Originally formed in 1977 as Revelation Rockers, a name they soon changed, by the early 1980s, Talisman were consummate performers and vying to be one of the country’s most popular live bands.
They toured the UK building up a loyal following and leaving memories of gigs that are still discussed to this day. The band’s prowess earned them support slots with acts as diverse as Burning Spear, The Clash and The Rolling Stones and they were more than capable of playing in such esteemed company.
Despite their undisputed talent a major record deal never materialised and until now the only way to hear Talisman has been to track down their two difficult to find singles from 1981.
Bristol was rocking just as hard as London or Birmingham and Talisman were a large part of the reason why!
2011 sees the original line up reform after 30 years to play some UK shows ….. Check them out!
