Biography

Shepherds Bush, London (1987 – present)

There are three bands and one soloist listed using this name.

1. Egypt (US)
Egypt is a 70’s influenced hard & heavy psychedelic stoner doom 3-piece hailing from Fargo, North Dakota. The band started in 2003 and in 2004, recorded a Self-Titled demo in their practice spot and it became the demo that wouldn’t die. Lyderhorn Records decided to remaster and officially release the demo in vinyl form in 2008. Egypt is inspired by and will appeal to fans of Sleep, Sir Lord Baltimore, Deep Purple, etc.

2. Egypt (UK)

The Early Years.
Egypt’s original line up first got together in a squat in Shepherds Bush, London in late 1987, but the story really begins a few weeks before when bass player Alan Fish and our first drummer Peter Chichon met at an audition for another band which included Don Greer (ex-Bachman Turner Overdrive and others). Don would later fill in for a broken-thumbed Eric Chipulina whilst Egypt were in the US for a short while in the early 90s. Alan, who had recently left Dumpys Rusty Nuts, had played since the mid-seventies with the legendary Tony TS McPhee in The Groundhogs, Terraplane, & Tony McPhee’s Turbo, recording several albums. He later joined Tredegar (with ex-Budgie members Ray Philips and Tony Bourge) and was involved in many other projects including a European tour with Chuck Berry and a couple of albums with ex-Bo Diddley harp player Billy Boy Arnold.
