      Cannabis India was founded in 1971 by Oliver Petry (organ, vocals), Dirk Fleck (bass) and Rüdiger Braune (drums), all of them former members of the cover band The Futures.  In next to no time they managed to come up with a repertoire suitable for gigs, consisting of exclusively own compositions in the style of classical-rock. Playing like a lost basement recording of ELP circa 1971, this high-energy power trio pumped out shameless ersatz classical rock and recorded one brief set in 1973 at Germany's Sudwestfunk radio facilities, preserved and finally released in 2009 on Long Hair. Cannabis India was loosely part of Dusseldorf's Wuppertal scene and was led by child piano prodigy (and Keith Emerson devotee) Oliver Petry, backed by the fierce performance of drummer Rudiger Braune and noted bassist Dirk Fleck.
   The band had a brief career but developed a reputation locally as a strong live act, and that immediacy comes pouring through on "SWF Session 1973", an all-instrumental sample of four cuts including a version of Beethoven's 9th.
