There was even a stint as a cover band called Dr. Robert in '93/'94. In the later '90s, they had finally amassed enough material to record an album. Being that they were not full time musicians (with regular jobs and families), getting the group together took time.
This would prove to be a constant problem, and the reason for the band's instability. The initial two releases were home made affairs. 1999's "Fin de Siecle" was the first proper release. This was followed in 2003, by the album "Tales of Ardour and Deciet." It would prove to be their last, as McCoy finally ended his partnership with Carvalho in 2004. Their influences are obviously from the '70s, most notably Jethro Tull and Gentle Giant. There are also touches of King Crimson, Genesis, and the Moody Blues.
Although they are more recent, this band is highly recommended to fans of '70s prog. 2) EtCetera is a gospel choir from Riihimäki, Finland, and it's artistic leader is songwriter Pekka Simojoki. Etcetera consists of ordinary working adults from different field as well as students and stay-at-home parents. The choir is a wonderful hobby and a natural connection to the Christian fellowship.
