The Syn: Previously Unseen Pictures

The Syn were a London based combo who recorded two classic psychedelic singles for Deram, Created by Clive (b/w Grounded) and Flowerman (b/w 14 Hour Technicolour Dream) in 1967 before eventually petering out..  Besides vocalist Steve Nardelli, keyboard player Andrew Jackman and drummer Gunnar Jökull Hákonarson the recording line up was completed by Chris Squire and Peter Banks who after The Syn's demise joined Mabel Greer's Toyshop, a band that soon enough turned into Yes.
A good friend recently unearthed some never before published photos of the Syn from his archives. He has one promo photo and five contact sheets of other photos and has generously allowed this blog to publish a sampling of this treasure trove. So what now follows is a dozen rare photos for your obvious delight. (The colour picture above is not part of this collection but I just could not resist posting it anyway.) Okeedokes so feast your eyes on this lot chums.


With thanks to Minus Zero Records for this excellent exclusive glimpse of these rare artifacts.
