LEST WE FORGET BRIAN AUGER
Saturday 12 October 1996
As young bands like Oasis and Kula Shaker demonstrate, old music can be pretty cool, too. We've been through the Beatles, the Kinks, the glam revival. Could Jazz rock fusion be next? Check out Brian Auger and his latest Oblivion Express, a band which he first formed in 1970. Auger is a true fusion pioneer, once voted best jazz organist in the world, a Grammy nominee and a musician who has been in and out of the limelight... and survived.
