Home / Biography / Samson


A short foray in to the world of progressive jazz rock and roll saw the Manchester, England-based music group Samson hailed in a few quarters as another big thing, on the tail end of 1969. Their extremely original sound was made by Ian Kewley (French horn), Mike Delaney (drums), Ez Olbinson (bass), Les Jones (electric guitar) and Norman Findlay (keyboards). The experimental character of their music is due to their history as all having fulfilled at music university in Manchester. They added the experienced John Prichard (flügelhorn) towards the line-up once they found its way to London in the summertime of 1969. Their debut record was released following the music group had already produced many musical progressions, and therefore these were struggling to promote it with any feeling of purpose. An individual “Venus”, that was released in 1970 on Parlophone Information, represented their transformation of design. The music group shortly disintegrated with Kewley heading to play with Strider, Limey and Streetband, before dealing with Paul Youthful in the Q-Tip.
