East Of Eden - 1969 - Mercator Projected

East of Eden was a British progressive rock band from Bristol, who had a Top 10 hit in England with the single, "Jig-a-Jig", in 1971. The track became something of a stylistic albatross around the band's neck, since it did not resemble their usual sound or anything else they normally played. Although some might consider this group as being a symphonic progressive band, others state that their style is mostly jazz oriented. Combining flutes, violins and tape loops to folk, gypsy and psychedelic music, the East of Eden style was always heavily supported on a pure rock base; strong and experimental. Dave Arbus / electric violin, flute, bagpipe, recorders, two saxophones, Ron Caines / Soprano & Alto saxophones (acoustic & amplified), organ, vocals, Dave Dufont / percussions, Geoff Nicholson / guitars, Vocals and Steve York / bass guitar, Harmonica, Indian thumb piano. In 1968 they moved to London, and the group was signed to a recording contract with Decca's progressive rock imprint Deram label. In 1969 they released the Mercator Projected album, followed shortly after by the Snafu and Jig-a-Jig albums (both released in 1970). The band broke up in 1978.
