Angel Pavement

Angel Pavement were an English chamber-pop/psych combo that was active during the late 1960s. Despite numerous recordings, the band’s output was limited to two 1969–70 singles on Fontana. In 2003, archival label Tenth Planet/Wooden Hill rectified the situation with Maybe Tomorrow, which collects the band’s surviving recordings.

Members: Alfie Shepherd [aka Clive “Alfie” Shepherd] (lead guitar), Graham Harris (bass), Mike Candler (drums, percussion), Paul Smith (lead vocals), Dave Smith (rhythm guitar, 1967-69), John Cartwright (rhythm guitar, trumpet, 1969-71)

Musically, Angel Pavement’s output veers between pizzicato-laden soft-psych (“Baby You’ve Gotta Stay“) and 2/4-thumping music hall (“Green Mello Hill”) — a balance similar to contemporaries Nirvana, The World of Oz, and The Idle Race.


  • “Baby You’ve Gotta Stay” / “Green Mello Hill” (1969)
  • “Tell Me What I’ve Got to Do” / “When Will I See June Again” (1970)
  • Maybe Tomorrow (2003 — recorded 1967–69)
