  The Enid - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The Enid is a British rock band founded in 1975 by Robert John Godfrey, Stephen Stewart and Francis Lickerish.
After some unpleasant experiences with major record labels, which initially welcomed the band with open arms and then dumped them after failing to promote their records, the band relied on self-publishing and promotion, which was helped by the fact that their settlement with one of the labels included some recording equipment.
Robert John Godfrey has said that he does not regard The Enid as a progressive rock band and would rather not be associated with the term, but that has not stopped prog rock fanzines and websites from promoting the band.

 Guardian Unlimited | Special reports | Golly! Blyton 'is not guilty of race slurs'
A new academic appraisal of the work of Enid Blyton claims that golliwogs may have been innocent victims of well-intentioned political correctness when they were banished from revised editions of the Noddy books more than 20 years ago.
The revisionist study, based on a close reading of the texts, argues that the characters were not the villains they were assumed to be by critics writing in the 60s and 70s.
Once the golliwog was given a new negative meaning in the public mind, its days had to be numbered and the Noddy stories had to be revised.
