The Herd: Move 'Em Out It's The Real Herd

Chris Welch, Melody Maker, 6 April 1968

A POACHED egg is many things to many people. To advertising copy writers, it is a symbol of health and efficiency. To the savages of Outer M'balawi, it is an integral part of their strange, and often nauseating fertility rites. To Peter Frampton, it is a source of endless battles with thick waiters in unhealthy and inefficient cafes.
