Formed in England in 1971, Formerly Fat Harry revolved around the talents of US expatriates Gary Peterson (vocals/guitar/keyboards), Phil Greenberg (vocals/guitar) and Bruce Barthol (bass, ex-Country Joe And The Fish). Saxophonist George Khan (formerly of Battered Ornaments) and Laurie Allen (drums) completed the featured line-up on Formerly Fat Harry, a pleasant country rock, good time music set which anticipated the ‘pub rock’ boom. Unfortunately, the band failed to make commercial headway and they split up when the core members returned to the USA. Allen subsequently worked with Gong, Lol Coxhill and Robert Wyatt. George Khan, also known as Nisar Ahmet Khan, played on several jazz rock features by Annette Peacock and Mike Westbrook before leading Mirage (1977).
