Night of the Lords

Many months after the European leg of the Abyssinia Tour was over, I was cleaning out my guitar case and found a flash drive that I had forgotten about. Upon inspection I realized it was a complete multi-tracked live performance, date and city unknown. After listening to some of the banter in between songs, I figured out that it was from Manchester England. I distinctly remembered that show because we played a Mahavishnu Orchestra/King Crimson medley that night and I think we only ever played it live 3 or 4 times. That wasn't the only interesting addition to the set list that night. "Easy Evil" was also a rarity in the set along with the opener "Strangest Times". "Shadowlands" was performed at the show as well and we rarely played new songs before they were recorded and released. All in all it was a blazing set that focused mainly on songs from Abyssinia, but also included a well rounded collection of songs from our previous albums.
The album title is a play on "Day of the Lords", a song by the band Joy Division from Manchester England, and cover of this official "bootleg" release is a tribute to many of the unofficial records I have from the 70s on infamous labels like Trademark of Quality, The Amazing Kornyfone Record Label (TAKRL) and Wizardo. In the early days of bootleg vinyl they just glued a photo copied piece of paper on a white jacket and called it good. The inspiration for this layout came from a David Bowie bootleg called "His Master's Voice", one of the first bootlegs I ever owned.

"If there's such a thing as fusing some soul into a doom palette, MOS GENERATOR has achieved that. Seldom will you hear an unambiguous merge between the two outside of BLACK SABBATH's "Sabotage". Mos Generator have tapped into a loud vibe featuring sinister and coarse nuances yet with something revealing far more heart". Ray Van Horn Jr.- Blabbermouth ... more
