I'm not sure what to call what we are trying to do here. Possibly rock music, with a touch of blues, jazz, hard rock, some country, some folk, and some reggae. We're trying to keep it earthy, real, at times it could get a bit retro, and will tend towards live style in studio recordings (the band actually playing together to make a cut), but not in all cases. Dave does all the drumming, and Ed joins occasionally for some bass work.
Band/artist history
At first there was Iron Cross, then Blue Condition, then AKM, then This Group, then Easy Access, then some solo work as MBand, then a name change of that solo work to Ezy Axis, then the drummer re-joined and we found we were getting more and more earthy, and the style of the material that was part of the Ezy Axis back catalog was not in line with the re-formed bands sound. That new band consisting of myself, Dave, and Ed occasionally sitting in on bass.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
We did, but not recently. Our most memorable gig was way back in 1983 or so where played an orginal punk/new wave band at the Lit Club in Hartford CT. The name of the band at the time was AKM.
