The roots of Cressida were sown in March 1968,when guitarist "Rock & Roll" John Heyworth answered an advertisement in Melody Maker,and later travelled to London to join The Dominators,a band whose situation he later described as "hopeless-until Angus Cullen applied for the lead singer spot".He and Heyworth hit it off immediately,and Heyworth was invited to stay at Cullen's family flat in Barkstone Gardens near Earl's Court.The pair settled down to some serious writing,eventually welcoming bassist Kevin McCarthy and drummer Iain Clark to the fold and now calling themselves Charge.

In 1969 they take the name"Cressida".
Cressida mostly played the university and college circuits,as well as London clubs such as the Speakeasy,Revolution,Blaises and the Marquee Club.The first LP was recorded at Wessex Studios with Byrne producing.It consisted of songs by either Cullen or Heyworth(who handled lead vocals on one),plus one contribution each by Jennings and Clark.
