Tapestry of Delights:
Rod Argent formed this band in 1969 following the break-up of The Zombies. The remaining line-up consisted of his cousin Jim Rodford and former Roulettes Russ Ballard and Bob Henrit.
Their debut album Argent was very much in The Zombies' mould. One of its stronger tracks was Dance In The Smoke which brought the band to the attention of a much wider audience by virtue of its inclusion on the double budget compilation, Fill Your Head With Rock. Another of its songs, Liar, was covered by Three Dog Night in the US, where it became a hit, whilst Cast Your Spell Uranus was included on the Together! compilation.
Their subsequent albums were heavier in style but yielded two UK hits:- the classic Hold Your Head Up and God Gave Rock 'N' Roll To You. The All Together Now and In Deep albums sold well in this country.
In May 1974 Russ Ballard left the band to pursue a solo career, releasing a solo album Winning (Epic SEPC 69210) in 1976. He was replaced by guitarist John Grimaldi and John Verity. Following the flop of their Circus album, they switched to RCA for Counterpoint, which fared no better and in 1976 they split.
Rod Argent went on to pursue a solo career. Henrit opened a drum shop in London's West End and played in a band called Phoenix, with Rodford before they both joined The Kinks.
