Refugee, bravísimo rock progresivo de los años 70
Refugee was a progressive rock group formed by former The Nice members, bassist Lee Jackson and drummer Brian Davison, with keyboardist Patrick Moraz.
After The Nice, Jackson had formed Jackson Heights, with Davison later becoming involved in the project too. Jackson then invited Moraz to form a new trio, Refugee, with him and Davison.[dead link]
Refugee released one album on Charisma Records. The music was composed by Moraz with lyrics from Jackson. An archival live album recorded at Newcastle City Hall (a soundboard recording, taken from Davison's private collection) was released in 2007.
Without a deal for a second album and with tensions in the band, Moraz accepted an offer to join Yes in 1974 and, after a final few shows, Refugee split up.
