Fig Leaf


-following from P.A. (www.progarchives.com) FIG LEAF started up in 1990 as a five piece under the name FIG LEAF MUSEUM. Aage Skar - guitar, Paal Iversen - drums, Gunnar Berg - keyboards, Steinar Ellefsen - vocals and Egil Troa - bass. This line up lasted about a year. Steinar left and was replaced by Leif Lunde. This did not work out, and by this time bass player Egil Troa was already drifting away. The bass was taken over by Rolf Bakken. This line up made the first recording 'Hum' in 1992.

Steinar left and was replaced by Leif Lunde. This did not work out, and by this time bass player Egil Troa was already drifting away. The bass was taken over by Rolf Bakken. This line up made the first recording 'Hum' in 1992. This was an extremely low budget project, and the sound leaves no doubt about that fact.

Still struggling to find a singer, the quartet became a trio with Gunnar taking over the vocals. In Autumn '94 the trio was contacted by Per Flaa, who demanded to join in. By May '95 this line-up shortened the name to FIG LEAF and in the Autumn the first real FIG LEAF album 'Plays Bob W. & Other Selections', saw the light of day. And in '97 'The Humble Poet' was released. The sounds of the band is compared by many to the sound of the '70s.

This might be due to the slightly aged equipment they like to play: Rhodes electric piano, Leslie 760, Mesa Boogie, Gibson and Stratocaster. FIG LEAF are influenced by bands such as KING CRIMSON, GENESIS, ELP, as well as bands like ZAPPA, SANTANA, HENDRIX, The STONES, The WHO, YES, MEGADETH and Peter HAMMILL. The band themselves were quite surprised to find that as well as the obvious prog rock fans coming to their concerts, but also there were a lot of doom, death and black metal fans too. : : : Greger Rönnqvist, SWEDEN : : : Read more on Last.fm.
