Progressive Hard Rock act unfortunately now noted more as a conduit for various known musicians than any lasting impressions left by their albums. MAY BLITZ was created in 1969 by former BAKERLOO men bassist Terry Poole and drummer Keith Baker after their guitarist Clem Clempson had upped and left for COLOSSEUM, Joining them with the fresh band was front man vocalist / guitarist Jamie Black. Before MAY BLITZ got into the studio Poole departed to join VINEGAR JOE and Baker quit ending up in URIAH HEEP for their 'Salisbury' record.

Undeterred, Black pulled in bassist Reid Hudson and ex-JEFF BECK band, SOUNDS INCORPORATED and live session drummer for THE HOLLIES, Tony Newman. The band were soon snapped up by Vertigo Records.

Two albums followed, neither of which sold in quantity. MAY BLITZ soon splintered with Newman teaming up with THREE MAN ARMY before creating BOXER. The drummer would also appear on DAVID COVERDALE's 'Northwinds' album in 1978.
