An Angel Called Lucifer is the debut album from rock giants-to-be The Ill-Fitting Garibaldis. Containing 12 tracks, with nearly an hour of music, ACL is the standout debut of not only 2006 but all time.
"The beast forced all the people to have a mark placed upon their right hands or on their foreheards... this mark, is the beasts name, or the number that stands for the name. Its number is 666."
The Prophecy of the Dark Angel foretold the rising of the beast would occur 760320 minutes before the turn of the second millenium: in 1989 this prophecy was fulfilled. No-one knows the exact spot from which Steve Wicked arose 16 years ago but it is told that from where he came, there are legions waiting for his command - with the release of 'An Angel Called Lucifer', Wicked finally can give the word to his people, and together they will join forces to change the music scene forever. The Leader will arise from the east, with his two disciples coming from the north and from the west. The first son of the first son of Lancelot Vangelis will emerge under a masquerade until his time comes.. From the north came Rory McButt and from the west David Picklesworth and together they became: The Ill-Fitting Garibaldis

▁▁▁▁ A WICKED PERSPECTIVE▁▁▁

▁ "A DECADE ON it's unfortunate to see this first release is a load of shite. Of course it couldn't be helped; the visionary artist I have become could only feel creatively stifled alongside the mediocrity of Picklesworth and McButt. When the standout moments appear on this record, needless to say I provide them all. All the guitar solos here stand out - unsurprisingly! My trademark triple-guitar aural-assault first appears during 'Priest On Fire' (and repeats during 'The End Of The Album Is Here'). My fat (phat?) tones on 'Dark Church' - not to mention that virtuoso tapping solo!!! - both hold up. Regarding the original liner notes, my birth prophecy was revealed to me by my (then) personal shaman, Master McWren. I appear to be having fun in this recording but it was simply steely reserve passed off in jovial fasion: I knew Picklesworth and McButt would have to go." SW 2017
