United Kingdom (2004 – present)

Crippled Black Phoenix are a rock band from the United Kingdom. Several musicians have contributed to Crippled Black Phoenix’s albums and play with them during their live shows.

They are a collective of musicians from many other bands (including notably Iron Monkey, Gonga, Mogwai, Electric Wizard and others). In 2004, Justin Greaves began recording primitive sounds he had in mind for years. He was encouraged by Dominic Aitchison, and their ideas would lay the backbone for Crippled Black Phoenix.

Although originally having an unorthodox start, since all the band members were part of and busy with other projects at the time of the band’s founding, Crippled Black Phoenix remained committed to staying together and forged their sound. The band writes what they call “endtime ballads,” signifying both the slightly macabre nature of their songs and their unusual blend of styles as the final evolution in music. This blend has led to them being called everything from stoner-prog to freak-folk to doom.

Crippled Black Phoenix have made live shows a focus and have performed in unusual venues, using Victorian-era instruments in tandem with more modern instruments.

    People who whine about bands first albums being the best are mostly pretentious arseholes who want to be cooler than everyone... and people who whine about "commie bullshit" are obviously not in the right place for a start. These negative people should get the fuck off line. CBP rule always.

    The latest album was disappointing. It wasn't very interesting musically. I guess Greaves is too busy whining his commie bullshit on FB.

    some of CBP's tracks do sound very floydian, but really only a few. time of ye life/born for nothing/paranoid arm of narcoleptic empire is one that comes to mind. outside of that and a few other tracks, i think they're rather dissimilar. and i actually liked white light generator- not their best work, but it's still damn good. the whole album sounds like an homage to the old west, which i can totally dig.

    You can't make the compare to Pink Foyd with this band. Such a real shame what is happened to this band now. They used to be favourite of mine. If you just hear of them buy there first albums with the original singer as these are great music and songs. The top songs here are always with him. Shame they are so much bad now.

    I like Crippled Black Phoenix but comparing them to Pink Floyd is like comparing them to 2 Unlimited. Rather bad joke. Absolutely different style.
