French psychedelic folk group created during a musicians' meeting organized by Emmanuel Booz in summer of 1971, which included brothers Alain Labacci and Bernard Labacci (on guitar and drums respectively), bassist Jean-Pierre Pouret and Zoo's founding member Michel Bonnecarrère, also on guitars and vocals.
They rehearsed in Michel's house in the town of Flagy (Seine-et-Marne). Eventually, Barclay released their debut LP in late 71'. After a 2nd effort in 1973, it seems they disbanded.
Ophiucus' name is derived from a large constellation located around the celestial equator formerly known as Serpentarius.
