    Van der Graaf Generator, sometimes known by the shorter Van der Graaf, are a progressive rock band formed in Manchester, England. The bandachieved considerable success in Italy during the 1970s. In 2005 they embarked on a reunion, which continues to the present day.The signature Van der Graaf Generator sound in the 1970s was a combination of Peter Hammill's distinctive, dynamic voice and David Jackson'selectronically-treated saxophones, generally playing over thick chordal keyboard parts (such as Hammond organ and/or clavinet). The band'salbums tended to be darker in atmosphere than many of their prog-rock peers (a trait they shared with King Crimson, whose guitarist andleader Robert Fripp guested on two of their albums), and guitar solos were the exception rather than the rule.Hammill is the primary songwriter for the band, and the line between music written for his solo career and for the band is often blurred. « hide
