Diamond Lil - "Patron of Hell" b/w "The Loser" 45 1976

 Diamond Lil was formed in 1975 and continued until 1978. The group started in Braintree, Essex as a cover band, playing popular numbers from Wishbone Ash, The Pirates, and Thin Lizzy as well as some other rock classics. During their first year, they did a complete 180 and played only their original material having penned over forty songs. You can read their entire history HERE
It was the idea of  Malc McMillan (of Zerlinder Records, editor, historian and author of a N.W.O.B.H.M. covering the late 70's to 80's only.) to release this 45. The plan was to release a limited run of 500 &" singles, all hand numbered. The result was these two songs, recorded in 1976, and released in 2005.
