Active for just two years and two albums, Automatic Man was a San Francisco-based band that played music with an eclectic mix of influences, from space rock to krautrock, funk to heavy metal.

Drummer Michael Shrieve left Santana in 1975. While recording the album Go with Stevie Winwood, Stomu Yamashta and others, he met guitarist Pat Thrall and the two decided to form a a new band together. Keyboard player and vocalist Bayete (real name Todd Cochran) and bassist Doni Harvey completed the lineup.

The first album, simply titled Automatic Man, was recorded in London. Released by Island Records, it contained the single My Pearl which would become a minor hit.

After a year on the road, the band broke up on its return to the United States. Shrieve left, as did Harvey, and they were replaced by Glenn Symmonds on drums and Jerome Rimson on bass.

The second album, Visitors, was released in 1977. It wasn't as well received as the first album, and the band finally dissolved shortly afterwards. Most of the band members went on to forge successful careers as session musicians and producers, but the Automatic Man experiment was over.

To learn more about this short-lived band and its mustic, listen in to Automatic Man - 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.

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