The band was formed at The City of London School in 1968 and was called Uriel. Also in the band at the time was Steve Hillage who soon left with the remaining band members carrying on as a trio. In 1969 they changed their name to Egg and released their debut album in 1970. They completed their second album in 1971 and although accumulating enough material for a third album, they disbanded in 1972 before recording it. They did record it eventually in 1974 after reforming to record this as a farewell album on Virgin.
