Crack in the Cosmic Egg:
All of you should know that "The Nazgul" are the ominous "black riders" from Tolkien's "Lord Of The Rings". The group The Nazgul, thus tried to emulate this dark mysterious spirit. They proved to be the most free-form of improvising rock bands, in the nether regions of weirdest cosmic Tangerine Dream, and the most experimental of the bands on the Pyramid label.
According to a conversation with Toby Robinson (credited as Tolkien character Gandalf) The Nazgul were the most prolific of Pyramid acts, as they would while away the quiet hours of the graveyard shift at Dierks studio doing all sorts of experimentation, with tapes reeled from one machine to another, devising new ways of feedback and such-like. Apparently a second LP was also completed, but no reissue has appeared as yet.
Toby, now works at Moat Studios in London, and he is a well respected engineer and technician. The recent 12" EP (composed by Toby Robinson & Presence) saw him attempt a rebirth of The Nazgul, making use of recycling techniques for a record that sounds more like an atmospheric Nurse With wound release.
