Records are not for sale - For your viewing pleasure only

"The Gods" were an English group founded in 1965. The bandmembers included Mick Taylor (later with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers and The Rolling Stones), Brian Glascock (later with The Motels and with The Bee Gees) and John Glascock (later of Jethro Tull and Chicken Shack). Mick continued to play guitar and teamed up with Ken Hensley (later guitarist with Uriah Heep). They also added Joe Konas and changed their name from "The Strangers" to "The Gods". In 1966, The Gods opened for Cream at the Starlite Ballroom in Wembley. In May 1967, Mick Taylor got a call from John Mayall who was looking for a new guitarist. When Taylor joined the Bluesbreakers, the band sought to revive their fortunes on the club/college circuit. John Glascock (bass) was replaced by Greg Lake (later of King Crimson and Emmerson Lake And Palmer), the problem was that Greg was too talented for the background role the rest of the band had in mind for him and in the Summer of 1968 he split to join King Crimson. The band had to re-group again and John Glascock was asked to return. With John back in the fold they recorded a couple of progressive rock albums and a few 45s. Of their 45s, "Hey! Bulldog", the Beatles track, is their best known. The band played an amalgam of psychedelia and progressivism. The Gods were the successors of the Rolling Stones at the famous Marquee Club in London. After recording two albums,they signed with a new record company, recruited Rebel Rousers singer Cliff Bennett and changed their name to Toe Fat which also lasted two years and two albums.
