This trio had previously been in a flower power outfit with Steve Hillage called Uriel, which ended in 1968 when Hillage went off to college. Egg''s first incarnation lasted from July 1968 to May 1972 and the two albums they recorded were in the progressive mould. They were characterised by rather jazzy, esoteric music, which took extremely difficult time sequences as its basis. They also contributed two tracks, Song Of McGillicude The Pussillanimous and I Will Be Absorbed to The Nova Sampler in 1970. Dave Stewart''s next outfit was Khan with Steve Hillage formed when he returned to London from college. He was later in Hatfield and The North, National Health and Bruford before ''going commercial'' with a series of covers with Barbara Gaskin (ex-Spirogyra and Hatfield and The North). Clive Brooks went on to join Groundhogs and Mont Campbell was later in National Health. Egg did reform briefly in 1974 to cut the third album.
