Who Has Heard of Electric Sandwich ?

Electric Sandwich
were a jazz rock/fusion band from the city of Bonn in Germany who formed in late 1969.

Their philosophy was simple: forget set songs, just start playing whatever came to mind, plus add Mellotron

The band was certainly not not limited to one single style of music.

Lead guitarist Jorg Ohlert: "We change styles, even in the middle of a song, because we want our music to be alive."

Believe it or not they were discovered on a TV Magazine Talent Show called 'Hor Zu':

'Prog Idol' ?

Their first and only self-titled album was released in 1973, a blend of jazz, blues, rock and psychedelic rock.

For a while they toured with Uriah Heep and disagreed over the direction of the second album

The band split soon after due to creative differences.

Thanx to for putting me on to this one....
