    Tapestry of Delights:
    Not to be confused with the American group of the same name, this Gods were formed in Hatfield in 1965 by Mick Taylor and the Glasscock brothers (all ex-Juniors). Taylor was a great John Mayall fan and left to join his Bluesbreakers in the Summer of 1967. He left behind a faltering blues band.
    Line-up 'B' sought to revive their fortunes on the club/college circuit and relocating to London, secured a residency at the Marquee. The problem was that Greg Lake was too talented for the background role the rest of the band had in mind for him and in the Summer of 1968 he split to join King Crimson. The band had to re-group again but line-up 'C', with John Glasscock back in the fold, recorded a couple of interesting progressive rock albums and a few 45s. Of these Hey! Bulldog, the Beatles track, is their best known.
    Their Genesis album is also certainly worth checking out, consisting as it does of an imaginative amalgam of psychedelia and progressive rock. Its better tracks like Towards The Skies and Time And Eternity are full of heavy ploughing Hammond organ and distorted guitar riffs and Ken Hensley's unique and rather dramatic vocals add a further dimension. The recent Repertoire reissues also includes bonus cuts.
    The Best Of The Gods compilation is another good way to access their material which is for the most part pretty typical late sixties pop/rock, epitomised by songs like Radio Show and Yes I Cry. There are shades of Vanilla Fudge on their cover of West Side Story extract Maria but only on a few tracks like Candlelight and Real Love Guaranteed is there an inkling of the heavier sound Hensley and Kerslake would propagate in their next venture, Uriah Heep.
    Curiously it appears that the Glasscock brothers, Konas, Hensley and Kerslake were also responsible for the Head Machine album, recorded under pseudonyms in 1970. This too, is worth hearing.  ~ (Vernon Joynson/Martin Dench)
