Spirogyra

Formed in Canterbury, England in 1970, Spirogyra was one of a group of young progressive folk bands signed to B&C Records at the same time as Steeleye Span. The band was formed by writer Martin Cockerham, vocalist Barbara Gaskin, Julian Cusack and Steve Borrill. Dave Mattacks played drums on their debut album in 1971. The sound on St. Radigund’s and the follow-up Old Boot Wine was similar to early Strawbs but also drew on the progressive ideas of the Incredible String Band. The songs sounded whimsically English and Gaskin’s voice gave them a pure, unsullied air. The final Spirogyra album, 1973’s Bells, Boots And Shambles, was recorded by Cockerham and Gaskin alone. Gaskin went on to work with Hatfield And The North and enjoyed a surprise UK chart-topper in 1981, in partnership with Dave Stewart, with a cover version of Lesley Gore’s ‘It’s My Party’. (NB: Not to be confused with the US jazz rock group Spyro Gyra.)

It's clear why Spyro Gyra was a little more successful.

Interesting. . . I'd heard of the jazz ensemble with the same name, different spelling but not these guys. This sounds much better than any jazz wankery I've ever been subjected to, plus they used the name first so good on them.

Since Spirogyra recorded most of their music in the early 70's, and Spyro Gyra began in the mid-70's, the question of copyright infingement is backwards.

what happened to the artist bios?

Poor Chaucer -- I'm glad he wasn't alive to hear that.
