5.0 out of 5 stars It's New On Me But............., 21 Dec 2004

I'm too young to have been a fan first time around but as a long time devotee of John Peel and fan of Beefheart and the totally unrestrained end of psychedelia it was only a matter of time before I stumbled on this. Basically, it rocks good and hard, remains unafraid of letting lunacy into the lyrics and takes off into the realms of excess with impressive confidence. Edgar's immense vocal power holds its own throughout the loudest sections and the thudding blues elements never get boring because the lyrics explode with twists, turns and off the wall ideas. Wasa Wasa was recommended to me by a long-time Edgarite as the best start, but I've bought others since.

5.0 out of 5 stars up yours edgar, 24 Sep 2003

Still have my vinyl copy of this extraordinary & brilliant first album by the Edgar Broughton Band, but bought the cd since my phono player packed in. I must state that whoever transferred it to cd has failed to provide the best quality (why does this happen since i have bought cds at rock bottom prices and the quality is excellent), despite this I still give it 5 stars for the music alone(come on BGO, modern technology etc!!, no excuses, get it right, you do most times). Back to the Broughtons, they were amazing live, amazing on record ( not a cheap version of Beefheart as many would have us believe, despite the dubious version of Apache, fortunately not on this album). The songs on this album are the trio at there best; vocals & guitar by Edgar, bass by Arthur Grant & drums by brother Steve Broughton featuring songs that rock as hard as they come, on subjects which cover sex, war, politics, armegedon..........who knows......!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply one of the finest prog/psych albums ever recorded, 9 Oct 2006

The real treats here are "Death of an Electric Citizen" and "Love In the Rain", but to be perfectly frank the whole album is fantastic. This is blues-based, fuzz-laden psych rock at it's very best. Experimental yet listenable, heavy yet melodic, freak-out yet musical. What more can you ask for?! Edgar's voice owes a lot to Captain Beefheart, and the guitar is often reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix. That's the territory we're in here, but EBB are highly original. They're not that well known, they're from a little town in the English Midlands called Warwick, but without them the history of progressive music would've been quite different. That's how good this lot are. If you're into psych/prog and you haven't got anything by Edgar Broughton then you're missing out, big time!

For those that remember, many great bands in the 60's were purely live, and produced few or no records. Ah, the days before pop marketing and pop videos.
Living in North London, I saw the band about a dozen times, in great venues of the time such as The Roundhouse, Cook's Ferry Inn and Wake Arms Hotel. Who didn't take all their clothes off to the chant of "Out Demons Out" then? No-one? .....So it was just me then?
I have always thought that they would have been a great Punk Rock band during the Punk period.
Edgar Broughton are heavy, gritty and loud; most of the time. The lyrics are quite good too. I'm sure that a new generation would appreciate them in the right environment.
Although the album is produced in the studio, it doesn't lack the presence of the live act.
Close the curtains..."Out Demons Out!"

A must for any collection. Worn out 3 vynil versions so now have the CD. Edgar is still gigging and belting out the old favorites.

Unable to give a true rating, as CD was forwarded to my brother in Australia who had requested this particular CD. But it arrived promptly.
