Henry Cow was an English avant-rock group, founded 1968 at Cambridge University by multi-instrumentalists Fred Frith and Tim Hodgkinson. Chris Cutler, John Greaves and Lindsay Cooper were also part of the early lineup, and vocalist Dagmar Krause from German band Slapp Happy joined 1975. Henry Cow was a groundbreaking group for their time with a sound based on vocal harmonies and avant-jazz instrumentation. Their four studio albums; Leg End, Unrest, In Praise of Learning and Western Culture, are all superb, as is the live album Concerts.
