1. United Kingdom

Of the many obscure, trench-coated progressive rock groups that germinated in the garages, sheds and studios of England in the early ’70s, Stallion are now recognised as one of the great lost bands of the first progressive era. Hailed critically - by those lucky enough to see them perform - Stallion regularly appeared on the same bill as many of their more well known contemporaries, including, Curved Air , Stackridge, Rare Bird, Stray, Edgar Broughton Band and Traffic.

As well as appearing as support act for T. Rex and Motörhead and becoming regulars on the London club circuit, Stallion became London’s much loved Saturday night favourites, with their exciting and dynamic live act earning them a record breaking headlining residency at the legendary Marquee Club in Soho’s Wardour Street.

Stallion were always the band who liked to break the rules and challenge the norm. Reacting to what they saw as the bland state of local music, drummer Steve Demetri, guitarist Tony Bridger and singer Tich Turner formed Stallion in 1972, aiming from the outset to put original compositions at the top of their agenda, performed with a professional and theatrical stage show that was very much in keeping with the progressive musical times.
