Tom Newman Career

In 1968, Newman played in a band called July whose only album was the eponymous “July” on US Epic and UK Major Minor. Before that, he was in a British band called “The Tomcats” who were based in Spain. In 1966, the band recorded at least three EP’s on Spanish Philips (436387, 436388 and 436826).

In 1970, he began working with Richard Branson and helped build The Manor Studio in Oxford. It was there Newman met the 18-year-old Mike Oldfield who lent him a rough demo tape of what would become Tubular Bells.

In November 1973, he participated in a live-in-the-studio performance of Tubular Bells for the BBC. It is available on Oldfield’s Elements DVD.

Newman released some albums as a solo musician and produced several albums for other artists, most notably Mike Oldfield’s (Heaven’s Open, Tubular Bells, Tubular Bells II).

Reviewing his 1977 Fine Old Tom LP, Robert Christgau wrote in Christgau’s Record Guide: Rock Albums of the Seventies (1981): “Tom seems to have recorded this far across the sea in 1975, but more than that even my Anglophile sources can’t tell me.

Analogies: Ray Davies (vaguely but persistently, for both eccentricity and vocal approach), Dave Edmunds (studiomania and general non-esoteric musical orientation, although Newman isn’t interested in overpowering anyone), Eno (more precisely, not only for eccentricity and vocal approach but also for style of smarts, although Newman isn’t so blatantly avant-garde). Pretty catchy.”

Newman also worked with young NWOBHM-bands like Charlie ’Ungry.
