Mammal’s Merry Memories: Argent – Hold Your Head Up
I’ve been playing some of the old vinyl LPs we’ve been using as drinks coasters at Metal State. We drink BIIIIIG tankards of beer.
Argent typified British classic rock in the early 1970s. In their songs you can hear the influences of earlier psychedelic rock and residual traces of 1960s “underground” rock. Their music also hints at the separate lines of development that would soon be followed by classic progressive rock and hard rock.
During their active years from 1969 to 1976 Argent released seven studio albums. This song, from the 1972 album All Together Now, is my favourite.
