Home Artists - L to Z Artists - S Spirogyra


Formed in Bolton in 1967, acid-folk band Spirogyra found their wings in Canterbury in 1969 with a stable line-up of Martin Cockerham (vocals and acoustic guitar), Julian Cusack (violin and keyboards), Steve Borrill (bass) and Barbera Gaskin (vocals).

For the next three years, Spirogyra recorded, toured and raged against the laws of neglect and diminishing returns that left them eventually shipwrecked with their poor-selling albums becoming collectors items.
