The band was managed initially by Music For Nations owner Martin Hookerthen then Nuclear Assault manager Paul Loasby. 1990's 'Condemned To Eternity' bolstered their reputation but the band then undertook a severe left turn in their brand of music adopting then in-vogue Funk for their third album, 1991's 'Laughing'. Having gathered fans with their previous two albums, Re-animator's liberal us of horn sections, odes to Laurel and Hardy, an unaccredited acapella stab at Monty Python's 'Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life' and even a dash of reggae did not serve them well. Line-up changes affected the band too, with Ingleson and Abel being superseded by singer Lee Robinson and guitarist Adam Clarke, as Grahame Dixon was enrolled on rhythm guitar. The final 1992 outing 'That Was Then...This Is Now', included a cover version of Thin Lizzy's 'Cold Sweat'. John Wilson resurfaced in Ska band Badness and Mark Mitchell journeyed through punk band The Happy Durals before enrolling into a Hawkwind covers band as 'Denbo Drumwind'.
The CD re-issue of 'Condemned To Eternity' additionally contained the 'Deny Reality' mini-album. MySpace Page: www.myspace.com/reanimatorukthrash Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
