Biography

There are several artists using this name:
1) The Spanish indie pop band (1991 - 1993)
2) The British rock band (1967 - 1973)
3) The disco group signed to New York Salsoul Records (1970’s-1980’s)
4) The Brazilian hardcore band (1990’s)

1) Family was a Spanish indie band active 1991-1993 formed by Javier Aramburu and Iñaki Gametxogoikoetxea. They released just one album in 1993 titled Un soplo en el corazón,” a tribute to the film by Louis Malle. In 2003 Spanish magazine Rockdelux released an album with the same songs played by other Spanish bands to celebrate 10 years from probably one of the best Spanish albums of 90’s.

2) Family was British rock band from Leicester, England, active 1967-1973. Their music has been described as Blues-Rock, Prog-Rock, Art Rock and Psychedelia.

Family’s debut single “Scene Through The Eye Of A Lens/Gypsy Woman” was released by Liberty in the autumn of 1967. While the single received praise from critics, it received very little airplay, due to its rather complex, uncommercial nature. Family’s debut album, Music in a Doll’s House, was released in July 1968 and it was produced by Traffic’s Dave Mason and Jimmy Miller on a 4-track machine at Olympic Studios, London. The band’s line-up: Roger Chapman (vocals/harmonica/tenor saxophone), Charlie Whitney (guitars/vocals), Rick Grech (bass/violin/cello/vocals), Rob Townsend (drums/percussion), and Jim King saxophone/flute/harmonica/vocals). Bandleader Tubby Hayes and his brass section played on “Old Songs New Songs”.
