CHURCH OF THE COSMIC SKULL is a twofold entity: a new religious movement who seek to free mankind from their material possessions and unify all living beings into a singular cosmic whole; and a 7-piece supergroup based in Nottingham UK playing Prog/Psych/'70s Rock/Pop. For fans of BLACK MOUNTAIN, GHOST, KING GIZZARD, UNCLE ACID. The combination of guitar, hammond organ, electric cello, bass and drums is a tip of the hat to the MAHAVISHUU ORCHESTRA sound, but with six-part QUEEN-esque vocal harmonies and THIN LIZZY pop-rock structures.
Brought together by songwriter Bill Fisher, the group features some of the best musicians in the universe:
Michael Wetherburn - Hammond Organ & BV (HELLSET ORCHESTRA, ULYSSES STROM)
Loz Stone - Drums (IRON SWAN, RESCUED BY WOLVES)
Sam Lloyd - Bass & BV (YOU SLUT!, PILGRIM FATHERS)
Jo Joyce - Backing Vocals (Solo Artist)
Amy Nicholson - Electric Cello & BV (HELLSET ORCHESTRA, POLYMATH)
Caroline Cawley - Backing Vocals (DYSTOPIAN FUTURE MOVIES, CLUB AC30)
Bill Fisher - Guitar & LV (MAMMOTHWING, DISTILLERY BLUES BAND)
Today's tune "Black Slug" is taken from the bands debut album "Is Satan Real?". Directed, filmed and edited by Tom Walsh
