Van Der Graaf Generator

Led by the indefatigable Peter Hammill, perhaps the most original and significant group of the era; even "without the capes". Hammill is a complicated character, and so then is Van Der Graaf Generator: one moment placid and sympathetic, the next fierce and chaotic. His lyrics border the depth of literature, while his music, epic in nature, benefited from the band's original arrangements.

Founded: 1968
