Bakery formed in Perth, Western Australia, in 1970.
One of the leading underground groups of their day, they are remembered for their superb debut album, Momento (1971), the innovative A Rock Mass for Love LP (recorded live in St George’s Cathedral, Perth, on 21 March 1971 in the presence of nearly 6,000 people) and the powerful single No Dying In The Dark.
The original line-up comprised John Worrall on vocals and flute, “wild-haired” guitarist Peter Walker, Mal Logan on keyboards and Eddy McDonald (bass) and Hank Davis (drums), both ex-members of The NZ Avengers.
Line-up changes came in 1971 and in 1972, with the four-piece version of Bakery probably the best remembered.
Bakery performed at the second Sunbury Festival in January 1973 and continued performing live until they disbanded in February 1975.
The band released only two singles during their career: Bloodsucker (1971) and No Dying in the Dark (1971).
