The Ogdens

A retrospective by The Ogdens has been released on Firestation Records. "Hellish Mad Rush" contains no less than 22 tracks, featuring their singles, previously unreleased tracks and live recordings.
The Ogdens were formed in 1986 by Jon Fagg, Andrew Milton, John Phillips and Vince Woodward. Vince left Britain to live in the US, and John Devenney joined in 1987. Karen Andrews was with the band for a year or so and played the trumpet. The band released three singles, and the first one was NME "Single of the Week" in 1988. John Peel regularly played the band's songs on his radio shows.
