The Time Lord
Label: Temple Of Mystery Records
Crazy: A totally occult Brit doom metal band (complete with a "Black Mass") who sound like they got the idea from that live Black Oak Arkansas LP with the backwards Satanic masking! Terry Jones even drawls like Jim "Dandy" Mangrum, like he's got Skoal between his cheek and gums. The title cut starts out gurgling like 13th Floor Elevators, then turns into an eight-minute space-motorcycle ride: Hawkwind evolving into Motörhead. Five songs in 32 minutes, recorded in 1978 but left to rot in a root cellar for several decades. Even the big fat Sabbath riffage has a funky Southern boogie throb to it.
