Consequences is the debut album by English pop artists Godley & Creme. It was released in 1977 as a boxed triple-LP. Created as a concept album, it incorporates a play, with all characters voiced by comedian Peter Cook, and singing by Sarah Vaughan, who was brought into the project by Phonogram after trying to secure Ella Fitzgerald.
Lol Creme, Kevin Godley – Consequences. Genre: Electronic, Rock, Non-Music. Kevin Godley & Lou creme divided this device called "The gizmo" which I believe was a box with 5 wheels inside that would align with guitar strings and clamp to the guitars neck. The wheels had wire brushes affixed and were rotated at speed - when pressed to the guitar strings it would create these other worldly - almost string section type noise, & with added studio effects would make some of the weirdest noises recorded.
This album, the solo debut of former 10cc members Kevin Godley and Lol Creme, is generally considered to be one of the most notorious examples of '70s music-business excess. Consequences began its life as a single designed to show off the "gizmo," a musical device created by Godley & Creme that allowed an electric guitar to create symphonic-sounding textures when attached to its neck. Simply put, Consequences is a disaster: its humor is labored, its musical content is dull, and the mind-numbing length of the album proved that neither Godley nor Creme knew when to quit. The duo later proved they were capable of better and more focused satirical pop on albums like Freeze Frame, but they are lucky this creative train wreck didn't end their career before it could start.
