BRAM STOKER

A brief history

Bram Stoker was formed in the summer of 1969 by Hammond organist Anthony Bronsdon, guitarist Pete Ballam and drummer Rob Haines who, as the founding members of Bram Stoker, then recruited bass guitarist John Bavin, all of whom were based in their south coast home town of Bournemouth, England, UK.

Bram Stoker 1969Guitarist Pete Ballam and drummer Rob Haines had previously been working together in their own local band for two years prior to Bram Stoker being formed and had already formed a tight bond, and in meeting Hammond organist Anthony Bronsdon they found a kindred spirit - young, enthusiastic and inspired by the progressive trend of the time.

Bass guitarist John Bavin (who has worked as a recording engineer on projects with Dave Stewart of Eurythmics fame, Kiki Dee, Bob Dylan, Mick Jagger, Darryl Hall (of Hall & Oates), Rita Coolidge, Sam Moore (of Sam & Dave fame)) brought not only his unique vocals and guitar playing to Bram Stoker but also his abilities at songwriting and composing original material, which complimented the songwriting and composing talents of the other members of Bram Stoker's classically trained Hammond organist, Tony Bronsdon, and guitarist Peter Ballam. Combined with this chemistry the Bram Stoker line up was complete and history was in the making.

In composing their own material and experimenting with new musical styles, Bram Soker were choosing their own musical direction, although the band was influenced by the Gothic image, its music varied, and inevitably the band acquired the "progressive classical Rock - Gothic Rock" label tag it is so famously identified by.

Before setting out on the road they rehearsed throughout that summer in a dis-used nightclub in Poole. It was to be the start of a busy schedule. One of the early gigs was as support act for the Who at Bournemouth Pavilion. Roger Daltry front man of the Who, asked for details of the band and invited them to record a demo album at his home in Berkshire. A few months later Bram Stoker was signed up to an independent label owned by Rolling Stones manager Tony Calder. From the vast circuit of clubs, colleges, universities and festivals (booked to play at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 with Jimi Hendrix and others) throughout the UK the band developed the loyal following as cult artistes they are today.

Although Bram Stoker was influenced by the Gothic image, its music varied. inevitably the band acquired the "progressive classical Rock" label but strived and succeeded in creating its own identity. Tony Bronsdon's classical training is augmented by a formidable technique; his Hammond organ sound is majestic, biting and haunting. His stirring ability to integrate his classical interpretation into musical compositions written by himself and jointly with Pete and John, with drummer Rob Haines' driving rhythms, resulted in a wide variety of unique performances of Bram Stoker songs and instrumentals. Guitarist Pete Ballam encouraged an original approach and his antics on stage were spontaneous and unpredictable, his legendary "Doppler" (a spinning speaker cabinet) had to be seen - and heard - to be believed.

Bram Stoker TodayDrummer Rob Haines and bassist John Bavin also embrace fresh ideas, providing an individual and creative approach to their role as rhythm section. While John's melodic themes and ethereal vocals are integral to Bram Stoker, his musical and dextrous bass lines breathe life and weave unity through every arrangement. Rob Haines applies his own ideas to Bram Stoker's symphonic style; his inimitable spinning cymbal emphasises the mood of the song Poltergeist.

Bram Stoker enjoyed a wonderful period of interest in the music industry during the period from 1969 through to 1972 and this is shown in the wake of the Heavy Rock Spectacular album and its original 12" vinyl release on the Windmill Records label in 1972.

The fan following on the Internet grows daily with fresh blood. Bram Stoker re-formed in 2004. Original members Tony Bronsdon (Hammond organ) and John Bavin (bass guitar/vocals) have been joined by Pat Flynn (guitar) and Pete Rumble (drums)

Bram Stoker's, Anthony Bronsdon (Hammond organ), Pete Ballam (guitar) and John Bavin (bass guitar) are introducing more previously unreleased material for their second album later this year (2007). In September the official CD release of the Rock Paranoia album will also be available from all Internet download stores worldwide

BRAM STOKER - "ROCK PARANOIA" (ten track album release)

The progressive rock band Bram Stoker was formed in Brighton, England, UK, in the summer of 1969 by Hammond organist Anthony Bronsdon, guitarist Pete Ballam, drummer Rob Haines and bass guitarist Jon Bavin.
In 1969 Bram Stoker, who were influenced by the gothic image, signed a recording contract with independent label owner and Rolling Stones manager, Tony Calder. Inevitably, as the band progressed, they acquired the musical progressive classical, gothic-psychedelic rock tag they are so famously identified by today.

Bram Stoker's performances in the UK and Europe comprised the vast circuit of clubs, colleges, universities and festivals. They were booked to play at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 with Jimi Hendrix after which they gained further loyal following as the cult artistes they are today.

Anthony Bronsdon's formidable technique on Hammond organ created a sound that was so majestic, biting and haunting, that their performances were respected on the same scale as bands such as Argent and Yes. Anthony Bronsdon's stirring ability to integrate his classical interpretation into musical compositions written by himself and jointly with Pete Ballam and Jon Bavin, combined with drummer Rob Haines' driving rhythms, resulted in a wide variety of unique performances of Bram Stoker songs and instrumentals. Guitarist Pete Ballam encouraged an original approach and his antics on stage were spontaneous and unpredictable. His legendary Doppler effect (a spinning speaker cabinet) had to be seen and heard to be believed.

Bram Stoker's music is captured on the recordings contained on this "Rock Paranoia" collectors album release, which contains two previously lost tracks, recorded many years ago and found in old storage archives, which are included here with the eight tracks from the original 1972 Windmill Records UK release. The recordings have been digitally re-mastered to create a ten track collectors item from the English progressive classical, gothic-psychedelic rock cult rock band Bram Stoker released exclusively on Digimix Records.
