    Very underrated blues prog rock. They were very heavy though.



    Thanks to Love In The Rain and Beat Club for introducing me into EBB.

    Well the debut was very heavy anyway. They progressively got less and less heavy abandoning the Captain Beefheart like vocals etc ..over the years but I still like alot of their not so heavy albums.

    They were a cool band. Lots of great music.

    Wasa Wasa is thier definitve album IMO. Slab and sick. Acidic. Craziness.

    Nipped up to York with Sweaty yesterday to see Edgar do a solo acoustic night, I enjoyed the gig and as Sweat said the approach and material reminded us a little of Roy Harper at times. He played "The Duchess" venue to a small crowd of about 40, the sound was great. Yeah good night all in all.
