Notes

Lobby Loyde: “We recorded Obsecration towards the end of 1975, but we only recorded on full moons over a period of three months”. “See, originally we were gonna call that album Full Moon Fever, but then we thought, ‘oh, it sounds a bit like mountain music, y’know, Kentucky moonshine music’. So then I came up with the title Obsecration, sort of intense.”

After the unpleasant break-up of the Coloured Balls at the end of 1974, Loyde cooled his heels, and by mid-year, with a couple of allies in drummer Jimmy Thompson and sax player Paul Dixon, was ready to hit the studio again. A solo single Do You Believe In Magic / Love Lost On Dream-Tides was released on the Bootleg label. Loyde, suitably revitalised and re-energised, was ready to proceed. For his new band, Southern Electric, the guitarist added two of his old Coloured Balls companions, rhythm guitarist Andrew Fordham and bass player Janis Miglans before rounding out the line-up with keyboardist John Dey and singer Mándu.
