TOM THUMB – the little band with the BIG sound – from 1966 to 1970 Tom Thumb from Wellington, New Zealand had a fierce reputation in the windy city’s live scene. In those four years, two incarnations of the group cut 8 singles and one ground breaking prog rock EP.

Collected here for the first time are Tom Thumb Mark 1 whose garage snarl can be heard with them busting out versions of You’re Gonna Miss Me, Whatcha Gonna Do About It, Got Love etc with fuzz and fury, and four unreleased tracks from early 1967 incl Sorry She’s Mine, Litle Girl.
Tom Thumb bass player Rick White’s earlier group the Relics can also be heard on this collection with their fuzzy take on Hanky Panky

In 1969 Tom Thumb Mark 2 heavy takes on The Alan Bown’s Still As A Stone, Jim Pepper’s Witchi Tai To, and The Small Faces version of If I Were A Carpenter, as well as a horn driven Hey Bulldog have all become sought after by record collectors.

In January 1970 Tom Thumb recorded New Zealand’s first progressive rock record ...The Ludgate hill EP. Produced by former Me & The Others drummer Peter Dawkins, it tells the sonic tale of the nuclear devastation of Ludgate Hill in London. Now available in its complete form with powerful guitars and keyboards from Brian Mason and Keven Frewer respectively.
