Van der Graaf Generator is an English progressive rock band, formed 1967 in Manchester by singer-songwriters Peter Hammill and Chris Judge Smith. With their experimental approach to vocals and instrumentation, coupled with arcane subject matter, they achieved cult status but little commercial success. The band's unique sound featured the interplay of saxophone, organ and rhythm section against Hammill's distinctive vocals. Unlike most bands of the time, electric guitar did not feature in their sound. Band mainstay and creative force Peter Hammill has many excellent solo albums to his credit. Outstanding VDGG albums include The Aerosol Grey Machine, The Least We Can Do Is Wave to Each Other, Pawn Hearts, H to He and After the Flood BBC Sessions.
