Arzachel (Uriel)

The band Arzachel was a pseudonym of the band Uriel, a short-lived English psychedelic rock band during the 1960s, composed of Steve Hillage (guitar/vocals), Dave Stewart (organ), Clive Brooks (drums) and Mont Campbell (bass/vocals). Uriel were formed in London, in 1967. They initially played covers of Cream, Jimi Hendrix, John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and The Nice. After Hillage left in 1968 to attend university, the remaining trio began playing original material written by Campbell and Stewart and  in early 1969 changed their name to Egg, the Canterbury scene progressive rock band. Read more here.
