Long before the iconic 90s grunge band, there was a London-based duo who were the first group to be signed to Chris Blackwell's Island Records. Patrick Campbell-Lyons from Ireland and Alex Spyropoulos from Greece met in the height of London's swinging 60s and quickly hit it off creating the cult symphonic band Nirvana.
The name heavily influenced their music, characterized by spontaneity and a blend of psychedelia and Eastern philosophy. The duo's first album, The Story of Simon Simopath, was a science-fiction concept album and produced the hit single "Pentecost Hotel." Despite success in Europe, the band did not achieve significant sales in England or America. Their third album, Black Flower, was released with limited success under a different title, Dedicated to Markos III.
In 1996, Nirvana released a new album, Orange and Blue, featuring previously unrecorded material and reissued and expanded for the first time by Think Like A Key Music in 2023.
