NIGEL BENJAMIN discography

Nigel Benjamin's first bands were Grot and Fancy, formed with friends from Southend in the early 70s. Fancy changed their name to Billion Dollar Band first, and then Royce. He joined Mott in early 1975 and stayed with them for two years and two albums. After Mott he formed English Assassin but the band broke up when Arista chose not to release their album. Nigel moved to Los Angeles in 1980 and has lived there since, playing with glam metal bands Satyr, London and The Eyes in the early 80s before he took up work behind the scenes in the music industry in the late 80s. He finally released his debut solo album "In The Absence Of God" in 2011.

The discography below details all the records Nigel Benjamin was involved with before and after his time with Mott. The Mott discography is found in the Mott section. Newest releases are on top.
