Wobbler: The group was formed in 1999 in Hønefoss. Influenced by bands such as Gentle Giant, King Crimson, Genesis, Premiata Forneria Marconi, Museo Rosenbach, Anekdoten and Änglagård, the group released two demo recordings on the Internet in 2003, which were well received in the international progressive rock scene. Wobbler’s compositions and sound are exceedingly clearly based on the classic progressive rock bands of the 1970s. Their musical style can thus be described as retroprog. use of original equipment from the 1970s, including Rickenbacker bass, Mellotron, Hammond organ, Hohner Clavinet, Fender Rhodes, Moog synthesizer and ARP Solina String Ensemble. use of original equipment from the 1970s, including Rickenbacker bass, Mellotron, Hammond organ, Hohner Clavinet, Fender Rhodes, Moog synthesizer and ARP Solina String Ensemble.

White Willow: After two years of recording, the debut album was released in 1995 by the band, which at the time consisted of Sara Trondal, Eldrid Johansen, Jan Tariq Rahman, Audun Kjus, Tirill Mohn, Alexander Engebretsen and an unnamed drummer, in addition to founder Holm‐Lupo. The melancholic retro‐prog of Ignis Fatuus was heavily influenced by folk. For the second album, which followed in 1998, the lineup was changed. Only Holm‐Lupo and Rahman remained in the band, which was completed by Sylvia Erichsen, Frode Lia and Mattias Olsson (Änglagård).
