An under-appreciated British guitar band founded in the early 70s by singer/guitarist Bill Nelson. One of many progressive rock bands of the era to be heavily influenced by science fiction, Be Bop Deluxe can be compared to King Crimson, early Genesis and 10cc. Their biggest hit was the single Ships In The Night. Bop Deluxe went through many incarnations, and eventually broke up in 1978 when Nelson split off to pursue a solo career.


Most of their albums are available for import from CDNOW. The Air Age Anthology is an excellent collection of their work.
