Episode Six were formed from two Harrow County School bands, The Lightnings and The Madisons. When their first singer Andy Ross left, Ian Gillan joined and the band went professional in April 1965 with their first single. They worked and recorded through until 1969 when Gillan and Glover were offered jobs with Deep Purple.

Purple Records have issued a double CD "Cornflakes & Crazyfoam" of rare Episode Six material covering their entire career. There is also an illustrated discography with the collection.
