A Band of Angels


Shaped in 1964 at Harrow Public College, England, A Strap Of Angels comprised Michael D’Abo (b. 1 March 1944, Betchworth, Surrey, Britain; vocals/piano), Religious (John) Gaydon (acoustic guitar/vocals), John Baker (acoustic guitar), David Wilkinson (bass) and Wayne Rugge-Price (drums). The music group produced great play of the ‘upper course’ origins, putting on matching sleek fits and straw boater hats in promotion photographs. They authorized to United Performers Information in 1964, and documented ‘Me’ and ‘She’ll Under no circumstances Become You’ for the business before switching to Piccadilly Information. ‘Keep It To Me’ was released in 1965 along with a yr later on the group finished their last, and finest, solitary, ‘Invitation’. A solid defeat and nagging chorus resulted in its learning to be a favourite within the north soul scene from the 70s. D’Abo changed Paul Jones in Manfred Mann in 1966, while John Gaydon became an effective entrepreneur together with ex-A Music group Of Angels supervisor David Enthoven. Collectively they shaped EG Records, house of Roxy Music, Ruler Crimson and Brian Eno.
