Parrish & Gurvitz

Parrish & Gurvitz were an English rock duo comprised of bassist-singer Paul Gurvitz and guitarist-singer Brian Parrish. They released one album on Regal Zonophone in 1971 and recorded a second that later appeared on an archival two-disc set.

The pair recorded earlier in The Knack, a mod-beat combo that issued multiple mid-’60s singles. They reunited as a duo after Paul’s stint with Gun, a power-trio formed with his brother Adrian Gurvitz.

Parrish & Gurvitz cut their self-titled album with drummer Mike Kellie of a then-disbanded Spooky Tooth. The project ended when Paul and Adrian reteamed in Three Man Army. Parrish surfaced in Badger with ex-Yes keyboardist Tony Kaye.

Members: Paul Gurvitz (vocals, bass, guitar), Brian Parrish (vocals, guitar), Mike Kellie (drums)

The partnership began in 1963 when Parrish frequented a hair salon run by Paul Gurvitz.
