Background: Originally intended as a single-disc demo of their newly-invented guitar effects device, the Gizmo, Godley & Creme’s Consequences turned into a three record set featuring extended spoken word parts that included UK comedian Peter Cook.
The album, which was quite expensive in its day, reached #52 on the UK charts but did not chart in the U.S.
The Japanese release of the three record box set was quite limited, as likely was the demand for an album with most of the content being English spoken-word comedy. A single disc version was also released there that consisted only of music excerpts of the album.
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. The first disc is almost entirely instrumental, using the “gizmo” to create all sorts of different textures as a hurricane dubbed “Honolulu Lulu” trashes Hawaii and heads for the United States. … Consequences moves into its story line on the second disc, dividing its time between songs from Godley & Creme and spoken word comedy sketches written and performed by legendary British comedian Peter Cook that push the plot forward.
