Elephant & Castle

Born in London at the end of the 80s, the french band E&C had turned the established order of prog rock upside down. They invented an elaborate music, inflated with the energies of Led Zep, Queen or Alice Cooper. The band was compared to such icons as IQ, Rush and Saga. One album (The Green One 1991), one tour, and then it’s over? No way. Two albums (one studio, one live), are released in 2021
