"I related to my music through how I felt about the music when I was a kid. Rock ‘n’ roll was a salvation, an energy, a coming of age of some sort, a feeling of your own music, a feeling of pure enjoyment. The music has to have the beat, the energy and the intensity. That’s what real rock ‘n’ roll has." - Walter Egan, June 5, 1980



Walter Egan Bio By Martin Reichold & Jason Ankeny

At first glance, Walter Egan would seem to be the archetypal California rock musician. His first band was a surf group, and [in promotional photos] he certainly looks the part. His late '70s/early '80s had C-A-L-I-F-O-R-N-I-A written all over them; they were sunny, melodic and seemed to belong on a car radio with the top down, and the endless coastal highway disappearing from view.

The only thing wrong with that picture is the fact that Walter Egan was raised in New York [at the polar opposite end of the country]. He was born on July 12, 1948 in the Jamaica suburb of New York City, and (like most kids of that age) his first memories of music centered around Elvis Presley on the Ed Sullivan Show. It was the folk boom that inpsired Egan to take up music, though. In 1963 he bought his first guitar and learned how to play from a Kingston Trio songbook.

Egan's musical direction changed dramatically in the wake of the Beatles, and (more especially) the Beach Boys. He wanted to play in a rock group, and formed a band called the 'Malibooz." They were a New York surf band comprising Egan on guitar and vocals, his friend John Zambetti on lead guitar, drummer Tom Scarpe and pick-up bass players. At this time, Walter was so much in the thrall of the Beach Boys that he tried on numerous occasions to call Brian Wilson.

The end of high school meant the end of the Malibooz, although they experienced a brief revival when they recorded a reunion album for the Los Angeles-based Rhino label ('Malibooz Rules').

After the break up, Zambetti and Egan formed another group in Boston while they were attending college. They called themselves 'Sageworth and Drums' (later simply 'Sageworth'). The group was completed by Ralph Dammann on bass, Matt Sheppard on drums and vocalist Annie McLoone. By this point, the vogue for surf music had passed, and Sageworth turned their attention to th latest sounds emanating from California: psychedelia as performed by Jefferson Airplane.

Before long, John Zambetti concentrated on his medical studies, and was repleaced by John Borge and a second singer, Jack Burkhardt, which made the replication of the Airplane sound even easier. The group lasted until 1973, when Egan finally decided to move to the west coast, (just as he was about to make the move) an old bass player from the Malibooz, Bob Donaldson, arrived in town with his new group, Dangerfish.
The group comprised Donaldson, his brother Tom and Cosmo Goldberg. They began playing with Egan and McLoone. "We figured that none of us knew exactly what was going on at that point," said Egan. "We wanted to survive and so, having the contacts from playing the Boston area and knowing the clubs, we just put together a group to play - and that filled the time between the end of '73 and April '74."

Sageworth actually had a few cracks at the big time, and rubbed shoulders with the soon-to-be-rich and famous. However, Egan never trusted any of the managerial candidates who presented themselves, and they remained very much a local act. They played the Bitter End in New York with Jackson Browne, and trivia buffs may care to note that the first time Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris sang together was in Egan's kitchen. After they started working together, Parsons and Harris performed Hearts on Fire, a song written by Egan and his bassplayer Tom Guidera (who later played in Emmylou Harris's band).

Despite this, Egan still had his heart set on California [more so after he got robbed twice in Boston]. He eventually moved to Claremont, thirty miles outside greater Los Angeles, where he lived with Chris Darrow, then Linda Ronstadt's tour manager. Darrow had just released his first solo album and was looking for musicians to work with him on a promotional tour to be conducted with another United Artists act, the British group 'Man.' The tour even touched down briefly in London.

After their return, Darrow and Egan worked in another band, the Ghostriders, who changed their name to 'Wheels.' They played the California club scene, but, at the end of 1974, Darrow lost his house, and Egan went back to New York to spend Christmas with his family. Back in California, he got a call from Jackson Browne who wanted Egan to help out with backing vocals on the 'Late for the Sky' album. After the sessions were completed, Egan went out on tour with Browne in support of the album, but, despite that, 1975 was a lean year for him. He was writing a lot of songs - in fact, many of the songs that appeared on his first three albums.

