of the Canterbury Scene.

MATCHING MOLE
(2 albums 1972-73), which came to end , when he got paralysed after a fall out of a window.
His first  solo album , a mix from Freeform to Jazzrock was released in 1970 (it took me a long time -30 years- 
- to understand it - now Im  able to hear it) .
He had a break after the accident , but came back with his next effort in 1974.
Now on vocals and keyboards he released two great LPs on Virgin and even had a small single hit with
the NEIL DIAMOND song : Im a Believer.
It now became quiet till the 80s, when he started  releasing some rare 7inches first and with :
Nothing Can Stop Us - a new album in 1982. In his break he took part on some sessions.
. Since this time he is very active releasing some great albums.
