They smile beaming with joy into the camera: Mikael Åkerfeldt from Opeth and next to him Kevin McCarthy and Iain Clark, bassist and drummer of Cressida respectively. The joy is justified, as Cressida's performance at the Melloboat Festival in September 2013 was something very special for all three of them, as the group is one of Åkerfeldt's absolute favourites - and in 2013 Cressida's active musical career began more than 40 years ago. But who is the band that Mikael Åkerfeldt described in 2004 as "Cressida are absolutely fascinating, but totally unknown. No one has heard of them. That's a shame, because it was a great band."
Why wouldn't Leonard Cohen's son sound like his father? In the eighties nobody was surprised about Julian Lennon's very independent style and also the solo debut of Paul Simon's son Harper reminded strongly of his producer.
