House of Nimrod - (1967-68) 7''

Bass, Vocals – Larry Latimer 
Drums – Billy Lawton
Guitar – Johnny Breslin, Tony Pilcher 
Liner Notes – Andrew Schmidt 
Recorded By – Bruce Barton, Jimmy Sloggett
Rhythm Guitar, Vocals – Bryce Petersen*

Limited edition reissue of Auckland, NZ band's 2 singles from Oct. 1967 and Feb. 1968 on one EP

In late 1967, House of Nimrod gobbled up New Zealand’s Christmas pop charts with the mischievous oddity ‘Slightly-Delic’, a song experimenting with the sound of the summer – harmony-laden psychedelic pop.
A chance meeting between Bryce Petersen, a North Shore based children’s folk singer/songwriter, and Australian guitarist Johnny Breslin, produced enough creative sparks for a band and two singles. Breslin had been trying to get a group together and knew a 20 year-old drummer from South Auckland, Billy Lawton, late of The Plague (with Corben Simpson). Lawton knew a blues playing guitarist and philosophy student Tony Pilcher  and young Māori bass guitarist Larry Latimer .

  1. Thanks for that. Songs I heard on the radio 50+ years ago in Auckland, NZ.


Everyone who knows the blog "Old Melodies" or earlier "Wings of Dream" for many years,knows that there are large archives of music here since 2007 ... 98% of the links up to 2015 are dead. I will gradually be engaged in their recovery. This takes a very long time, so the answers to requests will be minimal and in no way will be accepted from anonymous users. I spend a very long time on my uploads. Please,find a couple of seconds to sign your comment or message. I hope for understanding...
