Morgen was a hard rock/psych band that hailed from Long Island, NY. They were fronted by guitarist/vocalist/wild man Steve Morgen but also included drummer Bob Maiman and guitarists Barry Stock and Rennie Genossa. In 1969, record label Probe (ABC) released the group’s sole offering.
The album’s best known track is the classic “Welcome To The Void.” 40+ years later this cut’s over the top acid guitar work and pounding drums still shred the best of speakers. Certainly a unique mixture of acid garage and hard rock, “Welcome To The Void” is essential listening. There are other great cuts to be found on Morgen, like the stealth rocker “Purple” and the freaky fuzz corker ”Of Dreams.” “Eternity In Between,” probably influenced by the Who, is another excellent track that begins with ringing guitars and crashing drums. – Rockasteria
