1. Egg, The Canterbury band that released only three organ-prominent albums! After guitarist Steve Hillage left the band Uriel (also known as Arzachel), the other members, keyboardist Dave Stewart (organ, piano and tone generator) , bassist Mont Campbell (also organ, piano and French Horn), and drummer Clive Brooks reformed themselves as a trio. They released a pair of eccentric, complex, mostly-instrumental albums in 1969 (Egg) and 1970 (The Polite Force) before splitting up. Stewart joined Hatfield & The North at that time, and Egg reformed briefly to record one more album, The Civil Surface, in 1974. Their music is very structured and composed, with classical pieces Johann Sebastian Bach and some light jazzy influences.

2. Julien Roy is known for his work behind the renown artistic collective Artificiel and has releases on the Oral and PeP labels.

    Little rock history: In 1969 the so-called "progressive" or "undrerground" rock boom was taking hold of Britain's long haired youth. Short "pop" material was out and long complex compositions, drawing their inspiration from jazz, blues, psychedelia and classical music, was the order of the day. Album sales had overtaken single sales considerably and, anxious to capitalize on this new trend, the major UK record companies established imprints (inspired by the success of independents such as Island and Elektra) with an "underground" credibility and scouted for acts to sign. EMI Records established Harvest with great success whilst Phillips developed Vertigo and Decca label as companion to their Deram imprint. >> Of the initial releases and the Nova label, few had the quality or enjoyed the subsequent status of the debut album by a young trio from London who had assumed the identity of EGG. The trio who comprised the group had evolved from a band formed at the city of London School, Uriel.

    mweave5707 because even thought they all share a significant number of members, they don't really sound similar at all.

    The Polite Force has to be their best. The Civil Surface is good, but like Dirk Campbell says, the mixing is terrible on that album.

    I don't know why it took me so long to really get into this band (Prog band), they are so amazing. Polite Force is currently rocking my socks, which are currently in the other room.
