Eugene Carnan were a 3-piece rock band from the Rhonda Valley in South Wales who has a short lived career in the early 1970’s ;
Lead Guitar & Vocals - Adrian Llewellyn
Bass Guitar - Mickey Williams
Drums - Mick Evans
The band were part of a movement that saw rock start to morph into metal. A typical live set would feature cover songs by hot bands
of the time - Black Sabbath, Rory Gallagher’s Taste and Wishbone Ash as well as the bands arrangements of ‘rock standards’ such as House of the Rising Sun and Rock Me Baby. However, from the band’s very beginning they started writing and performing their own songs which can best be described as melodic riff-based rock.
These songs became the core of the groups live performances and were always well received and the band started to build a small but keen fan base and in early 1972 they went into a small studio and put down on tape some demo’s of their own songs.
However, it was only a few months later that the bass guitarist decided to leave and despite auditioning several possible contenders a suitable replacement could not be found and effectively the band split.
Largely as a souvenir of the bands existence the tapes from the recording session were make into just 4 “white- label “Acetate LP’s. - one for each of the band and one of the roadies.
