Band/Artist Bio

Extremely obscure psychedelic outfit out of Switzerland released the trippy sound-collage Cottonwoodhill album in 1971. Further albums were guided by keyboardist Joel Vandroogenbroeck, including two late in the decade.


British-influenced prog rock band from Switzerland released one fantastic album, produced by Claudio Fabi.


Swiss-born Patrick Moraz and Jean Ristori formed the band with vocalist David "Kubie" Kubinec (ex World Of Oz) and Bryson Graham, as Integral Aim, and later Mainhorse Airlines. Yugoslav Kubinec departed in 1970, the band shortened their name to Mainhorse, added Peter Lockett and signed to Polydor to release their eponymous album. Drummer Bryson Graham would later join Spooky Tooth.

Moraz, Patrick

Best known for his ever-so-brief dalliance with Yes, Swiss-born Patrick Moraz spent the early 70s prog-rocking with Mainhorse, and then in London with ex-Nice members in Refugee. After an unceremonious boot from Yes in 1977, Moraz began a prolific solo career, while also touring with the Moody Blues.
