CEREBRUM:
Hard psychedelic blues with harmonica, weird spanish vocals, fuzzed geetarsolos adn just about all trippy weirdness this genre has to offer. Not the most important songs in the world but its still great garagefun, and hey, thats not bad at all in my book. Copies of Cerebrums two singles go for about 30-40 pounds each on the rare occasions when they are up for sale.

From The spanish progressive rock encyclopedia:They recorded two singles by late 60s-early 70s and rapidly they splitted, giving birth to a new band named Delirium Tremens. Other members of the group kept on as Cerebrum without any new recordings. The journalist Jordi Serra i Fabra wrote: "Cerebrum are the summit of spanish progressive music. Their music is revolutionary and experimental. They components are young and unquiet, hopefull and plenty of that force that pushes to succeess, to security... Cerebrum is with no doubt a musical experiment, a synthesis of strengthin the grooves of a single." It seems that the second version of Cerebrum hosted the first musical steps of the guitarrist Salvador Domínguez.

DOCTOR DOWNTRIP:
Formed in Brussels back in 1969, Doctor Downtrip were to debut with a single for the Vogue label. In june 1970 they played the “Puzzle P-festival”(a famous Brussels club in the Rue De Bouchers) with many Belgian hardrock bands as well as headliner Wallace Collection. But the first highlight of their relatively brief career was their appearance at the Bilzen Rock & Jazz festival in august 1970 along such acts as Badfinger and Screaming Lord Sutch.

Both festivals also had another Brussels band, Burning Plague on the bill. When by the end of 1970 Plague’s Michael Heslop (who was original from the USA) decided to put his band on hold, the announcement of his entry to Doctor Downtrip quickly followed. After a while this new line-up (John Hastry on bass, Michael Heslop on guitar, Paul Van De Velden on drums, Michel Rorive on vocals and Sylvain Paul on organ) was really rocking as proven on the “summer festival Den Haan” and the fondly-remembered Jemelle festival on august 8th,1971 where they supported Golden Earring and Genesis.

It took more than a year before the new five-piece had an impressive armoury of self-penned compositions at their disposal, and the first proof of it, came in 1972 when they released the single “take my place” backed with “depressed” on CBS records. Both songs showed the real potential of this hardrock band as their fine organ/guitar work was finally captured on vinyl. After healthy sales a second two-tracker was scheduled for release, but without haste, as it was already 1973 when “jumpin’ in the air / winter’s coming” saw the light of day. An appearance as support act for Mark Bolan’s T-REX (on march 24th ,1973) at the big Vorst/Forest National hall also made impression.

By the end of 1975 Doctor Downtrip had already undergone a few changes with Heslop & Paul leaving to be replaced by only a guitarplayer: Jos’ Cuisset who came from Lagger Blues Machine. But it wasn’t only the line-up who’s been changed, also the name was shortened to Downtrip. After that, the band managed to record their second lp and for the first time produced it themselves. “If You Don’t Rock Now” was released in 1976 on CBS/Epic. Excellent hard-rocking stuff throughout; highlights were “sweet lies” and the awesome “getting louder”.

It took more than two years before another Downtrip album hit the shops, but “Downtown” was a fine third set. Especially the first side had storming numbers such as “scarecrow”, “shout it out”, “dedicated to you” and the longer title song. Despite this album things started falling apart and by the end of the decade, the Downtrip members concluded that they were fighting a losing battle and had called it a day without making much of a fuss about.
