Gil Matthews the former Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs drummer and founder of Aztec Records, is preparing Lobby Loyde’s Colored Balls album ‘The First Supper Last’ for re-release.

‘The First Supper Last’ was recorded in 1972 and was originally going to be called ‘Rock Your Arse Off’. It didn’t surface until 1976 under the new title ‘The First Supper Last (or Scenes We Didn’t Get To See).

The Colored Balls line-up for the album was Janis Migians on bass, Trevor Young on drums, Warren Morgan on electric piano, Andrew Fordham in guitar and Lobby Loyde on guitar, keyboards and vocals. Lobby produced the record.

‘The First Supper Last’ is historic as the first recording for Colored Balls. It was released independently through Rainbird, the short-lived label that also released Saltbush, Cash Backman, Bandicoot, Tapestry and a Normie Rowe single.

Note the American spelling of Colored Balls for this release. On all other recordings they were Coloured Balls.

Matthews’ Aztec Records also recently released ‘Lobbys Last … Summer Jam’. Lobby’s catalogue current on Aztec also includes ‘Ball Power’ (1973), ‘Heavy Metal Kid’ (1974), ‘Obsecration’ (1976), ‘Live With Dubs’ (1980), ‘Beyond Morgia: The Labyrinths of Klimsteer (recorded 1976, released 2007).

"Paul went away and started the label and George went away and wrote the song”, he said.
