Egg was a English progressive band formed in London in 1969. The trio of band members Dave Stewart (not the guy from the Eurythmics) on keyboards, Mont Campbell on bass and vocals and Clive Brooks on drums were 3/4 of the band Uriel, which had Steve Hillage on guitar. Upon Hillage's departure they renamed the band Egg and kept it as a trio with no guitarist. The band released their self titled debut album in 1970, followed by The Polite Force in 1971. They split up in 1972 while having enough material for a third release but no record label, eventually in 1974 that third and farewell album The Civil Surface was released. In 1985 the compilation album Seven Is A Jolly Good Time was released. Two archival live material has also seen release The Metronomical Society (2007) and BBC Sessions And More 1968-72 (2015).
Drummer Clive Brooks died last May.
