What follows is a year by year outline of the history of the band - it goes on a bit, but quite a lot went on! There are many more tales to tell over and above this summary of events, and many people who really deserve a mention - there were five of us in the band but we could never have achieved half of what we did without so many fantastic friends and associates, and corny though it is, without all the thousands of fans who, let's face it, were the reason we were able to avoid getting grown up jobs for so long :) We intend to add some links and more content to this section in future...
David Gilmour was the lead guitarist and, along with Roger Waters, lead vocalist for the progressive rock group Pink Floyd.

Musical Chairs is an experimental free-flow improvisation collective which centers around one goal: the non-stop creative search for excitingly new, beautiful music. Anything can happen as virtually all musical genres are eagerly explored and originally woven together in ways no one could have ever foreseen.

Binary Band is formed of the sparring vocal harmonies, dobro (slide guitar) and harmonium (missionary organ) of Ali Thoburn and Billy Tudor, and complimented by the occasional electric piano and pieces of catgut, dusty wood and rusty metal. The resulting sound is an earthy, wide-screen brew of American roots, English psychedelia, film soundtracks, North African blues and Far Eastern influences that brings to mind Neil Young, The Low Anthem, Peter Gabriel, The Band, Tinariwen and Traffic.
