Live Reviews

'EBB captivated audiences at the Fusion and Prog for Peart festivals, and have previously been featured in this mag's Limelight section, so anticipation builds ahead of their set. The explosive initial impact is huge, the band instantly generating a universe of musical and physical expression to convey their multifaceted takes on the human condition. The focal point, wild-haired singer-guitarist Erin Bennett, exudes an edgy, dynamic charisma, her voice laser-like in its directness and clarity. Flanking her is the interpretive, flowing movement of backing singer Kitty Biscuits together with synth player Suna Dasi, who heighten their dramatic genre-busting songs that focus on classic and space rock, interspersed with dashes of psychedelia, folk and jazz.'

'EBB, following, are excellent. There's always one band that grabs the audience at these events and makes it their own...They are the band of the weekend.'

Prog Magazine issue 145 By: Jerry Ewing

'Well, EBB spectacularly woke up the Fusion audience with an intoxicating display of high-class rock tinged with Prog and dripping with sensuality... ‘Cost and Consequences’ featured a fantastic keyboard from Nikki Francis, who was excellent throughout. Kitty Biscuits was particularly impassioned in this impactful song and imaginatively her crying voice morphs into a keening guitar sound from the talented Bennett.

EBB finished with great aplomb with a positive song of redemption from their excellent debut album ‘Mad and Killing Time’ in the flowing ‘Mary Jane’… and the Fusion crowd instantly gave them a standing ovation. EBB will surely keep flowing onwards and upwards.'

'...Scottish sextet Ebb deliver a polished and impassioned set of space rock, ballads, inventive grooves and straight-up rockers. Endlessly entertaining, the band embrace variety:'

Press Quotes

'2023 proved to be quite a breakthrough for this previously little-known band from Scotland, with attention-grabbing, high quality, and high-octane performances...

...shows that EBB who, under all their rock and roll pizzazz and brimming stage energy, are also a very thoughtful band who draw deeply from the well of their emotions and are not afraid to touch on important subjects.'

The Progressive Aspect 19, January 2024 By: Leo Trimming

'Scottish six-piece, EBB started the year with the release of their new EP, 'The Management of Consequences.'  Wrapped in lush synth swathes and passionate vocal performances, EBB's lookout on the human insignificance on a cosmic scale in light (or lack thereof) of Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole at the centre of our galaxy, seems quite a bit more nihilistic...Yet EBB managed to keep their earthy sound so enticing and warm that they almost made me forget the infinite void of black holes altogether.'

ProgSpace Review By: Dario

'This collective create music that is subtly different from even the most left-field stuff that you will hear, cleverly constructed but with a flippant, iconoclastic, devil-may-care attitude that clearly resonates with their fans and they are gaining more admirers every time they take to the stage at the many festivals they play.

It is attention-grabbing music but EBB have the necessary chops to back it all up, which they prove time and time again in a live setting. The EP closes way too early with the incendiary 'Nieu', an in-your-face, frantic four minutes of pure musical genius. The guitar and keys hit you with an addictive, demented riff and the drums and bass feel hewn from granite, add in the darkly delicious vocals and you have something utterly, and wickedly, addictive. Damn, this is all over way too quick so you just have to go back and press play again!'

Prog Radar Review By: Martin Hutchinson

'Musically, the band are equally ambitious, these three tracks broad in scope and excellent in execution, with singer Erin Bennett as expressive as you could wish for.

There's no doubt this is impressive stuff that marks EBB out as an act to watch. The musical skills on show really are captivating, and crucially, the songwriting is tight and engaging, while still be able to challenge in all the right places. Where they go from here should be very interesting to follow indeed.'

Sea of Tranquility Review By: Steven Reid

'Here's a resolution for 2024 - get yourself a copy of the excellent 'The Management of Consequences' the latest EP from EBB...

If you've caught any of the band's YouTube performances you'll know how impressive they are live...

All tracks are penned by Erin Bennett (lead guitar and vocals) but the first movement of Silent Saviour is an instrumental delight allowing the whole band to showcase their talents without the need for any attention stealing solos prog rock was known for in the 70s. From there you will be hooked and after the final track fades, you'll have the same two questions I have:

When can I get even more music from EBB, and

When can I see them live anywhere near me?

As to the first, I hope (being greedy) we get more in 2024 (though a good start), the second is partly answered by their current tour plans. I've just to work out which venue I can get to!'

-Reality Checkpoint Review By; Tony Jones

'Mad & Killing Time' is an album to savour. Listening through headphones is simply the best way to get the most out of it in my own opinion. It is progressive and arty, but it never becomes too clever for its own good or to put it a cruder way disappears up its own arse!'

