Incredible String Band
How does one adequately describe this group? Some may say they sound weird. That was my initial reaction when I first heard the album The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter, but this opinion soon changed as I began to understand the genius of what The Incredible String Band were doing. I became hooked and began buying every ISB album I could get my hands on.
That was forty years ago and I still listen them. They sound as fresh and as magical now as they did when I first began listening to them. So how would I describe them? The name of the band says it all. This is incredible dream music.
