Among Steve Howe’s several obscure pre-Yes tasks, Bodast filled the space between his stint in Tomorrow and his recruitment for Yes. Aside from Howe, the lineup contains Clive Skinner (vocals, acoustic guitar), Dave Curtis (vocals, bass), and Bobby Clarke (aka Woodman) (drums). Curtis and Clarke experienced previously played collectively in ex-Searcher Chris Curtis’ short-lived group Roundabout, composed of the part of the music group that didn’t result in Deep Crimson, and Clarke returned to playing inside your home music group (playing skiffle) in the famous 2 I’s espresso pub in Soho through the past due ’50s, and following gigs with Screaming Lord Sutch and Vince Taylor’s music group. Curtis’ previous function had included documenting supported by his very own music group, the Tremors. Being a psychedelic-cum-progressive rock and roll clothing, Bodast was a unusual hyperlink between those skiffle and early rock and roll & roll root base and early-’70s artwork rock and roll. Bodast slogged throughout the underground circuit in 1968 and 1969, hardly ever releasing any formal product; some curiosity for Deep Purple’s label (Tetragrammaton) found naught, plus they rarely performed live, although they spent plenty of period composing and rehearsing first material. Howe in fact turned down presents from the Fine and Jethro Tull out of commitment towards the group, but finally quit following the Tetragrammaton offer failed to arrive through. They do record some unreleased materials in 1969 with ex-Tomorrow vocalist Keith Western world making. These tapes, ultimately released in the ’80s, demonstrated them to end up being an average music group reflecting the changeover of United kingdom underground rock and roll from psychedelia to intensifying rock and roll; it’s appealing mainly to Howe supporters, but even after that, it is not among his even more notable work.
