EAV is an Austrian band formed in 1977 by Thomas Spitzer, Eik Breit, Nino Holm and Anders Stenmo. EAV stands for "(die) Erste Allgemeine Verunsicherung", which means "First General Bewilderment/Unsettling/Uninsurance". "Verunsicherung" is German for "bewilderment/the process of getting upset/unsettled", a pun that plays on the fact that the opposite of it ,"Versicherung", commonly means "insurance", and less commonly "assurance/ensurance/affirmation". In fact, the band's name is an allusion to the now defunct Austrian insurance company "Erste Allgemeine Versicherungs-AG“. Read more about EAV on Last.fm.
