Unlimited One-Day Delivery and more. I just added my thing to them. How long did the sessions last? Would you share some recollections from the sessions? How pleased were you with the finished product? It was recorded in a small studio in the city of Chester called Abbot Sound Studios and consisted of two — two track tape recorders for recording.
It was a nice place with decent facilities for small studio at the time. On the way through Chester trying to find the place we stopped a police motorcycle outrider to ask him the way, he did better than that and rode in front of our van giving us a police escort all the way there. To us we thought this is it! We have arrived.
I went back into the booth and just made a solo up on the spot and that first and only take is what you hear. I had to learn it afterwards for our live gigs. I know Owen McCann was not happy about some of his performance and wanted to re-do some of them but we were on the clock for time and money so could not let him and at the time we were lost in the moment and thought everything was alright and he was being too critical, but on reflection he was right I think.
The First Pinnacle compact disc of the Assassin a lbum was released with some extra tracks added from a live recording of a rehearsal from circa The vocals on the original recording from a cassette were pretty much inaudible. I think were initially made. Over the years I have noticed other Assassin recordings that I believe are unofficial releases.
I certainly had no knowledge of there release till I saw them for sale on Amazon. I have also seen an advert for the Assassin LP with a white centre piece on the record I could not make out the label.
The misspelling of Assassin on the album cover was down to a printing error and left like that by the record label Stagg Music. I have seen him over the years in Liverpool city centre pretending to play a cardboard guitar and going Plink a Plink a Plink to make a guitar sound, naturally he was known around the town as Plinky Plink.
I believe his name to be Jackson Nesbitt who has a bit of a following on the internet now. Doring LP housed in a purple sleeve accompanied with a picture postcard and poster of the band. On the cover is pictured a firing squad wall in green with a recently shot persons hand slithering down the bullet holed wall.
Differences in some of the unofficial releases. The serial number is missing top right and also Top left and bottom right logos are missing. There are other differences in other releases such as album cover is not gloss laminated.
The Word Pinnacle in plain white on others. Not in the slightest, it is purely music made by inexperienced young musicians exploring the musical and lyrical ideas for good original rock music, the opinion of good is down as always to the listening audience.
A4 Astral Traveller — About a time lord who travels through the space and time continuum experiencing all that the universe can teach, and seeing and befriending other beings not of human form. With regard to Pinnacle the first few weeks of writing and creating the music, and going into the studio and making a record. That whole experience. Then taking that music out and playing it and seeing that the audience appreciated our work, also the great feeling you get when playing live and knowing the music sounds tight and is rocking.
Going on a small tour of Holland being the first time ever I had left England. The experience of recording and being on TV was a good moment plus we spent two days down in Birmingham in a top class hotel all expenses paid. The band played traditional Irish music in the style of the Pogues. The place was always packed and not much room to move. During a break traditional Irish music was blasted from the house system.
There was an elderly lady who took pride in being able to do high leg kicks whilst doing her dancing and with very little room and the stage being of the low type you find in bars, then dancing of any kind was limited, and a bit dangerous if you got in front of her.
She kicks her leg out this one time and somehow caught Pauls Mandola and sent it flying and broke the neck clean in two pieces. We played the Liverpool Stadium a boxing arena , for us a great honour as all the main rock bands of the time played there, it was a show of up and coming local bands, Supercharge, Nutz and Pinnacle. Being bottom of the bill we had to set up last… Well, looking at the stage when in the audience as I had done for many shows, you would think the stage was massive… What a disappointment there was hardly any room at all for us and to top that I had a very large monitor blasting organ in my ears, which sent them ringing for hour afterwards.
And worse still we only did twenty minutes which went by in a flash. From the stage we saw a lit wire sparkler fly through the air and stick in a persons head still sparkling away, funny really as it was March not November. Anyway a huge let down of a show from my point of view. Energetic Happy Hypnotic. Romantic Sad Sentimental. Sexy Trippy All Moods. Drinking Hanging Out In Love. Introspection Late Night Partying.

Features Interviews Lists.NB: Reissued on CD as Cyborg Assassin (Kissing Spell KSCD ) with three additional tracks taken from a live cassette circa A rare privately-pressed album by a Liverpool heavy rock band. The spelling of the title is theirs. Musically, this is a sonic assault with pounding drums and bass and frenzied keyboards. Powerful stuff indeed.
