Josh Pear­son, EBN’s cha­ris­mat­ic front man and prin­cip­al per­form­ance artist, was also EBN’s music com­poser and main video edit­or. The music and video edit­ing tech­niques he per­son­ally developed and refined have been hugely influ­en­tial on a gen­er­a­tion of advert­ising and music video editors.

The first EBN video pro­ject was a music­al remix of the Gulf War, cre­ated in 1991 as the war was still ongo­ing. The VHS tape of the remix pro­ject, which con­tained the George H.W. Bush “We Will Rock You” cov­er, became a vir­al under­ground hit, and was dis­trib­uted widely by fans as bootleg cop­ies. In the sum­mer of 1991, EBN traveled with the first Lol­lap­a­looza tour, dis­trib­ut­ing tapes and show­ing their videos on a mod­i­fied sta­tion wag­on with TVs on the roof. The group also became well known for their media sculp­tures and stage props which were cre­ated by Gard­ner Post.
