were a British rock band of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Formed in 1967
in the wake of psychedelia
the band, composed of Alex Spyroulos and Patrick Campbell-Lyons, produced a number of singles (notably "Rainbow Chaser" and "Tiny Goddess") for the fledgling Island Records
, following them with the concept album The Story of Simon Simopath
. The records, like those of the early Pink Floyd
, were a combination of West Coast rock sounds with a peculiarly British whimsy. The next year their follow up, All Of Us
, repeated the success. By 1970 the band had all but split, with only Campbell-Lyons contributing to their 4 low selling later albums.
A brief renewal of interest in their work followed the rise of the 1990s grunge band Nirvana, whom Campbell-Lyons sued over their use of the name Nirvana.
