The Egg have released 3 albums; the 1st two on China Records ‘Albumen’ (get it?) in 1996, then ‘Travelator’ in 1998 and most recently ‘Forwards’ in 2004 on Squarepeg Records, licensed around the world, including Spectacle Entertainment (neurodisc) in USA
Their first Album ‘Albumen’ was more strictly dance/post acid jazz, funk/ambient instrumentals, played live, and reflecting the live set. The 2nd album ‘Travelator’, was more influenced by Big Beat, more heavily club orientated and had more songs. it was produced by Tim Holmes.
Recently the band’s third album ‘Forwards’ has seen a more reflective slower sound, but also in places heavier and rockier than anything before. Also more of a psychedelic warmth holding different eclectic influences together. However, live, the band have kept their full on dance and festival style fully intact, with a full interactive film and video synchronised show with visual created by Todd Graft & Mischa @ www.microchunk.com), Max Hattler, and Maff from the bands own 8 & 16mm films and flash animations.
