Armageddon - Armageddon (1969)

A Los Angeles band, although Mark Creamer, Jim Parker and John Stark were earlier members of the Texan Kitchen Cinq. They did not release any 45s on this label but the album is now a very minor collectable. They sound influenced by Cream on a couple of tracks and also covered Tales Of Brave Ulysses. The album, which was produced by Tom Thacker, also contains a weird cover of The Magic Song (Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo), from Disney's "Cinderella".
Robert Ledger went on to play in Simon Stokes' Nighthawks, whilst James Parker and John Stark also played on Them's U.S.-only album In Reality. Marc Creamer played for his wife (Laura Creamer)'s band, Eve, on their Take It And Smile album, (LHI 3100) 1970 (also produced by Tom Thacker and featuring Ry Cooder, James Burton, Hal Blaine and Sneaky Pete). Finally, Skip Battyn played in The Evergreen Blueshoes and would later join The Byrds.
