About The Mind Doctors
The Mind Doctors formed in the
early 70's (exact date unknown) comprising Martin
Weaver (Guitars) and Dave 'Doc' Wadley
Martin and Dave had previously been in assorted heavy
progressive Rock Groups, Martin in Dark and Wicked Lady, Radar, etc. and Dave
in Soft Thrust, Back to Zero etc. In the '60's Dave also worked with Tony Iommi
of Black Sabbath fame.
Bored with the heavy rock scene (and after a heavy
night drinking!) they decided to team up as a duo to produce crossover 'head'
music encompassing all musical styles. This gave Dave a chance to use his
classical training to great effect, (check out Track 3: Praedludium 3, On the
Threshold of Reality C.D.) It also gave Martin an excuse to stop smashing
equipment and play some thoughtful Guitar!
The two experimented with early synthesizers
and effects to produce vivid landscapes of sound designed to give the listener
an audio film experience (it works with or without funny cigarettes).
Listen to the C.D. loud in a darkened room and you will see what I mean. The
C.D. is available from specialist music shops on Kissing
Spell - KSCD 9597 or order a tape copy direct from Dave Wadley.
This is the first recording from the duo, Moon Winds of which a remixed extract
appears on 'Threshold' will follow next.......
