Fish Rising

"The first and some say the best solo album from ex-Gong axeman. With Gong, Hatfields and Henry Cow personnel on board this is an exceptional album."
Space Shanty

"Released on Mark Powell’s own Eclectic Discs Label. This first and only album by Steve Hillage’s pre-Gong band had been long sought after as it is an excellent slice of Canterbury style prog."
