Bonfire - Bonfire Goes Bananas. 1975 Netherlands

The comparisons to Focus and Finch are hard to avoid here. The melodic nature of the former is met with the driving guitar fronted fierceness of the latter. I would also throw in the playfulness of another Dutch group - that of Pantheon (of Orion fame), which Bonfire perhaps shares more in common with (minus the sax of course). Worth noting all 3 bands above are all instrumental as is Bonfire. In addition, some of the humor-in-rock recalls the Flemish band Kandahar as well as the Danish group Dr. Dopo Jam.
