Bruce Haack's "Electric Lucifer" is a bit like an electronic opera which describes the battle between good and evil. He used self made electronics, a moog and an early incarnation of the vocoder to create these acid tinged compositions that sound pretty far out even in comparison to other music released around 1969 / 1970. Some the the sounds he creates are truly groundbreaking and more importantly compelling, they also show that Haack was much more than a performer of children's music and was able to explore much deeper and darker themes.

If you are interested in finding out more about Bruce Haack's career I would suggest you hunt down "Haack: The King Of Techno" which is a super documentary about his life and work that was released back in 2004. Also, you can download his album "Listen Compute Rock Home" here.
