From: Toronto, ON, Canada

Nucleus formed in the early months of 1966 as a follow-on to the Lords Of London. Members were Gregory Fitzpatrick (bass, keyboards, vocals), Hughie Leggat (bass, vocals), John Richardson (guitar), Bob Horne (keyboards), and Danny Taylor (drums). Nucleus eventually secured a contract with the Chicago-based label, Mainstream, where they  recorded their only album. The self-titled album features all original songs written by Fitzpatrick. The six songs range from some psychedelic influences to jazz-prog sounds, as exemplified on the albums closing song, the eleven minute “Communication.” While the album does not stand out as one of the all-time greats, Nucleus is a solid piece of music. The band would evolve into A Foot In Cold Water.
