ENGLAND - Endless odyssey

England is often referred to as the last prog band of the seventies. When their only studio record came out, Progressive Rock was already in the throes of death. The group itself came to an abrupt end due to a series of unfortunate coincidences - which is why keyboarder/singer Robert Webb, who has lived in Greece for fifteen years, looks back on this time with a laughing and a crying eye. "In the heyday of progressive rock, between 1967 and 1977, the musicians had every freedom to do what they wanted," explains Webb, who once sawed his Mellotron in half for transport reasons. "For two hundred years the British had had no musical style of their own. Progressive Rock thus offered the opportunity to create an independent music in Great Britain."
