Legendary Australian guitarist

Loyde first came to prominence under the pseudonym/alias Barry Lyde in the Brisbane rhythm and blues band [a=Purple Hearts, The] in 1965. In January 1967, he left to join the second incarnation of the Melbourne band [a=Wild Cherries, The], writing most on the band's four singles for the Festival label.

The Coloured Balls played punk rock four years before punk emerged in the UK: heavily influenced by US bands, [a=MC5] and [a=Flamin' Groovies, The]. The band released their debut album, "Ball Power" (1973).

Prior to living in the UK, Loyde also released the album "Obsecration" (instrumental) as well as writing a science-fiction novel (manuscript lost) and concept album "Beyond Morgia: The Labyrinths of Klimster" (2007).

Back in Australia, Loyde also worked as a record producer with [a=Machinations], [a=Sunnyboys, The], The Red Crayons, Tablewaiters, [a=Kevin Borich], X and [a=Painters And Dockers].
