Some less well known bands that done the circuit and influenced the mainstream P(p)rog bands of the early 70's however didn't achieve the same success.
I can only comment on the Scottish ones and there were some despite general knowledge that the UK's late 60's early 70's prog period was centered in S England. When I say Scotland I don't think there was much happening - prog wise in the likes of Auchtermuchty or Auchenshuggle so for this and according to my personal experience I mean Glasgow and Edinburgh
Hope this thread will include all other early prog bands from elsewhere so please post your favourite.
rredmond: I thought it was both?

marshall: No need to thank me by the way. I was a member of this Forum some year's ago but I forgot my log in details. I will do my best to contribute. I have been a Full can since the early singles and I have some fabulous memories as well as tales to tell.

steelmonkey: People my age learned of it and some of it from 'A Clockwork Orange', way back when.

steelmonkey: And I was taught that Tull members and crew called us civilian fans 'Billies' for Billy Bunter = Punter.

ash: My granddad would use Cockney rhyming slang now and then, more so if he was having a Darby. I will let him off seeing as he was born about half a mile from St Mary-le-Bow church.
