The Avant Gardeners

The Avant Gardeners were — as the name suggests — an avant-garde combo, located in Okehampton, Devon, and lining up as Russell Murch (vocals, guitar), Martin Sanders (guitar), and Nigel Rae (bass, keyboards), plus Only Ones drummer Mike Kellie, working around his commitments somewhere else. A demo documented at an area studio discovered its method to Virgin Information, who released a four-song Avant Gardener EP in Sept 1977, Gotta REVERSE. The band after that fell silent for quite some time, before re-emerging in the first ’80s in the Italian Apaloosa label. Two albums, The Avant Gardenerz as well as the Church from the Inner Cosmos, had been released in 1980 and 1984, respectively.
