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).

VIPS


The band VIPs was based in Carlisle. Formed in 1963, they went through many personnel changes, and recorded two singles for RCA and CBS. Mike Kellie joins them in November 1966:

VIPS #?
Nov 66-Dec 66
êLocomotive
Mike Harrison
vocals
Jimmy Henshaw
guitar
Frank Kenyon

Greg Ridley
bass
Mike Kellie
drums

They played with this lineup at the UNICEF variety show at the Olympia Theatre in Paris, who provoked a good success for their then-current single ´I wanna be free / Don't let it go´ (1966, Island), although it had been recorded before Kellie joined the band.

In December 1966, Henshaw left the band.

This was VIPs in December 1966, now as a quartet:

VIPS #?
Dec 66-?
Mike Harrison
vocals
Frank Kenyon
guitar
Greg Ridley
bass
Mike Kellie
drums

And Frank Kenyon also leaves a bit later, leaving the band as a trio.

VIPs carried on as a trio in the beginning of 1967:

VIPS #?
1967
Mike Harrison
vocals
Greg Ridley

Mike Kellie

They search for a guitarist, and they think of Luther Grosvenor, then with Deep Feeling:

Sometime later, they augment the band with a keyboardist who was headed to be very famous...

SPOOKY TOOTH


A legendary band was born, Spooky Tooth, in October 1967:

SPOOKY TOOTH #1
Oct 67-Feb 70

êArt
êThe New York Tymes
êArt
Luther Grosvenor

Greg Ridley

Mike Kellie

Humble Pieê

Their first album was called It´s all about. It was followed by Spooky Two. This one included the song ´Better by you, better than me´ that was covered years later by heavy metal band Judas Priest.

Their third album was a sort of experiment with a French composer called Pierre Henry. The resulting album, Ceremony, didn't get any success, and the first problems started to arise. By February 1970, both Greg Ridley and Gary Wright had left the band. But the first one to leave was Ridley, to join Humble Pie.

Spooky Tooth replaced Greg Ridley with Bob Griffin:

SPOOKY TOOTH #2

Luther Grosvenor
guitar, vocals
Bob Griffin

Mike Harrison

Gary Wright

Mike Kellie

But Griffin didn´t stay long.

This bassist for Spooky Tooth was Andy Leigh:

Luther Grosvenor

But then, both Leigh and Wright left the band.

In February 1970, Spooky Tooth had been reduced to a trio:

SPOOKY TOOTH #2
Feb 70-?
Luther Grosvenor
guitar, vocals
Mike Harrison
keyboards, vocals
Mike Kellie
drums

As a trio, they started recording a new album, with help from some members of the Grease Band: the late ones Henry McCullough (guitar) and Alan Spenner (bass), as well as Chris Stainton (keyboards). The album was The last puff.

Spooky Tooth searched for musicians to complete the band, in order to promote the album The last puff with a tour:

SPOOKY TOOTH #5
1970
Luther Grosvenor
guitar, vocals
Steven Thompson
bass
Mike Harrison
keyboards, vocals
John Hawken
keyboards
Mike Kellie
drums

But that same Autumn 1970, they noticed that something happened, and they finally decided not to continue with the band (although the band was resurrected in 1972 again).


THREE MAN ARMY


Three Man Army was formed by brothers Adrian Gurvitz and Paul Gurvitz (both, ex-Gun), along with Mike Kellie, in 1970:

THREE MAN ARMY #1
1970
Adrian Gurvitz
guitar, vocals
Paul Gurvitz

Mike Kellie

They released a very good album, A third of a lifetime, recorded with help from Brian Parrish and Buddy Miles. But Mike was to leave the band soon, although he rejoined Paul Gurvitz (and Brian Parrish) soon later.

PETER FRAMPTON BAND


After the release of Peter Frampton's first solo album, Winds of change, he assembles a live band (named Frampton´s Camel) in June 1972, with part of the musicians that had played in the album:

SPOOKY TOOTH (again)


After their separation in Autumn 1970, Mike Harrison and Gary Wright put Spooky Tooth to life again in September 1972. But it's in March 1973 when Mike Kellie decides to join them again:

SPOOKY TOOTH #?
Mar 73-Feb 74
Mick Jones
guitar, vocals
Chrissie Stewart
bass
Mike Harrison
keyboards, vocals
Gary Wright

Mike Kellie

They release a new album, Witness. But in February 1974, Mike Harrison leaves again, Chris Stewart also leaving.

