Brother Bat Bone (1968)
Creepy John Thomas (1969)

Blues-Psych Monster

Both excellent albums by this classy UK '70s psych / Bluesrock band on one disc.They only released their albums in Germany."Brother Bat Bone" is a masterpiece sounding at times like a mixture of Captain Beefheart and the Pink Fairies.Creepy John Thomas had earlier played in the Australian Flies and went on to join the Edgar Broughton Band.

Born in Sydney,Australia,John Thomas has truly been rockin' around for over three decades. He's been writing songs since his first successful venture into the music business,when as a member of Melbourne based band The Flies,he co-wrote their chart hits. During this time,they became famous in Australia for their wild and frantic live performances. As the enfant terribles of the Aussie pop scene, they appeared regularly on TV and also supported The Rolling Stones, Roy Orbison and many others during their Australian career.Moving to London ,John released the "Brother Bat Bone" on the RCA label.
A second album,"Creepy John Thomas",was released on the Teldec label.These two albums have both become cult classics and are sought after by rock historians.Both albums have since been bootlegged by Fingerprint records although John has never received any royalties from sales of these recordings.In the early seventies, after spending over a year in San Francisco,John returned to London and joined the E.B.B. as guitarist.He is featured on the albums Live Hits Harder and Bandages (with Mike Oldfield).During this time John recorded with Dave Stewart and Annie Lennox in their pre-Eurythmics days.After several more years with the E.B.B., John moved to Berlin, Germany, in 1979, where as leader of Johnny & The Drivers,he remained part of the Berlin rock scene for nearly ten years.Two Drivers albums were released,"This Must Be the Night" on Polydor and "Homing in on Zero" on Phonogram.Now based in London,John spends his time writing and recording and planning his next attack on the music establishment. He runs Werewolf Music and spends most of his time time working with other artists as producer and musician and songwriter.John has just produced his first solo effort in decades, "Remember Me this Way",which appears on Werewolf Records.
