Master Cylinder biography
MASTER CYLINDER is an American Canterbury act who appeared in the early 1980s to release a single album, Elsewhere. The lineup consisted of keys, guitar, bass, drums, and various guest play woodwind and brass instruments, making the album an eclectic gem of Canterbury's finest sounds.
The band existed for only a short time, was signed to Inner City Records, and released Elsewhere in 1981 before blinking out of existence. The jazz in this album may be stronger than most Canterbury albums, but connections to CARAVAN and other early Canterbury acts can be seen.

3 stars Master Cylinder is an obscure american band who manage to release only one album in 1980 named Elsewhere isseud at unknown label Inner City Records . A jazz rock band clearly influence by canterbury movement with National Health or Caravan as similarities but I can trace some Happy the Man progressions in their music aswell. This is quite good release, a total unknown and forgotten album that might be considered as a lost canterbury treasure. Not much is known about this band, they gone into oblivion fast but there are some nice synth parts,jazzy brass arrangements aswell primarily constructed with progressive flavours. 3 solid stars maybe 3.5 in parts.
