let's just stay above the moral melee
prefer the sink to the gutter
keep our sand-castle virtues
content to be a doer
as well as a thinker,
prefer lifting our pen
rather than un-sheath our sword

Do you have some bio info on this? I will then submit this to the team. It's a bordelaine case for heavy prog on my first listen

I'm afraid I gave all the info I could find.

I'm not even able to locate the band of the album on Discogs (too common names)

I found this below the YT video

"Consisting of Roger Cotton (vocals, guitar, keys), Ian Gibbons (flute, keys, vocals), Richard Thorpe (bass, vocals) & Paul Thorpe (drums, vocals). This obscure quartet issued their sole album on UK Polydor in 1974 & produced by Chris White, formerly of the Zombies and a songwriter with Argent. The band's most notable member was Ian Gibbons. In 1972 he joined Moonstone (who issued three 45s), then formed Life. Though it has gone on to enjoy a degree of cult acclaim, 'Life After Death' vanished without trace upon its release in the summer of 1974. Unsurprisingly, they split soon afterwards, with Gibbons going on to a long career, first with the band English Assassins, then the Kinks (with whom he had a long association), and also the groups ..Love Affair, Uriah Heep's Ken Hensley (in Shotgun), Sweet, Ian Hunter and many others."
