NECROMANDUS

ON 30th MARCH, 1973, THE LEGENDARY PROG ROCK BAND NECROMANDUS, THEN MANAGED BY BLACK SABBATH GUITARIST TONY IOMMI, PLAYED A GIG AT 'THE CASINO', BLACKPOOL, LANCASHIRE. THE BAND WERE RECORDED ON A PORTABLE CASSETTE RECORDER BY TONY'S PARTNER, NORMAN HOOD.

NECROMANDUS DISBANDED BEFORE THE RELEASE OF THEIR FIRST ALBUM, WHICH WAS THEN SHELVED. THE ALBUM, PRODUCED BY TONY IOMMI, HAS SINCE SEEN THE LIGHT OF DAY COURTESY OF AUDIO ARCHIVES, AND HAS PROVED A BIG SELLER..AMPLY ILLUSTRATING THE IMMENSE AND UNFULFILLED POTENTIAL OF THE BAND.

NOW, THIRTY-ODD YEARS ON AND WITH TWO OF THE BAND MEMBERS SADLY NO LONGER WITH US, AUDIO ARCHIVES HAVE RELEASED THE LIVE RECORDING - THE TAPE HAVING BEEN FOUND IN SUPERB CONDITION IN THE DEPTHS OF NORMAN'S LOFT. SINGER BILL BRANCH ACTUALLY CALLS OUT TO NORMAN BETWEEN TWO OF THE NUMBERS! FAME AT LAST, AFTER ALL THESE YEARS!!!!

AT AROUND THE SAME TIME, A MIDLANDS GROUP CALLING THEMSELVES THREE-HEADED DOG SENT IN AN AUDITION TAPE TO THE AGENCY RUN BY NORMAN, TONY IOMMI AND RIC LEE, DRUMMER WITH TEN YEARS AFTER. THE BAND THEN DISAPPEARED WITH OUT TRACE. NOW, THANKS TO AUDIO ARCHIVES, YOU CAN HEAR WHAT THE WORLD MISSED IN 1973. HOW GOOD COULD THESE GUYS HAVE BEEN! WE HAVE MADE EVERY EFFORT TO TRACE MEMBERS OF THREE-HEADED DOG, BUT THE BAND REMAINS A MYSTERY. IF YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THEM, PLEASE CONTACT NORMAN HOOD AT THE E-MAIL LINK BELOW. TWO OTHER OF THE AGENCY BANDS ARE FEATURED HERE , PROG-ROCK MASTERS KHAYYAM AND THE HEAVIER STALLION, TOGETHER WITH A TRACK FROM AN UNLABELLED ACETATE SEEING THE LIGHT OF DAY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ALMOST THIRTY-FIVE YEARS

WE HAVE A SUPPLY OF THE CD'S (NATURALLY) AND THEY ARE AVAILABLE FOR THE RIDICULOUSLY CHEAP SUM OF TEN ENGLISH POUNDS BY CLICKING THE LINK BELOW.
