Roughyed Forgotten rock bands of the 70s (242* d) RE: Forgotten rock bands of the 70s 23 Feb 10


Anyone else see Trash supporting Curved Air at the Free Trade Hall in Manchester around 1975? One of the best performances I ever saw, they blew Curved Air off the stage I thought. Pierre(?) Van Der Linden was on keyboards. He was the brother of the drummer in Focus, Rick Van der Linden as I recall.

Tonto's Expanding Headband did an album of electronic music around 1971 the like of which would not be heard for another 10 years. How about Comus? Featured Viola, wierd vocalist and even weirder lyrics. A bit later Sad Cafe had a couple of nice singles but never quite made their potential. How about Wally?
And what is egregious about the marvellous Roger Chapman. He was pretty rough with microphones as well as tambourines.
