The Battered Ornaments

Under Appreciated


Chris Spedding has played with a lot of the English heavy hitters, including early work with a band called Pete Brown and His Battered Ornaments.  They played at a famous Hyde Park concert in July 1969 that also included the Rolling StonesBlind Faith and, at the very beginning of their career, King Crimson.  When Pete Brown was later pushed out by basically everyone else in the band, Spedding became the front man in the Battered Ornaments; and his fame began to grow.
