Egdon Heath was formed in Leeuwarden (The Netherlands) in 1981. The time of the punk, the time that symphonic rock, according to the so-called 'experts', was dead. Jaap Mulder (piano, synthesizers, vocals), Wolf Rappard (synthesizers, vocals) and Valere Wittevrongel (drums) had no other choice but to follow their hearts and therefore with good spirits they rowed against the flow. In the bedroom of the drummer they worked on their reportoire every week. For a long time it was experimental and atmospheric. But the trio wanted to move on.
