ROCOCO was one of Londonís finest Prog Rock bands of the 70ís and were formed by a young musician ROY SHIPSTON who had been a trainee journalist at MELODY MAKER.

In 1972 he quit journalism and formed late 72 early 73 Rococo and immediately obtained a singles licensing deal with the now infamous DERAM Records who released 'Ultrastar' as the a side and 'Wildfire' as the B side which ironically became their most popular live track and for many years DJ Alan Freeman used the riff on his radio show.

The band broke attendance records headlining at The Marquee Club as well as playing support on UK tours to TEN YEARS AFTER, THIN LIZZY, SNAFU and CLIMAX BLUES BAND

The band also included as itís bass player John 'Rhino' Edwards who would later go onto fame and fortune as a member of STATUS QUO

All the tracks on this album were recorded during the 70ís and highlight how exciting and original prog rockers the band were.
