We are an independent UK band of virtuoso professional musicians.
Our last album Cardington got to number 4 in the UK Indie chart without so much as a play on mainstream radio.
The new album Altitude was crowdfunded by our dedicated fans in 40 countries worldwide (including 36 US states) and has been compared to everything from Steely Dan to Pink Floyd to U.K.
We toured the UK in 2022, made our fourth appearance on Cruise To The Edge and played at De Boerderij in The Netherlands. For 2023 we have more UK dates in the diary, our first German tour since 2019, a gig in Poland and a return to De Boerderij.
In July 2023 we released a live album recorded at last year's Netherlands concert and a Blu-ray version is to follow.
John Young (Asia, Scorpions, Bonnie Tyler) Vocals & Keys
Dave Bainbridge (Iona, Strawbs) Guitar & Keys
Jon Poole (Cardiacs, Dr Hook) Bass & Backing Vocals
Zoltán Csörsz (Flower Kings, Quincy Jones, Stu Hamm) Drums & Percussion
As an independent release sold by the band, Altitude is not eligible to follow its predecessor into the official charts. Nonetheless it reached the Top 100 in the Amazon UK charts and was Number 1 in the US Gagliarchives radio chart (for 14 weeks) and in the Dutch iO Pages magazine chart.
Altitude was voted No 2 album of 2021 in the Prog Magazine Readers' Poll, with individual accolades going to John Young (1st keyboards) and Dave Bainbridge (3rd guitar).
