SFF is one of my all-time favourite German prog acts, and what's more, I find their stunning debut album "Symphonic Pictures" as a definitive apex in prog history - let alone, in the German prog scene. Two members of this trio, Schicke and Fröhling, came right out from the ranks of Spektakel, joining forces in order to pursue a more focused kind of music, with one foot in the British symphonic melodic trend and the other in the cosmic realms of krautrock in a most stylish fashion. Once they casually met a young classically trained keyboardist named Gerhard Fürhs, the band was completed right after a common artistic goal had been properly agreed. SFF's musical vein is parallel to those of Pulsar, as well as compatriots Novalis and TD (circa "Ricochet" and "Stratosfear"), which means that 73-75 Pink Floyd's eerie psychedelia was a major point of reference for the first musical ideas created by SFF.
