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 .
