BULLET - Hobo / Sinister Minister (Purple 1972)
After they left Atomic Rooster in 1971 due to disagreements about the band's increasingly bluesy direction, John Du Cann and Paul Hammond, together with vocalist Al Shaw and John Gustafson, released this heavy proto-punk single under the name Bullet, the first release on Deep Purple's Purple Records label. Following this released they changed their name to Hard Stuff, leaning more heavily on aggressive guitar work. French issue, produced by Bullet.
