UK were a super group of the first order who came together as a quarter just as the prog scene was drawing down.  The 4 members were well established in progressive rock by this time - John Wetton (Brian FerryKing CrimsonPhil Manzanera).  Eddie Jobson (Roxy Music, Frank Zappa), Bill Bruford (YesKing Crimson), & Allan Holdsworth (Gong, Soft Machine) and they released their self-titled debut album in 1978,

In 1978, the band returned as a trio. gone were Holzworth and Bruford and in was Terrie Bozzio (Frank Zappa) and UK released their second and final studio album of that era.

With the breakup of the band, Wetton went on to Asia, Bozzio formed Missing Persons, Jobson recorded and toured with Jethro Tull and Holsworth & Bruford teamed up for some Bruford solo CDs.

In 2013, the band 're-united' with original members Wetton and Jobson joined by Alex Machacek and Marco Minnemann for some live recordings.
