QANGO BIOGRAPHY (from Wikipedia)

"QANGO was a short-lived progressive rock band, a spin-off from Asia. In 1999, an attempt was made at a partial reunion of the progressive rock supergroup Asia involving John WETTON (bass, vocals), Carl PALMER (drums) and Geoff DOWNES (keys), with David KILMINSTER to be on guitar. However, Downes withdrew from plans, choosing to stick with John PAYNE in their Asia line-up. Wetton and Palmer instead formed Qango with Kilminster and John Young on keys (who had briefly replaced Downes in Asia in 1989). The band's live set was based on songs by Asia and Palmer's former band Emerson Lake and Palmer. The band did not attract the same commercial interest as an Asia reunion. Two shows were planned for November 1999, but were cancelled as Wetton required a wrist operation. Instead, the band played five UK dates in February 2000 (including a London show on 4 February when Keith Emerson jammed with the band) and six in April 2000. Subsequent touring plans and ideas to record a studio album were abandoned, with Wetton and Palmer soon returning to their solo activities. The band's second show (3 February 2000) was recorded for a live release, Live in the Hood, the band's only official output"