This was the new lineup for Spooky Tooth in February 1974:

SPOOKY TOOTH #?
Feb 74-May 74
Mike Patto
vocals
Mick Jones
guitar, vocals
Keith Ellis
bass
Gary Wright

In spite of the important potential of the band (Mike Patto was a superb singer), it didn't work, and Ellis and Kellie left the band in May 1974, without recording any material.


MILLER FRASER BAND

THE ONLY ONES


This was a really unexpected move. I was surprised when I read at that time that Mike was to join a sort of new wave band. This was late 1975, when the band is assembled, although the last member to arrive, bassist Alan Mair, wasn't recruited until August 1976.

Originally called Peter & The Pets, the band was commanded by Pete Perrett, a strange and very talented guy:

THE ONLY ONES #1
Aug 76-1981
Peter Perrett
guitar, vocals
John Perry
guitar
Alan Mair
bass
Mike Kellie
drums

They released a single in their own label Vengeance, ´Lovers of today / Peter & The Pets´, before changing their name to the definitive The Only Ones.

Their debut album, the self-titled The Only Ones, contains their best known song, 'Another girl, another planet'. Although the CD edition doesn't say a word, I once read that the album includes the appearance by Kellie´s old mate Mick Gallagher on keyboards.

The second album was called Even serpents shine, and it contains contributions by Adam Maitland (keyboards, sax), and John 'Rabbit' Bundrick (keyboards). With killer songs, such as ´Programme´.

Special view was a compilation of tracks from the 1st and 2nd album, plus both sides from their first single in 1977.

Their proper third album is Baby's got a gun. Recorded with help from Barrie Evans (guitar) and Pauline Murray (backing vocals).

But things weren't going fine between the members, and they finally disbanded in 1981, although some more albums have been issued since then.

Remains and Alone in the night are compilations of outtakes and non-album tracks. First editions of Remains came with a free EP (4 songs).

I once saw a vinyl called Live. It said ´limited edition´, but I couldn't get it. I don't know if it has been finally released on CD.

The Peel Sessions include live material recorded for the radio from 1977 until 1980.

The big sleep is a live album recorded in November 1979.

It has also been released a video with studio and live footage, called Faster than lightning (Vision Video).

The latest release is Darkness & light - The complete BBC recordings. It's a great double CD, with 28 tracks, taken from different radio recordings dating from 1977 to 1980.

JOHNNY THUNDERS BAND


During January and February 1978, Johnny Thunders led this band called The Living Dead:

JOHNNY THUNDERS BAND #?

SPOOKY TOOTH #?
1997-?
Luther Grosvenor
guitar, vocals
Greg Ridley
bass
Mike Harrison
keyboards, vocals
Mike Kellie
drums

It has been a long story since the first news about the reunion appeared. At first, they were supposed to record a few tracks, in order to complete a new release containing old live tracks (from 1968, at the BBC) and some rarities (a Deep Feeling track - a band by Luther Grosvenor, Poli Palmer and Jim Capaldi). It was also supposed that Dave Moore was to contribute to the lineup. In July 1997, they recorded three tracks. This was to be the content of Sunrise, but a year later, the album finally appeared including only new tracks under the name Cross purpose.
In 2004, we find a different edition of Spooky Tooth, now without Luther Grosvenor and Greg Ridley, but with Gary Wright back in the band:

SPOOKY TOOTH #?
2004-?
Joey Albrecht
guitar, vocals
Michael Becker
bass, vocals
Mike Harrison
keyboards, vocals
Gary Wright

Mike Kellie

They played a short tour in Germany, and years later, a live DVD was released from those concerts, Nomad poets - live in Germany 2004.

    • Technical: Lee Herschberg
    • Comments: Mike Kellie played with Johnny Thunders for some concerts in 1978. That same year, he recorded this album, with relevant people from the emergent punk scene, such as Steve Jones & Paul Cook (from The Sex Pistols), Walter Lure & Billy Rath (from The Heartbreakers), Chrissie Hynde (from The Pretenders), John Earle (sax, from Graham Parker Band), Peter Perrett & Mike Kellie (from The Only Ones), plus Phil Lynott (bass, from Thin Lizzy) and Steve Marriott (guitar, from Humble Pie) and Johnny's fiancee, singer Patti Paladin.
      There was some special edition in vinyl with an extra single attached. CD reissue contains 4 bonus tracks.
    • My opinion: I must say that punk and assorted are not my favourite style, but Johnny Thunders was really talented. I saw some concerts on TV, and I liked that he always included some covers by all-girls soul bands, such as The Shangri-Las, The Ronettes or The Supremes. A shame he died, he lived too dangerously...
