An old "Zigzag" article on the TEB discovered!

Thanks the rare kindness of one of my favourite English Web music shop - the brilliant BEATCHAPTER ( - I've got another old precious article about the Third Ear Band published on "Zigzag" (issue 10) on March 1970.
"Zigzag" magazine was a well respected rock folk blues publication started by Pete Frame in April 1969 and lasted until January 1986. On this issue with the Third Ear Band also articles/reviews about Arthur Lee (on the cover), Canned Heat, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Zombies, Hawkwind, Leonard Cohen and the great less-known David Ackles.

Written by Steve Peacock, this is a very interesting analysis of TEB music, its nature of avant-garde music, brave and free  - not simple improvisation...
A pop(ular) attitude, as the Band used to state at that time, even if Glen Sweeney was so conscious about the risk to be misconceived to say: "The worst thing is to take the pop scene seriously"...
