Mogul Thrash 1971
|Genres||Progressive rock, jazz fusion, experimental rock|
|Associated acts||King Crimson, Colosseum, Family, Average White Band|
|Past members||James Litherland
British jazz-rock band Mogul Thrash evolved from James Litherland's Brotherhood, which in addition to guitarist Litherland (an alumnus of Colosseum who formed the group in 1969) also featured guitarist/reedist Michael Rosen (previously of Eclection), drummer Bill Harrison and the so-called "Dundee Horns" -- saxophonists Roger Ball and Malcolm Duncan. With the addition of ex-Splinter (a short-lived London-based band which must not be confused with vocal duo group from South Shields) singer/bassist John Wetton, the group rechristened itself Mogul Thrash, debuting in 1970 with the single "Sleeping in the Kitchen"; their self-titled RCA album appeared the following year, going largely unnoticed at home but finding favor throughout much of Europe. However, faced with legal problems with their management, Mogul Thrash was forced to disband shortly after the record's release; while Wetton went on to join Family and later King Crimson, Duncan and Ball soon reunited in Average White Band.
Mogul Thrash released just one album, the eponymous Mogul Thrash (1971). It was produced by Brian Auger, who also played piano on one of the tracks. Brian Auger's Oblivion Express featured Robbie McIntosh on drums, who would later become a founder-member of the Average White Band. When McIntosh died of a drug overdose in 1974, he would be substituted by another Oblivion Express drummer, Steve Ferrone.
