The Flying Hat Band


The Flying Hat Band were an early 1970's Birmingham, England hard rock act that, alongside Judas Priest, ranked as the Midlands' favourites to succeed [1]. Despite not having released an album, the band proved a successful club act and eventually went on to support Deep Purple on one of their European tours. The band folded in May 1974 following Glenn Tipton's departure to become the second guitarist in Judas Priest, who at the time had just signed their first record deal with Gull Records.

The band folded in May 1974 following Glenn Tipton's departure to become the second guitarist in Judas Priest, who at the time had just signed their first record deal with Gull Records. Originally a quartet called Merlin, the band went through numerous line-up changes before what would become its core formed: Glenn Tipton - vocals, guitar Peter "Mars" Cowling - bass guitar Steve Palmer - drums Pete Hughes - vocals Andy Wheeler - bass guitar Frank Walker - bass guitar Trevor Foster - drums Signed to Vertigo, in 1973 the trio recorded a studio album which was never released as the label deemed the music had too much in common with Black Sabbath. Glenn Tipton is said to be in possession of the master tape, but it is unclear whether any material from it will eventually surface. In 1992, small German label SPM International mysteriously released a split CD entitled "Buried Together", featuring progressive rock band Antrobus alongside 4 Flying Hat Band demo tracks, dated back to 1973. Drummer Steve Palmer is the brother of Carl Palmer (Emerson, Lake, and Palmer). Read more on Last.fm.
