Creative Rock - Lady Pig, the title track of their second and final album, released in 1974. Hailing from Bielefeld in Germany, Creative Rock were formed in the late sixties as "The Bourbon Street Paraders". As was the case with Emergency, they were also inspired by brass rock outfits such as Blood, Sweat &Tears, Colosseum, etc. The original members of the band were Heiko Steinsiek on drums, Michael Maas on bass and guitar, Hubertus Kreutner on trumpet and flugelhorn, Klaus Weber and Gunter Schmeide on guitars, Rainer Erbel on vocals and Benny Stremmel on saxes. A powerful line-up by any standards, they were signed to Metronome (Brain) Records and released their debut album, "Gorilla", in 1972. Comparisons to Heaven and a heavier version of Blodwyn Pig wouldn't be out of place here. This second and final album saw guitarist Apostolos Papanikolaou (probably the most un-Afrikaans name you'll ever come across!) replace both Schmeide and Weber, and this album was actually heavier than the debut, but with a bit more experimentation. In 1975, Creative Rock were touring with an adventurous rock ballet production called "Die Creative Rock - Dekadenz Show.
