Originally a side project developed by Van der Graaf Generator players Guy Evans, Hugh Banton, Nic Potter, and David Jackson while bandleader Peter Hammill was off making solo records after the release of Pawn Hearts, and originally marketed prominently via the Van der Graaf connection, the Long Hello became the umbrella name for a series of instrumental records centered around virtuoso drummer Evans (with bassist Potter on Vol. 2). As of Vol. 3, most of the connections with Van der Graaf Generator had been left behind.
