Audience was a London-based group that recorded their first album in 69 and had their eponymous debut pulled from the stores a few months after its release, which makes the album a major collectible (CD versions were also hard to come by until a recent reissue). They got signed by Tony Stratton-Smith of the Charisma label (Genesis, Van der Graaf Generator, The Nice and a few others) but although not a purely progressive group, they bore a lot of characteristics of the masters...

Among which , a profound (and somewhat derangesome) singer whose voice reminds you a bit of Peter Hammill, a great wind players able to switch to from flutes to saxes and oboe and a bassist.
Three more albums were released under the Charisma label , and Friend's Friend's Friend is easily their best although the much-better known House On The Hill is equal in quality, both featuring tight frenetic and high-energy rock but also virtuosity and inventiveness. No real long epics, but plenty of space for all musicians to expand themselves and minor classic tracks like "Raid", "Jackdaw", "Priestess" and "House On The Hill" can be called minor classic in their own right. Then, the band seemed to want to take things a step further by adding three extra musicians writing a concept album that was supposed to be their crowning achievement. Sadly the album was only partially succesful and the band folded almost immediately after due to internal friction.
