Superchip: The Final Silicon Solution?
(1982)

Superchip: The Final Silicon Solution? is the eighth and final album by the Edgar Broughton Band. This album saw them on their own record label, and also saw them returning to their original moniker, "Edgar Broughton Band" as opposed to The Broughtons as they were called on their previous album, Parlez-Vous English?. This album still sees the band with a slightly different sound, with prominent use of synthesisers, but still retaining their original psychedelic rock roots. The album was originally released as "Sheet Records Sheet 2" in 1982. The 2006 CD reissue features one bonus track, which was an electronic dance track created by Edgar Broughton and his son, Luke Broughton.

Notes

The song "Innocent Bystanders (Damian and Soola)" contains a very strong reference to the previous album. During the track we hear the lyrics

"He's a second coming Nazi with a fancy little tartsie He met her at the party on the last L.P."

This is a reference the first track on the previous album where a man meets a girl at a party.
