The Wicked Lady - The Axeman Cometh (1968/1972)

Uk's power trio band Wicked Lady was formed in 1968 by motorcycle enthusiasts and biker gang members Martin Weaver, "Mad" Dick Smith and Bob "Motorist" Jeffries. They played their heavy rock/proto doom sound touring around the uk in smoke-filled biker clubhouses and pubs. Their wild concerts would often turn to total mayhem and they'd sometimes finish their set with "Mad" Dick hurling his drum kit into the audience. Wicked Lady music was raw and their lyrics dark, covering subjects like war, rebellion, sex, drugs and of course "the wicked lady"! The band never signed with any label and rumors say they were once aproached by some guy from EMI who wanted to sign them but instead got punched in the face by Martin Weaver... That's for sure those guys didn't fuck around! The Axeman Cometh are recordings from tapes covering selections from 1969 to 1972. Awesome and obscure heavy stuff. Check it out!
