Aka Bloom-Dido Bad-de-Grass, Didier Malherbe's post-Gong work included the vastly underrated fusion outfit Bloom, before continuing into the 80s on a world-fusion path, which included work with Zao's François "Faton" Cahen and in Hadouk, with Loy Ehrlich.
Missus Beastly had two distinct eras during their existence; the first early one produced their debut, an album of atypical psychedelic rock for its time, and the second a much more promising fusion sound similar to Embryo.
Expatriate Italian fusion outfit, led by Elio D'Anna and brothers Rustici all ex Osanna. Recorded their first album at Pete Townsend's Eel Pie studios, and were joined by Percy Jones and Narada Michael Walden for their second, which saw international release. Renato Rosset, ex New Trolls Atomic System, replaced Rustici brother Danilo. For their third and fourth album, Nova picked up the rhythm section of Ric Parnell and Barry Johnson. Their high energy fusion gradually matured into some rather soulful and sophisticated pop by their final album, Sun City, released in 1978.
Featuring namesake Mike Patto on vocals and Ollie Halsall on guitar along with the rhythm section of Clive Griffiths and John Halsey, Patto began when the members of Deram-signed Timebox signed with Vertigo Records. Their debut album was produced by Muff Winwood, but despite the pedigree, success would remain elusive for this blistering live act. Halsall and Patto would later form Boxer with Tony Newman and Keith Ellis, while Halsey and Halsall would become Rutles.
Italian guitarist was just 17 when he became a member of Cervello. By the mid 70s, with brother Danilo of Ossana fame, he started fusion band Nova. The 80s saw Rustici move to the USA for a prolific career as a session musician, and eventually a producer. His production work since that time includes some of Italy's finest musicians, such as Zucchero, Elisa, PFM and Negramaro. His solo works are top-flight fusion records, highlighting both his songwriting and considerable guitar technique.
