The Incredible String Band was a Scottish folk-rock group that originated in the psychedelic era of 1966, and formed an avant-garde contribution to the British music scene. Here photographed by Jack Robinson on December 3, 1968 and published by Vogue in the People Are Talking About … feature on February 15, 1969, are the lineup of Mike Heron and Robin Williamson, two “twenty-five-year-old, blowy haired, tatty Scotsmen, who write, sing, and play their own meandering songs, backed up by two girls, Christina 'Licorice' McKechnie and Rose Simpson.” “In worn velvets, beads, and puffs of incense, the group encamps on stage in a cluster of guitars, lute, mandolin, oud, sitar, dulcimer, harmonicas, and organ.” The ISB were in the lineup at Woodstock and at the time of this photograph, they had released their first four albums, including the hugely successful “The Hangman’s Beautiful Daughter.” The ISB would break-up in 1974.
