Tapestry of Delights:
This band's roots lie in a series of Soft Machine-influenced groups from Dulwich College. They formed in 1970 but later disbanded in February 1972 having found it hard to get gigs or a recording contract (Warner Brothers had financed some demos but nothing had come of them). In February 1972 Phil Manzanera joined Roxy Music, MacCormick went off to Matching Mole and then Gong and Hayward joined Mal Dean's Amazing Band (who didn't make it onto vinyl), High Tide (in their final months) and Gong.
The album was recorded when Manzanera reformed the group in December 1974 on the strength of his success with Roxy Music. Mostly instrumental, it's essentially a jazz-rock orientated progressive album, which is unusual in both rock or jazz-rock terms. Its finer moments include Sol Caliente, which has a slightly Spanish feel and very good fuzz guitar leads by Phil Manzanera, and Bargain Classics, a very different dreamy number with floating keyboards.
MacCormick and Manzanera went on to play together as members of 801 (1976-77).
