Midlands super-group backed by Wizzard's Bill Hunt release brand new E.P

Birmingham | Entertainment | Published:

Bill Hunt & the Ancient Order of Froth Blowers are set to release their brand new E.P El Original Brew on December 15.

Written as the follow up to Wizzard's classic B-Side 'The Carlsberg Special', the follow up track arrives 44 years after the original and will be released on special beer coloured vinyl and digitally.

A special 'El Original Brew' beer will be accompanying the release courtesy of Birmingham's Froth Blowers Brewery and appearing in local pubs and bars across the country this December.

In 1972 Bill Hunt wrote the B side of the first Wizzard single, Ball Park Incident, which sold over 250,000 copies. The original title was to be The Light Fantastic, but vocalist Roy Wood wasn't so keen, as there was a local Birmingham band of the same name. So the band re-named the track, The Carlsberg Special (Pianos Demolished Phone 021 373 4472).

The inclusion of Bill's home number in the title led to his phone ringing non-stop and double non-stop at the weekends.
