Anno Domini

Formed in Dublin, Ireland by ex-EIRE APPARENT guitarist David “Tiger” Taylor, ANNO DOMINI also featured expat Aussies and Sweaty Betty musicians/brothers John and part-timer Trevor Jones. Roping in songwriters Dave Mercer and Kerry Scott, the quartet (as pictured on the sleeve photoshoot of their sole LP, ON THIS NEW DAY (1971) {*6}) were heavily inspired by the works of the BYRDS (example the set’s opener `So You Want To Be A Rock’n’Roll Star’); other covers comprised DION’s `Daddy Rowlin’’ and Don Dunn & Tony McCashen’s `Hitchcock Railway’ (the latter better known to JOE COCKER fans). Whether psychedelic or folky, the melodic style of the group was best presented by tracks `Bad Lands Of Ardguth’, `The Good Life I Have Known’ and `The Trapper’.
Splitting up not long afterwards, John and Trevor formed the appropriately-titled Jonesy, while Tiger joined Brown & O’Brien, Dave Mercer went solo and Scott joined up with T.F. Much.
