Jan Dukes De Grey


Jan Dukes De Grey was a progressive-folk band, and only released two albums in their short life span. Jan Dukes De Grey formed in 1969 and were one of the very last prog rock bands to be signed to Decca's prog label. They originally started out as just a duo and were rivals to glam-rock band T Rex. Their first album, "Sorcerers" was a typical acid folk album, not particularly adventurous but showcased Derek Noy's and Michael Bairstow's multi-instrumental talents. Read more on Last.fm

Their first album, "Sorcerers" was a typical acid folk album, not particularly adventurous but showcased Derek Noy's and Michael Bairstow's multi-instrumental talents. The album made little impact and is only available through bootleg.

But their greatest work was to come, with the addition of drummer Denis Conlan they recorded their masterpiece "Mice And Rats In The Loft" in 1971. Consisting of three lengthy, psych drenched tracks, It was a lot more free form than their last and had much more progressive leaning, with use of a large assortment of instruments, even utilizing an orchestra. Sadly the album made little impact, and Jan Dukes De Grey disbanded after its release. A brilliant recording that never received its proper praise.

Recently re-released by Breathless records, the album is starting to gain some deserved recognition. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
