Crack in the Cosmic Egg:
Swiss hard-rock band formed by members of the original Brainticket, Toad's history is obscure and largely undocumented. Really, when considering their roots, it's surprising as to what Toad were, however they were principally the vehicle of guitarist Vic Vergeat.
Their debut is pretty much in the British heavy rock style, with blues edges and a few nods to Krautrock, particularly in the freakier instrumental sections. After this their lead singer Benjamin Jäger went on to Island. With Vic and Werni taking over the vocal roles, a lot of dual vocal elements as heard in bands like Jane and Harlis, became the focus of their second album TOMORROW BLUE which was even straighter hard-rock than the debut, akin to Sperrmüll, with notable Hendrix and (especially) Status Quo feeling.
With the addition of keyboards, on DREAMS, a more mellow stance was taken, with a few more progressive touches too. Vic Vergeat - the leader of Toad - also made two albums with Harvest/EMI in 1981/1982. We have no idea what the reformation album is like, but we guess it will be more of the same!
