Twenty-Five Views of Worthing were formed in 1970 by Watford school friends Roger Hillier and Mark Sugden out of the ashes of their psychedelic band Primrose Path.
They were signed to a management deal with Island Artists in 1972 and supported the likes of Genesis, Caravan and Mott the Hoople, although a recording contract with Island Records never transpired.
Thankfully the band recorded several tracks using downtime at Island's Basing Street Studio, which have never previously been released. Continuing with various line-ups throughout the ‘70s, the band also cut a rare independent EP in 1977.
Mixing the Canterbury sound with a dash of art-rock, their music is recommended for fans of Soft Machine, Caravan, Egg and Hatfield & the North.
