Profile
Syn (sometimes The Syn) was a British psychedelic band that released a couple of well-regarded but unsuccessful singles in 1967. The band is chiefly remembered for what its members did afterwards: Chris Squire and Peter Banks went on to the first incarnation of Yes. The band reformed with some of the original members (not including Banks) in 2004 to record new material.
