Fire by Crazy World of Arthur Brown was a UK number 1 hit on Wednesday, August 14, 1968 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Although the group is considered a one-hit wonder, there is a lot more to this album. Growing up in England after World War II, Brown spent a lot of time around people whose lives were destroyed by the war, many of whom suffered from PTSD or other difficulties. When he started making music, instead of writing about girls, cars or relationships, he came up with a concept of an inner journey, developing a story about a man who faces his demons, heading into a figurative fire. Along this journey, he encounters the "God of Hellfire," who shows up in "Prelude/Nightmare," the first track on The Crazy World of Arthur Brown concept album. As the man enters the inferno, he finds himself deep in a psychedelic trip, which is described in the second track, "Fanfare/Fire Poem."
