Flamborough Head

Flamborough Head has existed since the beginning of the nineties. Keyboard player Edo Spanninga felt it was time to start a band which would make progressive rockmusic, a musical flow which was nearest to Edo’s heart but in which he had never been active before. Frans Wolf (keyboards & drumcomputing) and Wiebe Wolf (guitars), both former members of Saga oriented progband Made in Holland, were interested in writing and recording. Along with Siebe Rein Schaaf (vocals) they went on as a quartet.

Born in the UK in the '70s as The Lens, IQ remained, with Marillion, one of the very few progressive rock artists in the '80s. The style of their earlier material drew constant comparisons to that of groups like Genesis, but the band has always rejected the 'neo-progressive tag bestowed upon them.
