Colonel Bagshot were formed in the late 60's and were originally a six piece which included Mike Byrne of the Beatles experience fame. The band created record company interest and in 1971 'oh what a lovely war' was released. 'Smile' was the first single released from the album though 'Six Day War' was the most popular and in the early noughties it was remixed by Dj Shadow and was used for the soundtrack of 'Phone Booth' starring Colin Farrell (no relation to Brian). Bagshots toured with Slade and went through transitions with new band members before Brian Farrell became a solo artist signed to Warner Brothers and Kenny Parry, Dave Dover, Terry McCusker went on to form 'Nickelodeon' a very popular tight rock/pop trio. Colonel Bagshot reformed in 2006 for the launch of a book about the 70's music scene at the Cavern in Liverpool. For more information check out their myspace and website.
