Produced in London, England, in 1972, Hard Dreams comprised John Cann (guitar/vocals), Paul Hammond (drums) – both formerly of Atomic Rooster – and John Gustafson (bass; ex-Quatermass). They guaranteed a recording agreement with Purple Information, a label possessed by Deep Crimson, that they finished two large, power trio designed, choices. Hard Stuff backed Captain Beefheart And His Magic Music group on the 1973 UK tour, a musical mismatch which do very much to undermine the United kingdom music group’s emergent popularity. They split in 1973, and Gustafson became an in-demand program musician. Cann afterwards appreciated a novelty strike, ‘Don’t BE CONSIDERED A Dummy’ (1979), beneath the name John Du Cann.
