Product Description

Fuchsia-S/T-'71 UK Obscure Progressive Folk-NEW LP


'71 UK progressive folk-

new LP


Originally released in 1971, the FUCHSIA album is one of the best examples of British progressive & psychedelic folk-rock, full on inventive arrangements and songwriting.

Produced by David Hitchcock (Caravan, Mellow Candle…)

Here’s a long overdue vinyl reissue.

Fuchsia was formed by a group of Exeter University students. They were Tony Durant (previously of psych band Louise) on acoustic/electric guitars and vocals; Michael Day on bass and Michael Gregory on drums plus the three-piece classical ensemble of Vanessa Hall-Smith (violin, backing vocals); Janet Rogers (violin, backing vocals) and Madeleine Bland (cello, piano, harmonium, backing vocals). Signed to Pegasus Records (the “progressive” branch of B&C Records), Fuchsia recorded their self-titled album at Sound Techniques studio with producer David Hitchcock (Caravan, Mellow Candle, Genesis, Camel…) The main inspiration for the album was Tony Durant’s readings of Marvyn Peakes gothic novels such a Titus Groan and its fictional character Lady Fuchsia Groan.

Like some of their contemporaries (Comus, Mellow Candle…) Fuchsia only started gaining recognition in the following decades, thanks to fans of obscure psychedelic folk.
Today, Tony Durant leads a new version of Fuchsia, still playing and recording.

“Recommended to fans of bands like Spirogyra and String Driven Thing”
– Aaron Milenski (Galactic Ramble)

Side 1: 1. Gone With The Mouse – 2. A Tiny Book – 3. Another Nail
Side 2: 1. Shoes and Ships – 2. The Nothing Song – 3. Me and My Kite – 4. Just Anyone

reissue for this obscurity of British progressive folk.

With an unusual and unique line-up -a male typical rock trio with a female classical strings trio- Fuchsia made this gem in the late 1971. Moving more on the rockier side of the 70's progressive scene than on its folk one, the band created a completely original sound with complex arrangements and "multi-rhythmic" patterns, excellent musicianship, charming melodies and lot of adventurous musical ideas.


This 1971 UK progressive folk album has male and female vocals and features complex whimsical arrangements with cello and violins etc, this is a rare slice of progressive folk in a similar style to Principle Edwards Magic Theatre and Momus.
