Biography

British jazz-rock band Mogul Thrash evolved from James Litherland’s Brotherhood, which in addition to guitarist Litherland (an alumnus of Colosseum who formed the group in 1969) also featured guitarist/reedist Michael Rosen, drummer Bill Harrison and the so-called “Dundee Horns” — saxophonists Roger Ball and Malcolm Duncan. With the addition of ex-Splinter singer/bassist John Wetton, the group rechristened itself Mogul Thrash, debuting in 1970 with the single “Sleeping in the Kitchen”; their self-titled RCA album appeared the following year, going largely unnoticed at home but finding favor throughout much of Europe. However, faced with legal problems with their management, Mogul Thrash was forced to disband shortly after the record’s release; while Wetton went on to join Family and later King Crimson, Duncan and Ball soon reunited in Average White Band.

    Un intento de jazz-rock abordado en plan estelar por un grupo de excelentes instrumentistas, con James Litherland liderando con solvencia en la guitarra y voz (gran voz), y John Wetton brillando en la sección de ritmo con un trabajo perfecto. En el sonido predomina lo jazzístico antes que lo progresivo (la banda no poseía teclista), con un cierto toque funk, lo que unido a la presencia de una sección de metales da al producto final un inusual aire americano a lo Chicago o Blood, Sweat & Tears. Lo mejor del trabajo, aparte del omnipresente bajo de Wetton, lo constituyen las aportaciones del guitarrista Litherland, tanto en los riffs marcadamente jazzys como en solos de carácter más rock, en algunos momentos de gran calidad.
