Peter "Pete" Ronald Brown (25 December 1940) is an English performance poet, lyricist and singer. Best known for his collaborations with Cream and Jack Bruce, Brown also formed the bands Pete Brown & His Battered Ornaments and Pete Brown & Piblokto!, and worked with Graham Bond and Phil Ryan. Brown also writes film scripts and formed a film production company. Comedian and actor Marty Feldman was Brown's cousin.

'Piblokto!' was formed after Brown's dismissal from the Battered Ornaments, and was active between 1969 and 1971. The original Piblokto! members were; Brown on vocals, Laurie Allan on drums, Jim Mullen on guitar, Roger Bunn on bass and Dave Thompson on organ. Most of their releases were for Harvest Records.

Allen left to join The Battered Ornaments and was replaced by their drummer Rob Tait. They released their first single "Living Life Backwards"/"High Flying Electric Bird", (the A-side later covered by Jeff Beck), followed by the album Things May Come and Things May Go but the Art School Dance Goes on Forever (1970). Bunn was replaced by Steve Glover for their second single, "Can't Get Off The Planet"/"Broken Magic" and the LP, Thousands on a Raft (1970).

Mullen, Thompson and Tait left, so Brown and Glover were joined by Phil Ryan on keyboards, John 'Pugwash' Weathers on drums (both formerly from The Eyes of Blue) and Brian Breeze on guitar. This line-up only recorded one single, "Flying Hero Sandwich"/"My Last Band". Weathers and Breeze both departed, to be replaced by guitarist Taff Williams (also formerly in The Eyes of Blue) and drummer Ed Spevock, before finally disbanding in Autumn 1971. « hide
