Initially active in the first half of the 1990s, CROW formed in Whitstable by members of previous outfit DOOR MARKED SUMMER. Their rousing brand of Tribal Prog Rock was tempered with a Hardcore/Crust-Punk edge, and evolved to incorporate influences from Dub, Trance and Funk.
The band amassed a large following, regularly playing the Leas Cliff Hall both as headline and as support to bands such as GIRLSCHOOL and HERE AND NOW (ex-GONG). CROW gigs became legendary for the collaborations with the Fire-Jugglers of the Kent Circus School who provided stirring visual accompaniment to the hypnotic Tribal rhythms.
Two cassette albums were recorded, "Medicine Wheel" (1992) and "The Tides Of Apsaroke" (1993). A CD was planned, but never recorded.
Following the band's split in 1995, ex-members played in NINE, CHROMOSOME and TEMPLEMER.
CROW reformed in tribute to their former promoter Brian Steele who sadly passed away in late 2007. They are currently writing new material, with the aim of recording soon...
