Birmingham's [i]Locomotive[/i] took a strange musical path, but on their way this innovative band created several classics. Traffic's [a=Chris Wood (2)] was an early member, but it was vocalist/guitarist [i]Norman Haines[/i] who took control. Having recorded for the [l=Direction] label, Locomotive moved to [l=Parlophone] for "Rudi's In Love", a bluebeat/rocksteady song which established the group's name. However, Haines then pulled an abrupt volte-face, unleashing the almost gothic "Mr Armageddon" in 1968.

Haines then completed Locomotive's lone album [i]We Are Everything You See[/i] with the aid of Mick Taylor (trumpet), Will Madge (keyboards), Mick Hincks (bass) and Bob Lamb (drums), before disbanding them altogether and forging the [i]Norman Haines Band[/i].
