ANDROMEDA was a blend of psychedelic, progressive, jazz and hard rock power trio which lasted only long enough to release one album. They were formed back in '68, by John Du Cann, later of ATOMIC ROOSTER, after the break of his previous band, THE ATTACK. Du Cann (guitar), along with Mick Hawksworth (bass) and Jack Collins (drums), recorded a psychedelic rock project named THE FIVE DAY WEEK STRAW PEOPLE, being a concept album much praised by collectors nowadays. After recording this project, the three decided to form a band that was called ANDROMEDA. The band started to gig, record demos, live material, etc, but without a recording contract. In '69, they were helped by John Peel, after recording sessions for Peel's show Top Gear. It was arranged for them to record a single, by RCA, for Peel's label Dandelion; later they signed a contract to record an album which was self titled. The band had some disagreements with Peel by the time Collins left, being substituted by Ian McLane, and they broke the contract. Though the band toured with BLACK SABBATH, recorded several live radio performances and even Pete Townshend from THE WHO showed his interest to produce their album, nothing turned out as expected, but they could hold a contract with RCA, were they released their only, self-titled album in '69. The album was acclaimed by critics, but had no great success among the public, so they never released another material again. Du Cann left in late '69 going to form Atomic Rooster, along with Vincent Crane and Carl Palmer from ARTHUR BROWN BAND. The other members tried to continue with new guitarists, but the band soon split.
