The Tiller Boys - Big Noise From the Jungle (1979) EP


Born Eric Ramsden in 1961, a teenage Random first recorded as a member of The Panik before joining Buzzcocks' road crew. In 1978 he became one-third of The Tiller Boys, an experimental trio formed with Buzzcock Pete Shelley and drummer Francis Cookson. Often referenced, yet seldom heard, the group reflected shared Krautrock/Fripp and Eno avant-rock preferences and were a regular feature on Manc-centric post-punk bills in 1978/79, making their live debut supporting Joy Division at the Factory (Russell) Club on 9 June 1978, a gig immortalised on Peter Saville's iconic Fac 1 poster. The Tiller Boys also supported Joy Division and Cabaret Voltaire at the Factory on 20 October, Gang of Four in York, and cut a single intended for Factory Records at Arrow Studio in January 1979. However these tracks - three slices of pounding percussion and Neu!-like guitar clangour - were destined not to appear on the new Manchester indie. (ltmrecordings)
