A great melodic track featured in the movie ‘Nightmare on Elm Street 5 – The Dream Child’ (1989). Enjoy!

Possibly the only band ever to celebrate both guitar playing and being dangerously overweight, Mammoth were a short-lived but much-celebrated offshoot of the 1980s UK rock scene.
After the acrimonious split of Gillan in 1982, the charismatic bearded John McCoy (bass guitar; 19 stone) recruited session musicians ‘Tubby’ Vinnie Reed (drums; 22 stone), ‘Big’ Mac Baker (guitars; 24 stone) and Nicky Moore (vocals; 20 stone and 5’6″) for his solo project. Initially christened ‘Dinosaur’, they changed their names after complaints from a similarly titled California blues outfit.
Changing their name to ‘Mammoth’, the band toured with Whitesnake and Marillion and were generally well-received by fans, although a near-disastrous incident in Leeds meant that the band had to request a specially reinforced stage at all future gigs, due to the concentrated pressure of some 1200 pounds1, plus jumping-up-and-down allowance.
Produced almost retrospectively in 1987 (the band had since ceased touring), this eponymous title received a limited edition release on American indie label, Jive. As the bands nostalgic popularity increased, the few records that were released became collectors items – vinyl copies of the album trading hands for as much as £60.
Recruiting the much-renowned Bernie Tormé as session guitarist, John McCoy and Engineer Simon Hanhart developed a deeply textured sound that was criticised by many fans of their live shows as being over-produced.
Mammoth may not have played a huge part in rock history, but the same can be said for a thousand other bands. Nevertheless, by having enormous talent and energy on stage, for being fat and proud of it, and for initiating some of the scariest mosh pits in history, they are remembered by a dedicated core of fans.


There’s evil in your eyes
I can see the signs
Waiting for a chance to strike
What is it I have done?
You used to be such fun
Now all you do is kick and bite
Can’t take the hurt any more
This love ain’t worth fighting for
Can’t take the hurt
Got malice on your mind
Gonna win this time
Feel you moving in for the kill
What happened to my world?
What happened to us girl?
Somehow I have lost the will

Can’t take the hurt any more
This love ain’t worth fighting for
Can’t take the hurt any more
This isn’t love, it’s a war
I can’t take it no more
Can’t take the hurt any more
This love ain’t worth fighting for
Can’t take the hurt any more
This isn’t love, it’s a war
I can’t take it no more
Can’t take the hurt any more
This love ain’t worth fighting for
Can ‘t take the hurt any more
This isn’t love, it’s a war
I can’t take it no more
