Combination Head is a new British progressive rock band helmed by keyboardist Paul Birchall. While Paul doesn't seem to have world-wide acclaim he seems to be in demand in the UK music scene, working with a number of recording artists. Combination Head doesn't just focus on Birchall's prodigious keyboard work. Keith Ashcroft hands bass and guitar while ex-Camel/10cc/Jethro Tull drummer Paul Burgess fits in perfectly. The music is very melodic and has a wonderful flow to it. Excellent stuff that takes me back to the 70s --> real fast! Highly recommended.
