FORMED: 1971, Birmingham, England DISBANDED: 1988
Formed in 1971 from the ashes of the Move, the Electric Light Orchestra drew heavily from the "I Am the Walrus"-period Beatles. This being reflected in their debut album, No Answer. Of particular note is the track "10538 Overture."

Move expatriates Roy Wood, Jeff Lynne, and Bev Bevan formed the initial nucleus of ELO, but multi-instrumentalist Wood split after No Answer to form the group Wizzard.

Their second release, ELO II, retained some of the off-key crunch of the debut, but it is clearly a transition to what became a very slick, highly orchestrated pop-hit factory. Between 1975 and 1981, ELO managed 17 Top 40 hits, among which were "Evil Woman" (#10), "Telephone Line" (#7), "Don't Bring Me Down" (#4), "Hold on Tight" (#10), "Shine a Little Love" (#8) and "Can't Get It Out of My Head" (#9). ELO also scored a #24 hit with "Do Ya," which was the Move's only stateside chart hit.
