    progarchives:
    Anything but a blues band, this combo (named after Montreal's artistic neighbourhood) represents one of the first decisive steps towards Quebec's fabulous first prog era, which would last until the turn of the decade? And it all started with this group, which was more of a loose aggregation of anything that Montreal counted as rock musicians at the time, and is really a pot pourri of musicians to be found later in TOUBABOU, CONTRACTION, HARMONIUM, AQUARELLE and more. 
    While the resulting music may seem nowadays a bit messy by today's standards, the "supergroup" was more of a happy-go-lucky affair (often touring on a full truck trailer as a stage) or as could be described in French: un joyeux foutoir. Yet as loose as they might seem (or this text might make them appear to be), on stage VEBB was a very tight unit even if they were up to 20 on stage. They started out in 73 with a self-released "bootleg" album called: Minute, VEBB S'En Vient. The following year, after landing a recording contract, they had released a double live album called "Live à Montreal", which had a good impact in the province. The following year, the group released their only studio album, simply called: Ville Emard, for which they got a Juno nomination (that year won by RUSH). Their sound was rather eclectic oscillating between prog, jazz-rock and funk and often sounding a bit like Santana. Clearly one of the central player of the band is percussionist (congas mostly) Michel Seguin who would work with most groups of the province, but starting with TOUBABOU, which can be seen as the most direct descendant of VEBB. But by the end of the year, the group had disintegrated.
    In 79, will see the double Lp compilation released and in 2004, a CD reissue of their material was fittingly one of ProgQuebec's first releases. ~ Hugues Chantraine, Belgium
