THIS IS THE ORIGINAL KILLING
FLOOR - THE SEMINAL BRITISH BLUES-ROCK BAND WHO PRODUCED TWO LEGENDARY
ALBUMS IN THE LATE SIXTIES / EARLY SEVENTIES, FEATURING:
BILL THORNDYCRAFT, MICK CLARKE, LOU MARTIN, STUART McDONALD, BAZZ SMITH
Killing Floor were picked up on by ex-Radio Caroline DJ John Edward.
Martin recalls, "Edward thought we sounded like Hendrix and as the British Blues boom being in full flow saw us as a chance to get involved in the scene."
Edward booked the band for Dunstable's California Ballroom and so gave Killing Floor support slots to the likes of Ten Years After , Jethro Tull, Chicken Shack, The Herd, The Casuals and Junior Walker And The All Stars amongst others.