'...later I went to see them play in a club in be honest I was blown away by their performance.' [Of 'The Animal Said "I"] '...It is so powerful, emotional and beautiful. Stunning and classy...'

CGCM Radio (UK)

'[EBB] shines seriously brightly as a slice of scything prog-rock unleashed to perfection. [an] exceptional slice of new-look Prog.' [of 'Mary Jane'] ' ...this hugely emotive track drops to earth once more, totally captures your heart and ends the album with complete passion and powerful restraint, just one stunning song and a perfect close to what's been a flawless album.'

The Sound (UK)

'[EBB are] one of the most fascinating new acts in the British progressive rock scene. The band use up to three vocalists who hook you in immediately. However, this is a band that also enjoys developing instrumental passages...'

'The 'Mad & Killing Time' physical version includes an inviting 48-page book with plenty of band photos, lyrics and credits.'

Progressive Rock Central (USA)

'Mad & Killing Time is an extraordinary effort from the group, and upon repeated listens, it now comes without a shadow of a doubt that this is their apex....wave of lush organs that is eventually joined by a combo of cool riffs, Bad Dog and Anna's bloody superb rhythm unit, and sweet deforming electronics that generate this phenomenally rousing energy... it's flawlessly crafted.'

Small Music Scene (UK)

['Mad & Killing Time' is] a recommended listen for all lovers of prog sounds...[EBB manage] to create their own personal style, inspired by the 70s but proposed in a fresh and modern version.'  [Of 'Heacate] 'An ever-changing track with precise tempo changes...the music is a concentrate of power and technique with darker passages and intertwining electric guitar and keyboard.'

Progressive Rock Journal (Italy)

'In a world where musical mediocrity and lowest common denominator equates to highest commercial sales, EBB and Mad & Killing Time are a breath of fresh, Art for Art(rock)'s sake, air. A touch of witchcraft and night-magic...dark rock underworld...'

Fabrications HQ (UK)

'What you get with EBB is brilliantly constructed songs, incredible musicianship and an odd, quirky attitude that is entirely unique...when you listen to as much new music as I do, it takes something truly special to stand out and 'Mad & Killing Time' is just that, EBB delivering a musical highlight of the year and one that is totally unique to this incredibly talented bunch of artists.'


'channeling a gritty, earthier, early King Crimson.

Gutsy, authentic and multifaceted rock..'

Prog Magazine issue 138 (UK)

'The tone of the album is quite dark, but EBB keep it interesting with some great vocals and also some fantastic musical interludes.

This is a great album. Be sure to buy the physical version, as the band has really gone to town on the packaging.'

Powerplay Magazine issue 259 (UK)

'It is an album of a decidedly good level, the result of a metamorphosis...[they] use increasingly rich and eclectic instrumentation...articulated and complex.'

Arlequins Webzine (Italy)

'['Mad & Killing Time'] really repays repeated listens as unexpected or previously unnoticed pleasures reveal themselves... a Van der Graaf Generator-style maelstrom, full of off-kilter saxophones and a melting pot of unsettling sounds – you never quite know where it’s going!

...EBB have combined powerful rock and more pastoral shades throughout the album. The album is so enjoyable on whatever level you engage with it.'

The Progressive Aspect (UK)

'EBB's take on progressive rock is an inclusive one, with the band not really seeing any particular boundaries that need to be followed. Which is always refreshing. One might describe ['Mad & Killing Time'] as classic progressive-rock explored with a rebellious approach and a little bit of punk attitude. An album well worth spending some time with if this is a description that sounds intriguing.' (Uzbekistan)

'For me, EBB's 'Mad & Killing Time' would have been a top ten entry for last year had I heard it sooner.

This is super stuff; alive, dexterous and poetic. Songwriting of a high order.' (The Netherlands)

EBB were a band, the Erin Bennett Band, who played pop-rock. But they kept straying off into Prog Rock and ruining it. 

So they finally listened to their own voices and went full Prog. You couldn't get a happier bunch of puppies.

Writing and rehearsing within an arts collective makes impromptu, noisy jam sessions a little easier than, perhaps, for those who live with intolerant neighbours, families, dogs and hamsters.

The resulting music performance and, these days, video and live actors, is best described as bespoke, rather than pleasingly generic. In other words, one likes it or one doesn't.

Rest assured, the band members themselves will be having a great time! 

Living in Scotland but hailing from all around the world, the band get on with each other irritatingly well. Also, they can't wait to meet you!”
