Profile
Hatfield and the North was an experimental Canterbury scene rock band that lasted from October 1972 to June 1975, with some reunions thereafter. The original members were Phil Miller (guitar, from Matching Mole), Phil's brother Steve Miller (keyboards, from Caravan), Pip Pyle (drums, from Gong), and Richard Sinclair (bass and vocals, from Caravan). By the time of the recording of their first album, Dave Stewart had come in on keyboards, and the Northettes (Barbara Gaskin, Amanda Parsons, and Ann Rosenthal) provided backing vocals. After the second album, several members went on to form National Health.
