Name That Band

(From the Umlaut Archives)

This 94-page book was published in the U.K. in 1981 by Bobcat Books. It was the first book that documented Heavy Metal that included the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) bands. The book had credibility because one of the co-authors was Malcolm Dome, who wrote for the godlike Hard Rock / Metal English weekly Sounds. Dome later wrote for Kerrang!..

So, yeah, if you were trying to name your fanzine or band... you'd probably find inspiration is all kinds of places... It's a good thing Lars didn't choose "Encyclopedia".
