Their music reflects feelings of anti-establishment prevalent amongst the young at that time, and was quite visionary in its approach.

Simon Lanzon - Keyboards, Piano, Accordion and Vocals and Mike Thomson - Bass, 12 String Guitar and Vocals. Producers - Tony Reeves and Open Road. Engineers - Robin Black and George Chiantz.
