Formed in 1970, Centipede was a jazz/progressive rock/Canterbury sound big band with more than 50 members, organized and led by the British free jazz pianist [a=Keith Tippett], that brought together much of a generation of young British jazz and rock musicians, e.g. from the bands [a=Soft Machine], [a=King Crimson], [a=Nucleus (3)] and [a=Blossom Toes].

As well as performing some concerts (limited economically by the size of the band), they recorded one double-album, "Septober Energy" (produced by [a=Robert Fripp]), released in 1971.
