Still experimental and artsy

Even before their success, the band split up briefly, but in the 1970s they succeeded with the second album 'The Least We Can Do Is Wave At Eachother', which attracts many fans, especially in Italy. There is no real commercialism, but that doesn't stop Van der Graaf Generator from releasing 13 albums and touring all over the world.

In 2020, the line-up consists of Hugh Banton and Guy Evans, in addition to Hammill, who also visited Amsterdam many times with his solo project. Both artists joined the band in 1968.
