Mogul Thrash was a progressive jazz/rock band from the United Kingdom active in the early 1970s. Mogul Thrash evolved from James Litherland's Brotherhood, which in addition to guitarist Litherland (an alumnus of Colosseum who formed the group in 1969) also featured guitarist/reedist Michael Rosen, drummer Bill Harrison and the so-called "Dundee Horns" -- saxophonists Roger Ball and Malcolm Duncan. With the addition of ex-Splinter singer/bassist John Wetton, the group rechristened itself Mogul Thrash, debuting in 1970 with the single "Sleeping in the Kitchen"; their self-titled RCA album appeared the following year, going largely unnoticed at home but finding favor throughout much of Europe. However, faced with legal problems with their management, Mogul Thrash was forced to disband shortly after the record's release; while Wetton went on to join Family and later King Crimson, Duncan and Ball soon reunited in Average White Band. Mogul Thrash released just one album, the eponymous Mogul Thrash (1971). It was produced by Brian Auger, who also played piano on one of the tracks. 01 - Sleeping in the Kitchen 02 - Dreams of Glass and Sand 03 - Going North, Going West 04 - Something Sad 05 - Elegy 06 - What's This I Hear 07 - St. Peter 08 - Dreams of Glass and Sand (alternate take) 09 - Going North, Going West (alternate take) 10 - Something Sad (Alternate take) 11 - What's This I Hear (alternate take) LINK
