Previously known as The Dundee Horns, Mogul Thrash were a Scottish progressive brass rock outfit put together by sax players Roger Ball and Malcolm Duncan (later to form the Average White Band), bassist John Wetton ( from King Crimson, later to join Family, Uriah Heep, Asia and a host of others), guitarist/vocalist James Litherland( ex-Colosseum, later to join Edwards Hand, Bandit and Leo Sayer), drummer Bill Harrison, trumpet player Michael Rosen and none other than Brian Auger, piano, on one track. It's a pity that Mogul Thrash only recorded the one album, because they had the potential to rival bands such as IF, Keef Hartley and other brass rock outfits. The album is available on CD and is a worthwhile addition to the collection.

Biography by Jason Ankeny
British jazz-rock band Mogul Thrash evolved from James Litherland's Brotherhood, which in addition to guitarist Litherland (an alumnus of Colosseum who formed the group in 1969) also featured guitarist/reedist Michael Rosen, drummer Bill Harrison and the so-called "Dundee Horns" — saxophonists Roger Ball and Malcolm Duncan. With the addition of ex-Splinter singer/bassist John Wetton, the group rechristened itself Mogul Thrash, debuting in 1970 with the single "Sleeping in the Kitchen"; their self-titled RCA album appeared the following year, going largely unnoticed at home but finding favor throughout much of Europe. However, faced with legal problems with their management, Mogul Thrash was forced to disband shortly after the record's release; while Wetton went on to join Family and later King Crimson, Duncan and Ball soon reunited in Average White Band.
