Lineup so far
Ian Anderson plays the best of Jethro Tull

Focus

With their unique brand of progressive rock, Focus manifested themselves at the start of the ’70s as the most successful and appreciated of all the Dutch pop-rock exports.

Caravan

Caravan was the first UK act to sign with American label MGM/ Verve and their debut album, entitled ‘Caravan’ was released late in 1968. It was favourably received by the critics and the debut single, Place of My Own was described as having a ‘gripping compulsion’ with ‘scintillating organ work’. John Peel played the album regularly on his radio show ‘Top Gear’.

The Crazy World of Arthur Brown

Arthur is best thought of for his 1968 Number one single Fire that still gets regular airplay all over the world and has been covered by the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Die Krupps, The Prodigy and The Who.

The Enid

Formed among friends in 1974, the Enid invented a school of intelligent, powerful and romantic rock music which is unique to them. The band have gone on to record 14 studio albums.

Curved Air

Considered (according to AllMusic) “one of the most dramatically accomplished of all the bands lumped into Britain’s late-’60s prog explosion”, Curved Air is a pioneering British progressive rock group of musicians from mixed artistic backgrounds.

Solstice

September Code

Twinscapes
