In the early 80s , I listened with my bandmates in our group “Pinocchios Tuta” to several albums with The Enid. Their style was very progressive and symphonic (and still is). The musicians in our band “Pinocchios Tuta” was myself on bass, Dag Mattsson on guitar, Martin Klaman on guitar, Björn Axelsson on keyboards and Lasse Lundbom on drums. We did several concerts, including at the fine jazz club Fashing in Stockholm and direct broadcast on the Swedish national radio. Below is an example of a live concert with “Pinocchios Tuta” from April 9, 1985. The name of the song is ” North Shine Carnival” composed by Björn Axelsson , hope you enjoy it:
