Consequences is the debut album by English pop artists Godley & Creme. It was released in 1977 as a boxed triple-LP. Created as a concept album, it incorporates a play, with all characters voiced by comedian Peter Cook, and singing by Sarah Vaughan, who was brought into the project by Phonogram after trying to secure Ella Fitzgerald.
Keyboardist Lol Crème, and drummer Kevin Godley, both formerly members of smart-pop rockers 10cc. Striking out as a duo from 1977, they released the infamous triple album Consequences - a pseudo-musical with dialogue. They were also involved in video production and were responsible for Herbie Hancock's memorable "Rockit" video.
This album, the solo debut of former 10cc members Kevin Godley and Lol Creme, is generally considered to be one of the most notorious examples of '70s music-business excess. Consequences began its life as a single designed to show off the "gizmo," a musical device created by Godley & Creme that allowed an electric guitar to create symphonic-sounding textures when attached to its neck. Somewhere along the line, this single blew up into a triple-disc concept album about nature taking its revenge on mankind through hurricanes, floods, and the like.
LOL CREME & KEVIN GODLEY (Artist) Format: Vinyl. This album gets a lot of flack for its experimental nature and the fact that they sort of threw a comedy teleplay in the middle and also it's length (three records). Luckily, that also means that you can probably find a used copy of the original 1977 UK LP in pretty decent condition (because a lot of people don't listen to it over and over). This is a Brilliant Work from Lol Creme and Kevin Godley called "Consequences"; combining an INCREDIBLE ARRAY of Sounds, due mainly to the creativity of the pair listed, and a device they created called the "Gizmo"; voice, intruments, all manner of sounds can be run through and created with their Gizmo device.

Kevin Godley and Lol Creme were songwriting partners in the very successful art-pop band10cc in the mid 1970s. The other songwriting partnership in that band, Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart, were the more conventional poppers, while Godley and Creme generally steered the band into quirkier territory. Eventually they figured out how to make a wide range of sounds with this device, and decided in 1976 to make a demonstration single to help promote their invention. That was the original plan, anyway. What eventually happened was that Godley and Creme left 10cc to devote their full energies to this, a vast three-record concept album based almost entirely on sounds produced by the Gizmo. Imagine what guts those guys had. The result is one of the most confounding, eccentric album packages ever conceived.
At the time, Kevin Godley and Lol Creme were experimenting with a guitar gadget called the Gizmo, which created orchestral-like effects. I actually met Lol Creme recently, and he was incredibly happy when I told him that in my opinion Consequences is one of the greatest albums of all time. It’s something I don’t think he hears too often. JON ANDERSON – Olias Of Sunhillow (Atlantic, 1976).
