From: Carlisle, England
Art originally hailed from the northern England city of Carlisle, evolving out of the blues-rock band the VIPs. They released one LP (Supernatural Fairy Tales), which was produced by Guy Stevens. Highlights on the album include 'Love Is 'Real' and an excellent cover of the Buffalo Springfield classic 'For What It's Worth', which they retitled 'What's That Sound (For What It's Worth)'.
Members of the group included Mike Harrison (vocals, keyboards), Luther Grosvenor (guitar), Greg Ridley (bass) and previous Locomotive member Mike Kellie (drums). If this lineup sounds familiar, it's because they evolved into Spooky Tooth after adding Gary Wright to the band in late 1967.
