Bachman Turner Overdrive


Part 14 of the 2015 Jemtunes Rockography A-Z seems a move into the “B’s”. And no better place to start than Bachman Turner Overdrive.

Hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada, the band was originally formed under the name of ‘Brave Belt’ in 1971 by Randy Bachman and Chad Allen, both formerly from ‘The Guess Who”.

Having since sold over 30 million albums worldwide, the band have clearly proven that the change of name to Bachman Turner Overdrive was a sound business decision. Fans (of whom there are many thousands still) are affectionately known as ‘gearheads’ after the band’s gear-shaped logo.

Here’s ‘Sledgehammer’ from their 1974 studio album ‘Not Fragile’.
