The ISB are on of my favourite bands!
If you want to get into them I recommend listening to the albums in turn as they came out, as they developed with each album. Robin Williamson's songs tend to be more intellectual flights of fancy, whilst Mike Heron's are slightly more poppy - certainly easier to pick up on the guitar!
It's worth giving them a go because, as someone says in the doc, they do take you on a journey. And despite what might initially look as plain weirdness they actually had a lot of rather sensible yet wonderful things to say!
There's a great little documentary here on them that serves as a good introduction:
This Mike Heron song is taken from the fourth album (my favourite):
totally into these guys...
