Northern band who had a lot of potential and were reputedly great live but never made the break through. Formed circa 1970, they played all original material from early on, toured the nothern circuit and then took in Dublin clubs and beyond. In his column in Spotlight magazine in 1973, DJ Pat Egan descibed their sound as dated, late 60s-ish, but with a nice feel.
Rotgut moved to London in 1973 where they met David Bowie and the MainMan organisation and toured with Carmen, then one of the MainMan stable of bands. This doesn't seem to have lead to a management deal however and the band split. Bill Craig emigrated to Canada in 1974 where he joined Edward Bear (big in Canada; the recordings on Bearsville Records do not feature Craig), Foggy Duo (late 70s/early 80s folk duo who recorded 3 albums, the last as Skyboat) and solo. See his website for more details.
