Profile
Gnidrolog was a British progressive rock band, with a sound that was compared to better known bands such as Van der Graaf Generator, Jethro Tull and Gentle Giant. The band was founded in 1969 by twin brothers Colin and Stewart Goldring, who were joined by drummer Nigel Pegrum from Spice (the band that would later evolve into Uriah Heep), Peter "Mars" Cowling on bass, John Earle on vocals, and Charlotte Fendrich on piano. They came up with the strange band name by reversing and slightly rearranging the brothers' surname.
