Rog And Pip Our Revolution on Limited Edition Colored 180g LP
First Pressing on Colored Vinyl / Limited to 500 Copies
Guitarist Roger Lomas and singer/guitarist Pip Whitcher (aka Rog & Pip) were members of Coventry freakbeat legends The Sorrows. Along with the other remaining members of the band they relocated to Italy in the late 60′s due to their huge popularity over there. Homesick, the pair returned back to the UK before the swinging decade was even over.
The pair continued writing material together, eventually becoming a partnership that lasted well into the 70′s. During this time they recorded a vast amount of material, mainly at the state of the art AIR studios. Fortunately, budding producer (and Grammy award winner) Lomas made sure he kept tapes of everything they recorded, the fruits of which can be heard here for the very first time!
Starting with the Sabbath/Zeppelin-esque proto-metal blast of debut single "From a Window"/"War Lord," they released a string of singles under various guises such as Rog & Pip, Renegade and the Zips. The sounds they created progressed with the times, yet they always maintained a raw and gritty aggressive tone, whether performing bulldozing metal or hard-edged early glam rock.
Our Revolution will give you a glimpse into the world of Rog and Pip and make you wonder why they never really cracked it as a duo. Their songs will do the talking. Limited edition colored 180g vinyl pressing of 500 copies from Rise Above Records. Comes in gatefold sleeve with full sized 12-page booklet.
