Van Der Graaf Generator
-the name of the band comes from-
:also called a band generator, is an apparatus for generating high electrical direct voltages.
The generator was named after the American physicist Robert Van de Graaff, who developed band generators from 1929
.formed in the UK in 1967 by Peter Hammill, Chris Judge Smith and Nick Pearne (now deceased). After a period of activity during the 1970s, the band broke up (although not for the first time) in 1978, seemingly for good. The "classic" line-up of Hammill, Guy Evans, Hugh Banton and David Jackson, reformed the band again in 2004 and released the studio album "Present". Since September 2006 Van Der Graaf Generator has worked as a trio, without David Jackson.
