Jon Edund quit in the autmn of 2002 before the extraordinary H&M gig. Bjørn Viggo left in the winter of 2003 to move abroad. Geir left in the summer of 2003 to work abroad. Leif Erlend left in the summer of 2004 to work abroad.
Geir returned late 2004, and Arne Tøn joined the band on keyboards at the same time. The music has clear roots to the experimental and progressive rock from the period of 68-75, and has a sound that reflects this. The band takes you into the sombre, powerful prog-landscape, with melancholic moods and psychedelic atmospheres. Often taking unexpected turns, adding surrealistic and peculiar touches. Drenched in heavy hammond organs, gloomy mellotrons and jazzy el-piano; combined with classical instruments like cello, flute and saxophone. The debut album entitled Watch for the umbles was released on swedish Transubstans records in february of 2006 and received great reviews in the international prog press. Also, Gargamel is an alternate name for Buju Banton, and there are several other artists who use the name Gargamel.
