Once billed as ‘the heaviest band in the world’ THUNDERMUG featured Joe DeAngelis on vocals, Bill Durst on guitar and vocals, Ed Pranskus on drums and Jim Corbett on bass. Writing very unusual songs with the most intense driving beat of any band of that era they toured Canada and the States during the 70’s. Axe Records released their first single ‘You Really Got Me” (AXE 3) followed by “Africa” (AXE 4) in 1972, from the ‘Thundermug Strikes’ album. Due to space limitations, “Alex“, “It’s Coming Loose” & the original version of “The Investigator” were left off the original vinyl release and they appear now for the first time. ‘Africa’ became their biggest single and a cult favourite on the independent Big Tree label in the States.
