EGG (superb prog canterbury rock)!!!!

Spero che conosciate gia gli egg e se non fosse cos' che aspettate????sono un mix di prog e canterbury sound...certamente possono essere difficili da ascoltare ma con un po' di tentativi...superlativo il versante canterbury...siamo ai livelli dei caravan!a voi!

The Polite Force (1972)

Egg - The Polite Force

Uttelry BRILLIANT stuff! I mean, how could you not love the bizarre and HILARIOUS "Contrasong" with it's off-kilter brass arrangement, alternating 5/8 and 9/8 time signatures and bassist Mont Campbell's deadpan vocal delivery. "A Visit to Newport Hospital" recounts the band's experiences in its "Uriel" incarnation with more deadpan vocals and funny lyrics. Egg however were no jokesters when it came to their musicianship. Dave Stewart was really coming into his own with a distinct keyboard style (chiefly Hammond organ), Mont Campbell was deveoping serious compositional ability along with his solid bass work (and playing some French Horn to boot) and Clive Brooks propelling things along in rock solid fashion. "Long Piece #3" shows them developing their compostional chops in very interesting ways, while "Boilk" shows their bravery (and/or sheer craziness) in producing a piece of what might be termed "Musique Concrete" (or organized sound), throwing in everything and LITERALLY including the kitchen sink at the beginning. Definitely not for fans of easy, safe inoffensive pop, but for those who love their experimentalism with LOTS of droll British humor, it's a treasure trove, DIG IN!!!

P.S. The Fantasy album is amazing, the female vocalist reminds me of Jinx from Coven and musically it is incredible too...

They are one of the best british rock bands of the early 70's. And this is surely one of the best blogs i've been visiting for about two years or so. A million thank you on the way. Grazie tantissimo.
