Band formed in 1969 by [a=Dave Stewart] (organ), [a=Mont Campbell] (bass/vocals) and [a=Clive Brooks] (drums), who were all formerly in [a=Uriel (7)].

Egg toured the UK extensively and recorded three highly acclaimed albums (Egg, The Polite Force and The Civil Surface) before breaking up in 1972. After Hillage left Uriel for college Egg landed a record deal and then Uriel also reformed to record under the name [a=Arzachel] with Hillage still only 17 years old.

The first album shows some [a=Soft Machine] influences and a focus on unusual time signatures that [a=Dave Stewart] would also explore with later bands [a=Hatfield and the North] and [a=National Health]. Egg and Stewart's other projects tend to get lumped into the 'Canterbury Scene' with the extended Soft Machine and Gong families of musicians.
