    Edgar Broughton Band The Harvest Years 196 -1973 (2011 UK 4CD album set - Aswell as comprising digitally remastered versions of their first five albums ('Wasa Wasa' 'Sing Brother Sing' 'Edgar Broughton Band' 'Inside Out' and 'Oa') this collection also features the previously unreleased concert 'Live At Hyde Park London 18th July 1970'. It was the band's third appearance at the park on a bill featuring fellow Harvest luminaries Roy Harper Kevin Ayers and headlined by Pink Floyd. Their 45 minute set is faithfully reproduced in all its raw and raucous gly!).
    Most retrospectives of the late 1960s and early 1970s musical counterculture tend to focus on the gentler side the pastal underground that kept the spirit of folk Eden alive. What still remains unfashionably overlooked is the scungier reaction to the hippy idyll: those artists whose refusal to smoke the peace pipe was expressed in a rawer me desperate fm of heavy blues-aftermath rock. Cast as willing outsiders from the start the likes of Groundhogs Pink Fairies and Global Village Trucking Company were slated to play outside the fence slamming and jamming protests and gurning crudities from the back of a flatbed truck. Mudflecked descendants of Winstanley?s Diggers arriving in clapped-out vans to announce the wilting of flower power. Music from a paradise garden turned to mud. The most enduring of these were The Edgar Broughton Band a righteous Beefheart-loving brigade fmed by Broughton brothers Robert (aka ?Edgar?) and Steve with bassist Arthur Grant in mid-?60s Warwick. With in- again-out-again guitarist Vict Unitt the outfit delivered a pounding to the Tolkien-tranquilised hdes of UFO and Middle Earth taking up a strategic position in the Notting Hill scene in ?68 from where they were signed to Blackhill Enterprises and became an early addition to EMI?s ?alternative? label Harvest. This generation of the underground - which effectively lasted until the economic crises of the Heath administration only to dissipate into the nationwide commune scene and the rugged deal of outdo free festivals - fell into a curious blind spot in UK politics with general rage against the Man and the Machine but few specific issues to grapple with. How much me angry energy would?ve been generated had Britain stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the US in Vietnam* As this four-CD set - comprising five LPs plus an unreleased Hyde Park concert from 1970 - reveals EBB had rage (and humour) in spades. ?Death Of An Electric Citizen? from debut Wasa Wasa is a Beefheartian romp as is single ?Apache Drop Out? a curious mix of Safe As Milk boogie and pastiche Shadows. And in channelling their hate into ?Out Demons Out!? the ritual chant of the festival community taped at a ?live studio? concert at Abbey Road in December 1969 they found their vocation. Riffing off The Fugs? Pentagon-cleansing anthem ?Demons? is goof-off protest folk with a throbbing bluesy vein. Shtly after came the single ?Up Yours!? a V-sign to the political process that today?s student dissenters would be wise to adopt. Sing Brother Sing (1970) full of ?songs about child molesters nymphos and the imminent apocalypse? accding to one review and The Edgar Broughton Band (1971) were the group?s zenith. Concerts reveal EBB in their element but surprise subtleties such as the string arrangements and stereo guitar effects on ?F Dr Spock? and David Bedfds?s chestrations on ?Evening Over Rooftops? show the group - now back with Unitt - to be me inventive in the studio than their scuzzy image might suggest. ?... Rooftops? aspires to epic status a skyline meditation uncannily pre-echoing Neil Young?s ?Like A Hurricane? while ?The Birth? is lanky and goosey-loose gritted with hoarse harmonica. F Inside Out (1972) they decamped to a Devonshire mansion. Its remoteness from city life is audible in me laidback country-ish textures though ?Homes Fit F Heroes? and ?Double Agent? still dealt with contempary issues. Oa (1973) keeps on trucking through triumphalist rock (?Things On My Mind?) and austerity folk-rock (?Eviction?); the end of the Harvest sty but not the band who continue the mission to this day. In this new age of cuts riots and harsh winters their music might just start making sense.

    biography /
    Fmed in Warwick England the Edgar Broughton Band arrived on the London underground music scene in 1968. Led by the Broughton brothers vocalist / guitarist Edgar and drummer Steve and fleshed out by bassist Arthur Grant and guitarist Vict Unitt (who also briefly served with the Pretty Things) they soon signed with the Harvest label and issued their debut Wasa Wasa a collection of underground electric blues jams anched by Edgar's Captain Beefheart-like vocals in late 1969. The Edgar Broughton Band returned in 1970 with Sing Brother Sing which reached the U.K. Top 20 and spawned a pair of min hit singles "Out Demons Out" and "Apache Drop-Out" (a fusion of Beefheart's "Dropout Boogie" and the Shadows' "Apache"). The group seemed poised f a maj commercial breakthrough but even as their brand of heavy rock was flourishing thanks to groups like Black Sabbath and Deep Purple the Broughton Band made an about-face and their music became considerably me quiet and politically charged. Their chart momentum stalled and a 1971 self-titled efft failed to catch on. After both 1972's Inside Out and 1973's Oa met a similar fate the group left Harvest f NEMS. Legal wrangles locked them out of the studio f a number of months but they finally resurfaced in 1975 - minus Unitt who'd been replaced by guitarist John Thomas - with Bandages. A brief breakup followed but in 1978 they returned with Live Hits Harder. By the release of 1979's Parlez Vous English? the group had expanded to a six-piece using the name the Broughtons. Returning to the Edgar Broughton Band moniker the band became a three-piece f 1982's Super Chip: The Final Silicon Solution a concept album filled with synthesizers and new wave tempos. Touring continued throughout '80s '90s and 2000s. In 2004 the band's six albums f the Harvest label were reissued each featuring numerous bonus tracks.
