned with their 1970 follow-up, Heavy Petting, which saw their first partnership with electric guitarist Gary Moore. ~ Dave Sleger
Professional Reviews
Record Collector (magazine) (p.82) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The title of the opener, `Strangely Strange But Oddly Normal' explains some of their everlasting charm and deserved cult status, for this album is a rich and rewarding mix of both."
