String Driven Thing - 1968-72 - The Early Years

String Driven Thing were a 1970s folk-rock band from Scotland, led by husband and wife Chris Adams and Pauline Adams and featuring the electric violin of Graham Smith. String Driven Thing formed as a three part harmony folk band in 1967 with the Adamses and guitarist John Mannion and put out a self-titled album on the small independent Concord label (copies of which are collectable and difficult to find) although some way from their later Charisma label output which was much more folk-rock. The group moved from Scotland to London and Chris Adams decided to try and take the band away from its folk roots into the folk-rock genre where his song writing abilities, which often feature hard-bitten bitter observations capturing the harsher side of life, would be seen to better effect. He met up with classically-trained violinist Graham Smith and folk guitarist Colin Wilson, who moved to bass, but soon afterwards lost John Mannion who did not think the new direction suited him. This is the first album.
