Western Culture is a studio album by English avant-rock group Henry Cow, recorded at Sunrise Studios in Kirchberg, Switzerland in January and JulyAugust 1978. It was their last album and was released on Henry Cow's own private label, Broadcast, in 1979. Only the UK Broadcast pressing used the custom label artwork design. Henry Cow was founded at Cambridge University, England by guitarist Fred Frith and keyboardistreed player Tim Hodgkinson. Percussionist Chris Cutler joined in 1971, by which time the band had settled into a regular unit. A diverse mix of influences Zappa, modern classical composition, free jazz, etc. along with the natural creativity and intelligence of the group members most had finished their college degrees before Leg End was released in 1973, spawned a sound unlike any contemporary prog band. The group's fourth and final studio LP, Western Culture remained for a long time Henry Cow's hidden treasure. Two factors were instrumental to its occultation and one more than the other: first, it was not released by Virgin like the other ones second, it did not have the sock artwork common to its brothers. Obscurity aside, Western Culture remains one of the group's strongest efforts in the lines of composition, especially since the unit was literally torn apart at the time. Album 1978 10 Songs.
