Klaatu

Toronto, Ontario

Klaatu was a rock group formed in Toronto in 1973 by the duo of John Woloschuk and Dee Long. They named themselves after the extraterrestrial Klaatu portrayed by Michael Rennie in the film The Day the Earth Stood Still. After recording two singles, drummer Terry Draper was added to the line-up; this trio would comprise Klaatu throughout the rest of the band's career.  Klaatu's combination of pop, progressive rock, art/symphonic rock, and other genres has often been compared to the Beatles, and sometimes to the guitar-rock of Queen, and the electronic music of Wendy Carlos.  British music magazine Shindig! praised the band's ability to combine up-beat pop music with complex progressive rock, forming an "otherworldly brand of progressive pop".Wikipedia
