Biography

Francis Anthony “Eg” White is a British musician, songwriter and producer.

He started his career in the bands Yip Yip Coyote and, with his brother David, Brother Beyond in the late 1980s, leaving the latter when they became involved with the songwriting team of Stock, Aitken and Waterman and just prior to their chart successes.

In 1990 White teamed up with London model and BMX champion Alice Temple, and together they recorded the critically acclaimed pop album 24 Years Of Hunger, which was released in 1991 under the name Eg and Alice. It was described by All Music Guide as “one of the finest, most refined and fully realized recordings of the era, employing a much more sophisticated and romantic style than anything else out of England at the time”. In spite of the critical acclaim (the album featured in many major music publications top 50 albums of 1991) and two well received singles Indian and Doesn’t Mean That Much to Me, the album failed to enter the UK top 75 chart.

In 1992 White produced the debut, self titled album by Kinky Machine, then disappeared from the music scene until 1996 when he released his debut solo album Turn Me On, I’m a Rocket Man, again critically acclaimed, although the singles Stay Home (written by Andy Sturmer, originally recorded by Jellyfish) and Made My Baby Cry failed to chart. In 1997 he provided instrumentation for the sessions of Suggs’ solo album The Three Pyramids Club, but in 1999 his career really started to take off as he became an in-demand songwriter, musician and producer.

    Agree, Hills. Also, the picture is Bernard Butler, I think, certainly not Eg anyway.

    Jeez, this page is a mess. Eg is the artist featured in the biog, however the tracks offered are from an album by John Doe, confusingly entitled EG. Sadly Lastfm's error reporting system can't seem to cope with sorting this out.
