THIS WEEK ON PHOENIX RADIO:
The Birmingham band Locomotive relased only one album - We Are Everything You See (1970) - and several singles before splitting up. Keyboard player Norman Haines formed his own band, while other notable members of Locomotive included saxophone and flute player Chris Wood, later of Traffic, and drummer Mike Kellie, who joined Spooky Tooth.

Norman's new band was Sacrifice, signed to Parlophone and consisting of lead guitarist Neil Clarke, singer/bassist Andy Hughes, and drummer Jimmy Skidmore in addition to Norman on keyboards.

However, by the time the band released its first and only album, the Sacrifice name had been dropped in favour of the Norman Haines Band.

Recorded at London's Abbey Road Studios, the 1971 album Den of Iniquity was a mixture of progressive rock and more commercial tracks, as well as one, Mr Armageddon, which had been on the Locomotive album. It even included a lovely accoustic folkie ballad, Bourgeois, written and sung by Andy Hughes.

The album, while critically acclaimed, was not a commercial success. The band broke up in 1972, with Haines apparently turning down an offer to join Black Sabbath.

To hear more about Norman Haines, and his band's short career, then listen in to The Norman Haines Band - In Focus with Dave Hewitt on Phoenix Radio at 8pm on Saturday.

Once again, Saturday evening is when Phoenix Radio turns to its dark side. DJ Cruel Britannia presents Fadeout - an hour of the best in goth, darkwave, industrial and alternative. It's a good introduction for those listeners just getting to grips with the genre and an unashamed wallow in favourite tracks for the more dedicated.

So pull on your leather and join Cruel Britannia on Fadeout every Saturday at 7pm, as usual on Phoenix Radio.

Paul Baker will foray into the world of Prog Rock on Sunday. As usual on Soundscapes, Paul will review the latest releases, talk about and to the major artists in the genre, and perhaps even get out one of his infamous 'long tracks'.

To find out what's happening on the Prog scene, be sure to tune in to Phoenix Radio from 3pm every Sunday for Soundscapes with Paul Baker.

Wednesday night favourite Ian has a wide range of musical tastes. From post-rock to post-metal, post-punk to post-hardcore. That's why he hosts (POST) - a weekly look at everything that no-one else plays.

So whether you like Cult of Luna, Isis, Pelican, Mono, Sigur Ros, This Will Destroy You, Porcupine Tree or a host of other 'cult' bands, listen in to Ian's favourites on (POST), this and every Wednesday at 7pm on your favourite station - Phoenix Radio.
