To all Mordred fans who read this blog, I've just received a message from frontman Scott Holderby who states, "Please help us reach 1,000 likes (on Facebook). If we reach 1,000, the promoters in UK will work with us. Thank you.
So guys and gals, get 'liking'.

Mordred reunion?

Just to let Mordred fans know, Scott Holderby, Danny White, James Sanguinetti and Art Liboon joined forces recently for a jam in San Francisco. DJ Pause and Gannon Hall were not in attendance for the jam, but Pause did hook up wit the guys. I may be able to post some photographs soon. I wouldn't look into this reunion too seriously, but ya never know.....!!

The t-shirt I used to have...

Here's the Mordred t-shirt (front) I used to own, among several others which all mysteriously disappeared, sadly. These were purchased at the gigs between 1991 and 1992. Not the greatest of the band's t-shirts, but still a cool shirt.

Mordred/MCM & The Monster advert

This interesting poster turned up on ebay a while back. It features MCM & The Monster who DJ Pause was part of. This would've been a great show!

Mordred flyers etc

There are a few Mordred flyers, posters, etc circulating on the net, here's just a few snippets - with credit to demoarchives, and metallipromo etc.

Mark's Mordred memories

I was contacted by a chap named Mark Bowes, and he shared not only his memories of Mordred live, but a photo of the ticket. Cheers!
" I was fortunate enough to see them live at the Glasgow Cathouse (when it was located on Brown St, now gone sadly)....I've managed to dig out my ticket and take a picture for your website as you've displayed some other tickets from back in the day.

Obviously '91 is a long time back but what I can recall is that the main floor stage in the old Cathouse was pretty small and as such the band were dotted around the place, definitely someone (probably the dude on the decks) was away off to one side. I remember also being down the front (it was a decent turn out but not overly busy) and myself and some girl that was attending asking one of the guitarists for a which he replied it was his only one! :D

Back in the days when you could see a top qwol band for a deep sea diver! :D They probably didn't take to the stage until 11pm......them were the days! Too bad all the kids stealing music through downloads have pushed ticket and merch prices through the roof as no-one buys music anymore!

I got into them through airplay for 'Falling Away' on Headbangers Ball or The Power Hour (before it went to schit), bought 'In This Life' on cd and I think I picked up 'Fool's Game' on cassette...I'm not sure if I ever got 'The Next Room' but it's now on my Amazon list.

Anyway I enjoyed a read through your site (what I managed on the quiet at work yesterday) and fortunately remembered to snap a pick of the ticket before I left for work this morning."

Morded's second demo on YouTube

For those of you interested in a slab of some old school Mordred, then  check out their second demo, from 1987, which someone has uploaded to YouTube. Listen HERE. The tracks are 'Reckless Abandon,' 'In Cold Blood,' and 'The Scars Remain.' And for those of you who want to sing along I attach the lyric sheet from inside the demo. Cool stuff.

A couple of previously unseen pictures...

Mordred poster

Any idea which magazine this poster came from?

More Mordred memories

A chap named Paul emailed me to share a few of his favourite Mordred memories, he wrote:

"I was lucky enough to see them at the bierkeller in Bristol '91 - they stopped me and my girlfriend a few streets away to ask for direction to the venue. I'll have to check out my old leather jacket, I'm sure Scott wrote 'Are you wilder than a drunken fight?' on it along with his name.
Think they were listening to AC/DC in their mini bus when they arrived. Pause wasn't with them.
We then ran back to the 'keller to meet them etc. They were so so cool!
If I remember correctly - Scott threw up into a bag onstage-think he may have been too pissed, seemed bit drunk when we saw them in the afternoon, - I'm sure he skipped singing a few songs too. All the rest of the band drank and played pool with us/our mates from Bath for the rest of the evening after the show, band said Scott was ill. Amazing night.
I also play bass, so talking bass with Art for ages will always be a great memory for me, I was so shocked that he used to play along to Maiden records when he was learning to play the bass - exactly as I had done when I was learning to play."
