45 Revolutions: The Scenery

Short-lived UK mod band The Scenery featured Ian Hunter (Mott The Hoople), Miller Anderson (The Voice*, Paper Blitz Tissue), Dave Dufort (East Of Eden, Angel Witch), Dante Smith, and John Vernon Smith. Their stomping, freakbeat floor-shaker "Thread Of Time" was recorded in 1967 at Regent Sound — with drummer John Banks from The Merseybeats subbing for Vernon Smith at the session — and released on France's Impact label as the b-side to "To Make A Man Cry." (The 45 was also released in Japan via Columbia Records.)

* The Voice, who released the monster "Train To Disaster," are
rumored to have been the house band for The Process Church,
the infamous cult led by Robert and Mary Anne DeGrimston.
