The Musicians' Olympus

This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

PINK FAIRIES


Steve Peregrine Took (from T. Rex fame) and Mick Farren (from The Deviants) formed a new lineup of Pink Fairies in November 1969 (with Twink and Silver Darling). But when Twink left, they decided changing the name getting Larry Wallis and Tim Taylor from The Entire Sioux Nation:

Very soon, Farren left after having a fallout with Took, and the rest changed the name into Shagrat.


SHAGRAT


Shagrat was born as an spin off of Pink Fairies (Took, Wallis and Taylor) with Phil Lenoir on drums:

They recorded 3 demos at Strawberry Studios, Stockport in April 1970, and played one gig at the Phun City Festival (by the way, run by Mick Farren!) in July 1970. Taylor did not show for the gig, and Lenoir left the band afterwards.

The new drummer chosen for Shagrat was Dave Bidwell:

But Bidwell also was a member of Chicken Shack, and by then, late 1970, Wallis left for Lancaster´s Bombers.

This lineup appears in the collective double live album Glastonbury Faire:

PINK FAIRIES (again)


In November 1972, Larry Wallis rejoined Pink Fairies, to enforce the guitar section with the great, late Mick Wayne:

PINK FAIRIES #?
Nov 72-1973
êUFO
Mick Wayne
guitar, vocals
Larry Wallis
guitar
Sandy Sanderson
bass, vocals
Russell Hunter

But Mick Wayne soon left, so Wallis started singing lead vocals.

Now a trio, this was the new lineup for Pink Fairies in 1973:

PINK FAIRIES #?
1973-Mar 74
Larry Wallis
guitar, vocals
Sandy Sanderson
bass, vocals
Russell Hunter
drums

They released an album, Kings of oblivion. The band split in March 1974 but they reunited for a special gig in July 1975, as we´re going to read.

Inactive since March 1974, Pink Fairies reunited for a special gig in July 1975:

PINK FAIRIES #?
Jul 75
Larry Wallis
guitar, vocals
Sandy Sanderson
bass, vocals
Russell Hunter
drums
+
Paul Rudolph
bass, vocals
John ´Twink´ Adler
drums

The same trio with a couple of old members and some friend (Paul Rudolph, from Hawkwind).

Their only concert was finally released on a live album several years later, in 1982, under the name of At the Roundhouse. But that's not all; in 1991, it was reissued under the name At the roundhouse / Previously unreleased, comprising the original live album, plus additional songs by Larry Wallis from 1984, and an EP by Twink from 1977.

After their special gig in July 1975, Pink Fairies continued as a trio in September 1975 until July 1976:

PINK FAIRIES #?
Jul 75
Larry Wallis
guitar, vocals
Sandy Sanderson
bass, vocals
Russell Hunter

Motorheadê

But apart from being part of Pink Fairies, Larry had also joined a embrionic band called Motorhead in May 1975.


MOTORHEAD


Larry Wallis while a member of Pink Fairies, also joined a embrionic band called Motorhead in May 1975:

MOTORHEAD #1
May 75-Dec 75
êPink Fairies
Larry Wallis
guitar, vocals
Lemmy
bass, vocals
Lucas Fox
drums

In December 1975, Lucas Fox leaves (to form Warsaw Pakt with Andy Colquhoun).

In December 1975 Motorhead gets a new drummer, the mighty Phil 'Philty Animal' Taylor:

MOTORHEAD #2
Dec 75-Feb 76
Larry Wallis
guitar, vocals
Lemmy
bass, vocals
Phil Taylor
drums

The band recorded one album, On Parole, but it remained unreleased for some years. When Motorhead was a big name, it was finally released.

In February 1976, Motorhead becomes a quartet:

MOTORHEAD #3
Feb 76-
Larry Wallis
guitar, vocals
Eddie Clarke

Lemmy

Pink Fairiesê

But this same month, Larry finally leaves the band to concentrate on Pink Fairies career, leaving Motorhead with their classical lineup.

PINK FAIRIES #?

In July 1976, Pink Fairies turn into a quartet with new member Martin Stone on guitar:

They released a single in September 1976, ´Between the lines / Spoiling for a fight´, for the Stiff label.

AND THEN...


Soon later, Larry found a job working as producer for Stiff label, but this didn't mean he retired. He released a solo single produced by Nick Lowe, ´Police car / On parole´ (November 77, Stiff), being the B-side the same song he recorded with Motorhead. The single was recorded with Paul Gray on bass and Steve Nicol on drums.

LARRY WALLIS BAND


Larry Wallis toured with the Live Stiffs package, also appearing on the live album that was released some time later. Some of the artists featured in the tour, apart from Larry (with an adhoc band called Larry Wallis' Psychedelic Rowdies), were Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe & Dave Edmunds, Ian Dury & The Blockheads (featuring John Turnbull and Mickey Gallagher) and Wreckless Eric.

I haven´t been able to find the lineup for Larry Wallis band, so if someone can help, it would be very welcomed:

REDBYRDS


In 1991, Larry Wallis´ new band was Redbyrds:

REDBYRDS #?
1991-1992
êDr Feelgood
Larry Wallis
guitar, vocals
Phil Mitchell
bass
Chris North

Dr Feelgoodê

They stayed together until 1992, and, as far as I know, they only released one EP, called Truth justice and a wholesome packed lunch. Phil Mitchell was a member of Dr. Feelgood (he came back to the band soon after). Larry was close friends with the band (Dr. Feelgood recorded several tracks written by Larry - the first that comes to my mind now is the nice ´As long as the price is right´). That's the reason why Larry Wallis appears sometimes in tribute concerts for the late Lee Brilleaux.

AND MORE...


Larry Wallis also appeared in a special concert by The Stranglers. It was released a live album from the concert, with The Stranglers plus special friends, such as Larry.

Other acts produced by Larry along the years were The Adverts, Wreckless Eric, etc.

There are sessions by Steve Peregrine Took, recorded around 1972, with appearances by Twink, Mick Wayne, Larry Wallis, Duncan Sanderson and Syd Barrett.

Sadly, Larry Wallis passed away on September 19th, 2019. He was 70. Thanks for your music, Larry!

While this page is quite complete regarding bands and lineups, I need to work on Larry´s discography as soon as I have some free time, but anyway I wanted to publish this page right now as a tribute to him.
