Colonel Bagshot – was a British rock band formed in late ’60s in Liverpool, England. Originally called ‘Colonel Bagshot’s Incredible Bucket Band” were initially 6-piece, eventually becoming a four-piece.
Last line-up included Brian Farrell (vocals, guitar, stylophone), Ken Parry (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Dave Dover (vocals, bass, keyboard), Terry McCusker (vocals, drums).
The band released few singles and one album “Oh What a Lovely War” in 1971 which included their best known song “Six Days War” later remixed by DJ Shadow, called Six Days. And after 30 years, with Shadow sampling from Six Day War and featurings in some movies, take the album from it’s dusty shelfs and introduced us one of the best rock albums in history.
Brian later went solo and the other guys formed another band called ‘Bunny’, who went on to support the popular Glam Rock/Pop band, Slade, on their tours.
Kenny Parry later joined the band, Liverpool Express-whom still play to this day. He is also a member of a well-known Country band, Hambone, which also features Brian.
