The history of the group began in 1969 when members of the dance band working on the south coast, Colin Hodgkinson (bass) and Ron Esper (saxophone), tried to make their first joint recording. Later, both moved to London, where he went: first settled by Alexis Korner, and the second engaged sessional affairs. Colin and Ron met again in Yorkshire, where he appeared in the home team "Redcars Starlight Club". In 1971, the guys found a suitable drummer Tony Hicks in the face, and formed the trio started to work under the guise of "Back Door". For the purpose of the contract hold of the ensemble has prepared some demos, but major label and did not want to hear anything about a new team where no guitarist, much less a singer.
Everywhere the band received a standard reply: "no singer, no contract". However, waivers were unfounded because Hodgkinson so skillful with basuhoy that turned her into a true high-end tools. Finally the guys from the "back door" decided on their own to record an album and has funded a rapid-fire session host one of Yorkshire pubs where live bands every week.
Imprinted on the record collection of short intense jams, which blended elements of jazz, funk, soul, blues and hard rock, aroused keen interest among the public. Although the circulation of the disc was quite small (1,000 copies), a copy went to the headquarters of "NME", and the magazine published an admiring review. After it rained, and other rave reviews, and in the wake of the growth of its popularity "Back Door" have been invited to open the concert Chick Corea's "Return To Forever". At this stage, the majors changed their minds about the musicians, they were given an early failure, and between them flared up the battle for the deal with Yorkshire trio. The winner was the firm "Warner Bros", which is on the move reissued debut LP much larger circulation.
In 1973, the team went to America, where he recorded the album "8th Street Nites". Produced by Felix Pappalardi plate ("Cream"), and on several tracks Hodgkinson tried his hand as a singer. The work turned out even more interesting, and left the best impression blues covers of Robert Johnson and Leadbelly.
Output drive accompanied by a number of stages in which companions "Back Door" were "ELP", Alexis Korner and "J. Geils Band". Later in the composition appeared keyboardist Dave McRae and at regular sessions also noted vocalist Peter Torap guitarist Bernie Holland and arranger Michael Gibbs. In "Another Fine Mess" artist to experiment a bit with electronics, although still remained true to its roots of jazz-rock. McRae soon disappeared somewhere, with him gone, and Hicks, as Colin and Ron wanted to find a drummer to play hard. In 1976, for the position of drummer Adrian Tilbrook they took, with the participation of which the disc was recorded "Activate".
However, the album, produced by Carl Palmer ("ELP"), proved to be the swan song for the team, and soon the activity of "Back Door" came to naught. Ryuniony original composition occurred twice - in 1986, when the British took a short tour, and in 2003 when the album came out "Askin The Way", composed of six reworkings of old things and thirteen new rooms.
August 13, 2006 by Tony Hicks died, and in 2007 collected Hodgkinson similar "back door" Trio "Colin Hodgkinson Group".
