Alchemeon, named by Jim, began in November 2008 and lasted until May 2009. The name comes from a combination of ‘alchemy’ and an anagram of ‘chameleon’, which is a play by Pok that has been performed by a variety of casts on numerous stages over several years.

Alchemeon played wonderful music that could perhaps best be described as psychedelic rock, progressive rock, space rock, art rock, alternative rock or some combination of all of these.

The band Alchemeon showed great talent and potential and sadly it ended all too soon, with only a few snatches of recordings of them in rehearsal remaining.

Alchemeon featured the talents of Pok on guitar and voice, Jim on his vast banks of keys and voice, the amazing Iggy on drums and George on bass. Their set consisted of several songs from Spacegoats and Laughing Sun as well as some new material.

All four members of the quartet were renowned and celebrated virtuoso in their own right. Alchemeon was therefore something of a supergroup.
