By January 1975, the group had completed its first and, as it turns out, only studio album, to which we shall return shortly. Almost immediately thereafter, the drummer, the formidable Dave Mattacks, quit the band. On the eve of a European tour, Dave Pegg interviewed about 30 candidates to replace him, which was apparently one of the worst nights of his life. They eventually settled on Paul Warren, who had been a roadie for the group for four years. He left altogether after the tour, and was replaced by a chap called Bruce Rowland; however, by the end of the year, the band had fallen apart again. In a later post we shall consider a peculiar advertisement that appeared in December 1975.
However, before that, we have the splendid 1975 LP “Rising For The Moon”, and a curious CD released in 2006 called “Many Ears to Please”, which I think is the only recording which exists of the line up which featured Paul Warren.