Walter Egan's big chance came in the person of Andrew Lauder, later head of Demon/Edsel and Silvertone Records, then an A&R manager at the British division of United Artists. He caught Egan and Wheels at the Troubadour, and, on February 1, 1976, he offered Egan a solo contract. Egan accepted.

Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks were to produce Egan's first album, and they were completing 'Rumours' with Fleetwood Mac. They recorded the basic tracks over the course of two weeks in June 1976, [but with Buckingham and Nicks' commitments to Fleetwood Mac] they didn't finish the final mix until January 1977.

The record was only released in England, but the strength of the material and the presige accorded by the involvement of Buckingham and Nicks, got Egan a contract with Columbia Records in the States. From that point, the pace quickened. The first Columbia single, Only The Lucky, crawled up the Hot 100 as far as 82 in the summger of 1977. The supporting tour was very successful, though, because of the tight band, sexually outspoken songs and the participation of Buckingham and Nicks. So, it was no surprise when Magnet and Steel, the first single puleed from Egan's second album, 'Not Shy,' reached into the Top 10. The second single from the album, Hot Summer Nights, peacked out half way up the Hot 100.

The third album, 'Hi-Fi', was much more a band effort. After the success of Magnet and Steel, Egan had formed his Professional Band, including his old partner Annie McLoone, together with John Selk on bass, Monte X. Moncrieff on guitar, Skip Edwards on keyboards and drummer Mike Huey. This time, Egan produced himself, and he and his new band gave the sound a harder, rockier edge than 'Not Shy.' In the process, Egan lost his audience. Colubmia released three singles; none of them charted. A similar fate befell his final Columbia album, appropriately titled 'The Last Stroll.' The songs didn't have the strength of Egan's previous albums, and Earle Mankey's production was too guitar-heavy. By the time the album was recorded, Annie McLoone had left Egan's band to pursue a solo career, and, as a consequence, his vocals sounded thin.

Columbia dropped Egan after 'Hi-Fi' failed, and he concentrated first on the reunion project with Malibooz, and then acquired a new contract with the MCA spinoff label, Backstreet. For them, Egan recorded the 'Wild Exhibitions' album, released in 1983. The first single pulled from the set, Full Moon Fire, charted respectably at number 46, but Egan couldn't sustain the momentum.

Egan maintained a low musical profile during the remainder of the decade, increasingly turning his energies toward graphic art.

Finally, in 1992, Egan resurfaced on the Malibooz's Malibooz Yule: A Malibu Kind of Christmas, and in 1999 released the solo Walternative. The Lost Album, released in 2000, was originally recorded in 1985 and featured guest appearances from Jackson Browne, Christine McVie, and Randy California. It was followed in 2002 by Apocalypso Now, another winning collection of sophisticated pop/rock.
In 2005, the Acadia label reissued Egan's first four records on two double-disc sets. In 2011, from his home in Franklin, he produced an album entitled Raw Elegant that was released on Spectra Records
In 2014, Egan returned with an ambitious new album, Myth America, and he continued to make occasional live appearances while also exhibiting his visual art.

Cheek - Powerpop Purveyors EP (1980)


A1 - Do You Have A Soul   
A2 - Take Me For What I'm Worth 
B1 - So Much In Love   
B2 - Still In love

Cool 60's styled Powerpop EP from this Sydney based (Covers) band (1976-78) post-humously released through Greg Shaw's Bomp/Voxx Records




Original line-up:
Lee (Peter) Emmett (Voc) ex Jasper 
Robin Jackson (Guitar) ex Hush, Ricochet
Randy Hall (lead guitar)
Felix Maslin RIP (Bass Voc) ex Jasper
Bud Mangion (Drums) ex Jasper

