They only recorded a demo. One of the songs on the demo called A
Cloud As Big As A Man's Hand includes a riff that later was used on
VdGG's Killer (on H To He ...), which explains why messieurs Hammill,
Banton and Smith are stated as the Killer creators.
Judge's old schoolmate Max had played with Martin Pottinger in Cousin
Mary at Aberdeen College of Architecture (guested by Judge). With
Heebalob they wanted to combine the best parts of rock and jazz (rock
rhythm and tunes with jazz improvisations). They had a successful
appearance at the National Jazz, Blues & Pop Festival at Plumpton (on
August 9th) where they were spotted by Giorgio Gomelsky. They recorded
a demo for him and were offered a contract by his Marmalade label which
went bust the day they were going to sign. This really knocked them out.
Judge: "It was all hopelessly over-ambitious, seems to be the story of
my life. We were trying to play very difficult stuff, and with the possible
exeption of Dave, we weren't really up to it." (Singed Ground program
