Their albums feature excellent vocal harmonies that would have fit right into any BEATLES or TRAFFIC album of old. As influences go, we could cite BIGELF, PINK FLOYD, KING CRIMSON, ATOMIC ROOSTER, CARAVAN, ARGENT, and definitely THE BEATLES. Both of their albums, "London Underground" and "Through a Glass Darkly" (a spoof on an old STONES compilation LP), are a real throwback to the swinging 60's and early 70's; in fact, if it wasn't for the clean production, you'd swear these were recorded in 1970. The first album revisits the late 60's psychedelia whereas the second is fully early 70's progressive. The overall sound is very British (these Italian vocalists possess an impeccable command of the English language, b.t.w.) and both albums are expertly played and well produced.
Is it prog? Well, it is definitely experimental yet accessible, delightfully retro and thoroughly enjoyable. Very cool stuff! Their most recent album, "Honey Drops" is a very enjoyable album, largely comprising cover versions of well known tracks, such as Jethro Tull's "Dharma For One". Excellent albums for a trip back to the hip days, with tons of Mellotron. All are highly recommended. Discography: London Underground (2000) Through A Glass Darkly (2003) Honey Drops (2010) 2.
A reggae band who recorded on the On-u sound label. London Underground were one of the very first On-U Sound groups but were largely left behind as the label established itself as a sonic force to be reckoned with. Read more on Last.fm.
