That Hideous Strength were a three piece from Brooklyn N.Y. I couldn't find much info on the band. They did release another single; But I don't remember ever hearing it. I'm not sure whether, or not this record was actually meant to be taken seriously; (but in my opinion) More Powerful Than A Steaming Locomotive, is excellent. It's one of those songs, that's hard enough to keep your attention; but it's quirkiness, and sense of humor, make it a classic.
Band Members Were:
Roy Wagner - (Guitars, and Vocals)
Mike Ober - (Guitars And Vocals) I found this page with a little bit on Mike.
Harry Britwar - (Bass, and Vocals)
