After the 2015 release of The Violent World of Bad Breed, Now Magazine stated: “It’s an incredible thing to be surprised by a band in 2015. Genre tags, band names and cover art have taken away a lot of the guesswork. Then there are locals Bad Breed, whose seven-track debut keeps listeners on their toes and is more swanky, cabaret-influenced rock and soul than the death metal their name suggests.” Last year the band released their second LP which I will get to in a few weeks time.

While performing with his group ‘Jimmy James and the Blue Flames’ at the Cafe Wha?, Hendrix played elements of early versions of "Third Stone from the Sun". He continued to develop it with (ex-Animal and now manager) Chas Chandler after moving to England. The two shared an interest in science fiction writing.

Inspired by the then-emerging psychedelic blues rock sound of British acts such as Small Faces, they then reunited with Godovitz, and recruited drummer John Andersen and guitarist Mick Walsh to create Fludd
