Biography

An English heavy rock trio from the early 1970s. Released their only album ‘The Hundredweight’ on Kuckuck Records in 1973. CWT was one of the heaviest acts on Kuckuck (which was also the home for bands like Out of Focus, Armageddon (D) or Muphy Blend, but the label become famous for the records of Ihre Kinder).

Graham Jones (guitar, organ)
Peter Kirk (bass)
Collin White (drums)
Cy Paine (brass arrangements)

In 1973 the band would join David Kubinec to form a new band The Rats. As the album was in preparation for production, two of the band members fell out with Millar and were sacked. Another couple of players (Roddy MacKenzie aka ‘Jeep Solid’ & Jeff Allen) were hastily drafted in for a band photo, that which appears inside the LP gatefold, but never played on the record nor anywhere else as THE RATS. Indeed THE RATS even with the band members who did play on the record, never played live.
