Morning Parade are an alternative rock band from Harlow, Essex, comprising vocalist/guitarist Steve Sparrow, bassist Phill Titus, guitarist Chad Thomas, keyboardist Ben Giddings, and drummer Andrew Hayes. The band was formed in 2007 and after signing to Parlophone a few years later, they released this song as a demo for free download on morningparade.com in Spring 2010.
The song title is an abbreviation for Accident and Emergency, which in the UK is a common name for the emergency department of a hospital.
Sparrow told The Sun: "A&E is a song about feeling paranoid about infidelity when we were all having women trouble."
If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
