Final Sunset [BE] Broken Brains - 2. Sometimes it's heavy. Sometimes it's jazzy. Rarely is it repetitive. Barely any of the compositions feature common time. You'll just have to listen. The sound quality is better than expected and the band has an incredible live power.

This version makes the studio version seem stale. The compositions are incredible. Ennegram is a masterpiece. Try to figure out the opening time signature, I'm still not sure if I know what it is. The ensuing Contrasong, with its dry, bone-hard brass arrangement, chomps on its own tail in a tight little maze of time signatures — a principle taken to its staggering conclusion on the minute Long Piece No 3, an absolute triumph of towering motifs, which begins with all three members playing independent rhythmic cycles simultaneously.

Egg quite rightly intuited that for something to be definitively psychedelic, it had to surrender its moorings completely and give itself over to happenstance. Premium dudes. The sting in the tail was that Decca initially took fright. It was really damaging, both to our morale and our prospects. How many did your first album sell?

There was a long delay before we got there. Egg, however, had already run out of road. Rock music was firmly back in the hands of art school dropouts instead of proper musicians. Our day in the sun had been a very short one. That was mainly written by Mont. Tant pis.

The exaltation which greeted the release of the posthumous compilation The Metronomical Society in proved that love for Egg ran deeper and hotter than anyone suspected.

Rewardingly, Stewart and Gaskin are working on a new album and a tour this spring, as we speak. Not that I regard any of my work as particularly worth preserving, but I find it embarrassing listening to the stuff on the first two Egg albums — apart from the rather satisfying Mellotron abuse on the first album, that is. Stewart, however, is unequivocal.

It was a time when you could do that kind of stuff and still be sort of mainstream with it. There was a feeling of unity, and everyone wanted everyone else to do well creatively.

Experimentation was the order of the day.

    "The Metronomical Society" is a compilation of Egg's previously unreleased radio and live recordings. This, ladies and gentlemen is the top shelf of progressive rock. Very difficult music, however still stays qualified as progressive rock rather than RIO or Avant-Rock/5.

    After releasing two highly original albums -- their self-titled debut and The Polite Force-- the Egg cracked in , and the trio went their separate ways. In , however, Dave Stewart, Mont Campbell and Clive Brooks reunited and returned to the studio. There they were joined by members of Henry Cow and old friend Steve Hillage, resulting in the The Civil Surface album.
