Quatermass was a British progressive rock band formed in London, England in September 1969. Lauded as a band of the future on the release of their debut album and supplementing single, "Black Sheep Of The Family", major commercial success eluded the band throughout its brief duration. The trio consisted of bass player and vocalist John Gustafson, keyboardist Peter Robinson (born J Peter Robinson, 16 September 1945, in Fulmer, Buckinghamshire) and Mick Underwood on drums, all well-established and previously distinguished musicians who had met while playing in Episode Six. As Quatermass, these musicians strove for a distinguished organ-tinged sound, with swinging rock coupled with striking ballads. Their first and only album sold itself through "...compactness, wealth of ideas, forceful lead vocals and complicated arrangements, enriched by pianist Robinson's tasteful use of classical strings which are on display along with spacious keyboard passages at their height in the mold of The Nice."[1]
The band took its name from Professor Bernard Quatermass, a fictional scientist who had been the hero of three science-fiction serials produced by BBC Television in the 1950s.
