About Trespass

Trespass is a lost metal artifact luckily preserved on the Metal for Muthas, Vol. II collection. Formed in Suffolk, England, by brothers Mark (guitar) and Paul (drums) Sutcliffe, the band toiled for three years before releasing "One of These Days" in 1979 on its own Trial label. An excellent cut recalling sinful Blue Öyster Cult, the song set Trespass on the crest of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Steve Mills (vocals), Cris Linscott (bass), and Dave Crawte (rhythm guitar) rounded out the band, who now brandished a powerful live prowess as well. However, second single "Jealousy" faded quickly. Robert Irving replaced Linscott, and Mark took the mic when Mills departed. Robert Eckland ultimately performed vox duties on an EP titled Bright Lights and the full-length Trespass in 1981. Around this time, Trespass landed two tracks on Metal for Muthas, Vol. II, a different recording of the debut single and "Storm Child." But the group never grabbed big label attention and disappeared. In 1988, the brothers resurfaced (with Crawte on bass) in Blue Bludd. Two Music for Nations recordings flopped, and this new incarnation shared the tragic fate of Trespass.
