Biography

An overlooked classical rock trio that had both skill and sound of Emerson, Lake, and Palmer minus the bombast or success, Egg — made up of organist Dave Stewart (not really the one within the Eurythmics), bassist/vocalist Mont Campbell, and Clive Brooks — formed in July, 1968 through the ashes of Uriel/Arzachel after their guitarist, Steve Hillage still left to review philosophy in the University of Kent. The music group never managed to get on a significant size, as their music was as well grandiose and demanding to garner a mainstream viewers. It’s a pity, because Campbell got a powerful group of vocal cords, as well as the group WAS with the capacity of composing shorter, finely crafted melodies. An early on single “Seven Is really a Jolly Great Period” b/w “WE ALL HAVE BEEN Princes” received moderate airplay for the BBC’s venerable John Peel off Display. The group after that proceeded to record two albums, Egg as well as the Polite Push, both dominated by Stewart’s body organ, then split up after Stewart became a member of the Canterbury all-star group Hatfield as well as the North. The Civil Surface area is really a reunion recording that arrived in past due ’74. Stewart presently works with vocalist Barbara Gaskin on regular new age tasks. Campbell had a short spell using the 1st version of Country wide Wellness, and Brooks drummed for 14 days using the Groundhogs, but their current actions are unknown.
