Van der Graaf Generator are an English progressive rock band, formed in 1967 in Manchester by singer-songwriters Peter Hammill and Chris Judge Smith and the first act signed by Charisma Records. They did not experience much commercial success in the UK, but became popular in Italy during the 1970s. In 2005 the band reformed, and are still musically active with a line-up of Hammill, organist Hugh Banton and drummer Guy Evans.

Godbluff is a music studio album recording by VAN DER GRAAF GENERATOR (Eclectic Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1975 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. In "Godbluff" he adds his incredible voice to the most impressive VDGG music, resulting an excellent album. Even when VDGG wasn't a "gothic-prog" band (the best definition could be a "vocals driven band"), "Godbluff" is their first realisation from the second generation, this one darker and even violent and, IMHO, the best in VDGG history.

Vital: Van der Graaf Live is the first live album by English progressive rock band Van der Graaf Generator. It was recorded 16 January 1978 at the Marquee Club in London and was released in July, one month after the band's 1978 break-up

Van der Graaf Generator (англ. Генератор Ван де Граафа) - английская прогрессив-рок группа 70-х годов. Имя группы происходит от названия электростатического генератора Ван де Граафа (Van de Graaff generator). Небольшая орфографическая ошибка в написании скорее всего случайна. Группа была сформирована в 1967 году в период учёбы ее членов в Манчестерском университете (Manchester University).

When it came time for reuniting the members of Van Der Graaf, this change in direction had its effect on the band's post-1975 music. While the musical structures continued to be complex and dense, there seemed to be far less accent on the demonstration of musical skill than had formerly been the case. Indeed, the album opened with daring quietness, with David Jackson's flute echoing across the stereo space, joined by Hammill's voice as he whispered the opening lines.
