The legendary singer songwriter/guitarist Edgar Broughton was a founder member of the Edgar Broughton Band, often labelled by music reviewers and critics as acid rock/proto-punk. The band were founded in 1968 and carried on initially right through to 1976 (with some chart success) and were an EMI signed artist. Very much part of the late 60’s and early 70’s underground scene the band were unique in that their political consciousness was very much to the fore. Heavily influenced by Captain Beefheart they were perhaps best known for their chant ‘Out demons , Out!

One of the first proponents of free concerts and well known as one of the most strident protest bands , but one of the most accessible – their live performances showcased a surprisingly diverse repertoire of self-penned material.

Since performing as a solo artiste Edgars self reinvention is finding a new audience, while still appealing to the long time fans.

His involvement with political activism has continued down the years and many of his songs reflect this. His solo acoustic performance is an emotive, entertaining tour de force containing both new songs and old favourites.

In October 2023 Edgar released a new album on Esoteric Recordings/Cherry Red called BREAK THE DARK. This is a collection of beautiful and poignant love songs as well as dark songs about the times we live in and the choices we make.
