Hampton Grease Band "Music To Eat" Columbia Records
Hampton Grease Band may have ultimately been a band easier to appreciate in concept than to listen to in practice. They are also, for most listeners, a band that's much more fun to read about than to hear. For a brief period, though, they were offering some of the wackiest rock ever to be found on a major label. Clearly influenced by both Zappa and Beefheart, but more grating and even less accessible to the rock underground, they took early-'70s avant-rock aesthetics near their extremes. This guaranteed an eternal cult reputation for the group but also ensured that their commercial success in their own time was virtually nil.

They managed to carve a reputation at a local underground club, as well as by playing support to psychedelic / progressive acts like the Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Procol Harum, and the Allman Brothers. The group steadily developed a more original sound, emphasizing intricate, Zappa-esque guitar lines and Bruce Hampton's off-the-cuff, non-sequitur lyrics, usually shouted in a throaty, scratchy wheeze. They were definitely on their own wavelength, though, carving out a more guitar-oriented sound that skirted even closer to the lunatic fringe. The band then signed to Frank Zappa's Bizarre / Straight label, but broke up in 1973.

After the Grease Band folded, Hampton founded New Ice Age, which soon evolved into the Late Bronze Age. The Late Bronze Age released two albums, Outside Looking Out (1980) and Isles of Langerhan (1982). By 1987, the group had broken up and the guitarist recorded a solo album, Arkansas. Hampton then formed The Aquarium Rescue Unit, an eclectic congregation adept at everything from country-swing jazz to meltdown Southern boogie and over-amped gospel bluegrass. The band's first studio album, Mirrors of Embarrassment, was released in mid-1993, concurrent with an appearance on the H.O.R.D.E. Tour. Shortly after the release of Mirrors of Embarrassment, Hampton left the group.

**Sam Whiteside who was the Grease Bands' road manager for a short time also designed the cover art and most of the artwork on the inside of their album "Music to Eat."
