The band went through radical style changes, but they are best known for the hard, progressive rock sound of their hit singles, "Tomorrow Night" (UK No. 11) and "The Devil's Answer" (UK No. 4), both in 1971.

The Independent newspaper said of Sean, “It is MacGloin’s charisma, energy and musicianship that dazzle. His personality is capable of filling a venue of any size.”

The Far Meadow

 

The Far Meadow is a five-piece symphonic progressive rock band from London.

With the recent addition of Marguerita Alexandrou's distinctive vocals, the band forges an impressive array of musical textures provided by Eliot Minn's omnipresent keyboards and Denis Warren's virtuosic guitar work, underpinned by Paul Bringloe's inventive drumming and Keith Buckman's melodic bass.

The band has built on the legacy of Minn and Bringloe's former incarnation, Blind Panic, including songs such as 'Mud' and the epic 'Travelogue' in their current repertoire, harkening back to the mid nineties, and TFM's first release Where Joys Abound (2012), which featured the performing and writing talents of Nok on vocals, Paul Mallatratt on bass and Jon Barry on guitar.

TFM are currently developing new material which will be introduced during the coming months prior to the next recording project.
