Biografie

The roots of Cressida were sown in March 1968, when guitarist John Heyworth answered an advertisement in Melody Maker, and later travelled to London to join The Dominators, a band whose situation he later described as „hopeless - until Angus Cullen applied for the lead singer spot“. He and Heyworth hit it off immediately, and Heyworth was invited to stay at Cullen’s family flat in Barkstone Gardens near Earl’s Court. The pair settled down to some serious writing, eventually welcoming bassist Kevin McCarthy and drummer Iain Clark to the fold and now calling themselves Charge.

The band’s early setlists included covers of songs by The Doors („Spanish Caravan“), The Drifters („Save The Last Dance For Me“) and Spirit („Fresh Garbage“), alongside original compositions by Cullen and Heyworth. In the Summer of 1969, shortly after returning from a German tour, the band’s organist Lol Coker decided to leave, and moved back to Liverpool to marry his Swiss girlfriend and take over his father’s business. He had stayed just long enough to play on the band’s first demo, which got them a recording contract with Vertigo Records.

Peter Jennings then joined. „I was auditioned at the Roebuck pub in Chiswick, a place they sometimes used for rehearsals“, he later remembered. „I imagine we ran through a 12-bar or two and possibly they tried me out on one of the numbers from their set, but anyway they liked the way I fitted in and I joined them that day“.
