Get It In The Nec


NECROMANDUS have announced a special hometown show on Friday September 22, 2017 at Whitehaven Civic Hall.

Frank Hall expects it to be an emotional occasion:

“It will be great to bring Necromandus back home for a celebration of our unique sound and the passionate fans who love it. Baz, Bill and Dennis would be so chuffed if they only knew how great the reviews and coverage of the new Necromandus album has been. I’m dedicating this return gig to their memory. ROCK ON GUYS!”

22nd WHITEHAVEN – Civic Hall, Lowther Street, CA28 7SH

The tale of Necromandus always deserved a happy ending. Circa 1972-73 this fast-rising Cumbrian quartet found themselves under the managerial wing of Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi, recording a debut for the hip Vertigo imprint.

Sadly, and suddenly, the band fell apart, and the Necromandus recordings remained lost and forgotten for 20 years. Rediscovered and bootlegged in the 1990s, by the time their ‘Orexis Of Death’ debut was officially reissued in 2010 three-quarters of the band – guitarist Barry Dunnery, vocalist Bill Branch and bassist Dennis McCarten – had died, leaving drummer Frank Hall as the sole surviving custodian of the band’s legacy. And Frank was determined that Necromandus should rise again.

‘Necromandus’ is out now via Mandus Music

CD & 180 Gram Vinyl pressings are available for pre-order
