Equals - Funky statement

Why band name Equals - Eddy Grant - Record sleeveEnglish reggae and rock band from the North of London with a band name that was a kind of statement.

Because three fifths of the Equals were 'colored' musicians (including blonde wig wearing Eddie Grant, who wrote their biggest hit - Baby Come Back) and the remaining two fifths were not.

And apparently at that time that was still odd enough in the Anglo-Saxon world to dedicate a band name to.

Active: 1965-1979, GBR