Lee Emmett, Felix Maslin and Bud Mangion first joined forces in 1974 as Jasper, who issued one 45 [Lola], in early 1976 before calling it a day. (The other member being Steve Hall - Guitar)
The 3 then became Punkz with the addition of Robin Jackson (original lead guitarist with Hush) and Randy Hall, who was quickly replaced by Ray Goodwin (ex-Dragon, John Paul Young and the All Stars).
Punkz came to the attention of Ol'55 manager, pop guru Glenn A. Baker, who helped mould their 1960s revivalist image. With Mushroom Records issuing the singles `Anyway You Want It' and `Take Me for What I'm Worth' Unfortunately though, the band's name was to count against them.
[Being named after the "Nuggets" US 60's punk movement, instead they found themselves being  compared to the punk bands in the UK with whom they had nothing in common. The disconnect between the band's name and their image effectively doomed their records to the deletion racks.]
Goodwin left soon after and the band responded by changing its name to Cheek.
A cover of the Mighty Avengers’ "So Much In Love" was Cheek’s debut single for Mushroom in  December 77. Around this time they also began recording an album, with the addition of Troy Richards on keyboards and guitar.
Unfortunately the album was never finished, and their final single, the Rubinoos' "Leave My Heart Alone", was again unsuccessful, the band split in August 1978.

Jackson and Mangion joined the 'Chris Turner Band' and Maslin joined Adelaide's 'Fat Lip'.

Maslin died as a result of an asthma attack in 1988.

L-R Gary L, Graeme P, Gary E, John H
The Little Roosters were formed late '78 by Gary Lammin, shortly after the break-up of his first group, Cock Sparrer. They rehearsed around Romford and Hornchurch for a few months before making their live debut at the legendary Bridge House Pub, Canning Town in Feb'79. Early devotees on the original Mod '79 scene championed them due to their 60’s style garage/guitar based R&B + Gary’s cheeky cockney charm was very reminiscent of the Small Faces' Steve Marriott.
After reports that "Going Round "was to be their debut 45, the bands first single ‘She Cat Sister Floozie’ came out in Nov 79 [Record of the week by Radio 1’s Mike Read] Sales were poor; by the end of the year John Hunt had been replaced By Steve Burgess & by early '80 Graeme Potter had left to join The Spectres leaving the drum stool for Steve Bruce to fill. In March the band released their second 45, a cover of the Otis Redding classic ‘That’s How Strong My Love Is’ [Again record of the week by Mike Read] It was sometime after this 45 that Gary Eve introduced Alison Moyet to Garrie Lammin (apparently so enamored with her voice that he planned at some point not to just have her as a guest vocalist but to have her take over the lead vocal). Basildon Girl, Alison toured all over Britain and Europe with the Roosters, it was actually while she was on stage with the Roosters (At The Bridgehouse) that Vince Clarke saw her and approached her to join a project he was putting together called Yazoo.
Their 3rd 45 [I Need A Witness] & debut album were Produced by Clash front man Joe Strummer [he also played piano for the sessions] This saw them get a TV appearance on‘Get It Together’ an early evening pop show at the time. Their 4th 45 [People Break Down] & the LP were France only releases possibly signing the death knoll for this line up as Bruce & Burgess left to reform Cock Sparrer leaving the others to carry on until sometime in '83.
Another change in style came in '85, with the album Shake It Down, released under the name Garrie And The Roosters, featuring performances from members of The Inmates and Big Heat along with drumming and production credits going to Jon 'Eddie' Edwards from The Vibrators. In '86 Gary decided to quit the music career & focus on his acting career. earning big screen action parts in The Informant, The Calcium Kid and Riff Raff along with numerous roles on TV including parts in Eastenders, and Auf Wiedersen Pet.
 NME - 25-08-79
Since the turn of the millennium, Lammin has become more focussed on music again, with The Zen Buddah Boot Boys and The Bermondsey Joyriders being his latest projects, seeing him work with Producer Dave Goodman and Martin Stacy of Chelsea.

Morrisons’ greatest contribution was as a Producer and his [8 Track] Studio, Stiwdio Les, on Bethesda High Street, was an important landmark in the Welsh Language Scene throughout the ’90s. He recorded an array of bands there as well as producing many others at the Sain Studios at Llandwrog and Recordiau Fflach in Cardigan.
Morrison went on to spend many years working for the Super Furry Animals as a guitar and sound technician and toured extensively with them throughout Europe, America, Australia and Japan.
On the day of his death (29-04-2011) Gruff Rhys wrote on his blog:
“He was a tireless friend and mentor to countless musicians and producers not only in Bethesda and Wales, but with his exemplary social skills and unflinching spirit of adventure, he befriended and touched people’s hearts the world over.”
