Prog Reviewer
3 stars Slightly obscure proto-prog band from Cambridge. There's little here to distinguish them from dozens of other similarly-intentioned acts from 1974, just another rock band with somewhat proggish leanings and a prominent organ player, but they do execute the style rather well.

"Decline and fall" and "Judas returns" are the tunes of greatest interest for prog listeners. Both are extended numbers with many changes, and strong organ work from Dag Small. Vocals by Sean Byrne are typically strong and melodic, and also very English. Some of the other tunes-like "When you lay it down" and "Don't bite the hand"-have slight proggish touches and "One (On my mind)" has a nice folkish feel, but for the most part this is straight, early 70's mainstream rock.

Progbear | 3/5 |
