Nic Potter Biography

Nic Potter was probably best known for his work with the British rock band Van Der Graaf Generator. Initially, however, Nic played in a band called The Misunderstood along with Guy Evans who would also join Van Der Graaf Generator. Nic joined Van Der Graaf Generator in 1969 and recorded the album The Least We Can Do Is Wave To Each Other as well as part of the next album H To He, Who Am The Only One, before leaving.

He was to return to the band later in the seventies, however, and played on two more albums from the band, the studio album The Quiet Zone/The Pleasure Dome and the live album Vital, before the band split.

In between times and of course beyond his final stint with Van Der Graaf Generator, Nic Potter has had an extensive solo career recording a number of solo albums, and for a short period in the early to mid-eighties was a member of Peter Hammill's band The K Group. Sadly Nic died in early 2013. Gonzo supremo Rob Ayling said:

''Nic Potter was the second artist to sign to Voiceprint way back in 1990. His album The Blue Zone was the third release on the Voiceprint imprint and came out at the same time as Daevid Allen's first releases on Voiceprint on the 30th November 1990. It is so sad to hear of Nic's passing as I have had the pleasure of knowing Nic for over 20 years. Nic was a very sensitive and gentle soul. His music and art was his life and he will be sorely missed.''
