Shadoks presents on CD an unknown UK album that had great potential from Eugene Carnan -- a three-piece band from the Rhondda Valley in South Wales. Musically, it is very powerful, guitar-dominated underground rock in the vein of Black Sabbath, Blue Cheer, Dark or Grannie, but the rarity factor is way above all those other rare UK albums, which stayed in low pressings of 99 copies and 15-20, as was the case with Dark. This extraordinarily rare album was originally only published as a private acetate in an edition of four copies. In September 1971, Eugene Carnan entered a UK-wide competition for "Best New Band," run by the famous Melody Maker magazine. They recorded the album in 1972 and took it to London to Eden Studios for a demo pressing and cut four acetates. Guitar and vocals, bass and drums -- all their own compositions. A killer album from beginning to end, now on CD.
