The band began as a trio from Northern Ireland called Method, changing their name to 'Andwellas Dream' after moving to London in 1968. After the first LP they shortened their name to Andwella.

'Love And Poetry' (on [L=CBS]) was a highly-rated psychedelic album. The highlight of this album is surely the opening track, 'The Days Grew Longer For Love', which like most tracks is slow and melodic but with killer guitar leads. Three singles were released from that album.

In 1970 they switched to [L=Reflection Records (3)] for whom they recorded two albums, neither of which matched their first effort and two 45's. The World's End album was also comprised entirely of [A=David Lewis (5)] compositions, but most of the tracks were more mainstream with string orchestrations, brass arrangements and background vocals.

Lewis was a multi-instrumentalist and an acclaimed songwriter who also recorded a privately-pressed album in 1970. He also made further solo albums. [A=Jack McCulloch] had previously played with [A=One In A Million], [A=Thunderclap Newman] and with [A=Dave Struthers] had been with short-lived group 'McCullochs, Struthers and Patterson' (the other members being [A=Jimmy McCulloch] and [A=Robbie Patterson (2)]). After Andwella he went on to a group called 'White Line', with his brother Jimmy. [A=Dave McDougall (2)] went on to work with [A=John "Speedy" Keen] (ex-Thunderclap Newman), while [A=Nigel Smith (4)] joined Khan.
