Ergo got tired of being everyone’s sidekick. For years he laboured as whistler for Magnus Moriarty, bouzouki player for Now We’ve got Members and tone generator operator for The Center of the Universe. All the while he conducted small experiments in sound back home in Ergoland. In Ergoland Ergo was his own boss and could do precisely as he wanted. There were no spiritual advisors or singer/songwriter primadonnas to push him around. Ergo plays a sort of off-center pop music comprised of white-keys-only piano, cosmic folksong, closet electronics and a hint of amateur recorder flute. Ergo has released the 3″ EP Reclaim the Mall! on Metronomicon Audio and a CD, entitled “Mountaineering”.
