Fat Mattress - Fat Mattress I - 1969


So, a while back I read an article in a magazine about Jimi
Hendrix and in the article it was mentioned that his bass player,
Noel Redding, had a band called Fat Mattress which they often
used as an opening act to save time on finding one.
It apparently annoyed Hendrix a little because this meant
that Noel would be getting paid twice for the same gig,
so he'd often make fun of it. I thought this was a pretty
interesting story, but I never put too much thought into it
until I was listening to the song 'She's So Fine' on Hendrix'
album 'Axis Bold As Love' and Immediately I noticed that
it sounded a lot different from the rest of the songs on the
album and it was definitely not Hendrix singing,
so I did a little research and found out that Noel both
wrote and sung the song. I really liked the sound of it,
so I decided to find a Fat Mattress album and check it out.
The album is surprisingly good and sounds a lot like
the style of 'She's So Fine' except without Hendrix'
bad ass guitar playing. Still, although it would have been nice
to hear Hendrix play on a few more Noel songs, the album
is still really good and original and should really be given a chance
by anyone who likes Jimi Hendrix and the Experience.

I was a big fan of Fat Mattress, mostly for Neil Landon's great vocals, and saw them live in October 1969 at Watford Town Hall (and saw Johnny Winter there a year later). You can see them performing "Naturally" and "Mr. Moonshine" on YouTube. Pity they were so short-lived. Neil's still performing but mostly in Germany.

Great to see these anecdotes.

I put Magic Garden and Bright New Way on tape along with Stephen Stills, The Band, Butterfield Blues, and a lot of New Riders, and listened to it till it got eaten for the last time. (That was 10 yrs ago.)

I just searched on Magic Garden and got reunited with these two great songs.

I remember they went well with the Band's Ragman, and Stills' Tophat of the Peanut Man.

Add the Outlaw's Girl From Ohio to that mix.

It is a great band, one of my favorites actually, not because the bass player used to pay with Hendrix.
