Bio / info
Nirvana is a psychedelic band formed in London in 1965 by Irish musician Patrick Campbell-Lyons and Greek composer Alex Spyropoulos, who wrote the music, sang, and played some instruments, though much of the music was performed by hired studio players. Their debut album, The Story of Simon Simopath, is regarded as one of the first rock concept albums, coming out in 1967 a few months before the Moody Blues' Days of Future Passed. Live appearances were quite rare, though studio work continued apace and the duo produced two more albums before Spyropoulos bowed out and Campbell-Lyons recorded two more albums under the Nirvana name before embarking on a solo career. The band reformed in 1985 to play a few shows and release some new material.
