I got this after reading reviews of K-Scope (also worth a look) in which 801 were mentioned. After 25 years it's still one of my favourite albums. The music is relatively laid back (but nowhere near ambient or new age, don't misunderstand me) and the songs vary from the whimsical to really quite biting satire. For me, the title track is the best of the set combining good melody and some really sharp lyrics, but there are *no* bad tracks.

My only complaint would be that the recording is also laid back and (on LP at least) I've got to have the wick turned up for best effect.

The roster of musicians on the album is impressive, along with Manzanera are Eno, Dave Mattacks, Simon Phillips and Tim Finn plus others who will be familiar to anyone who remembers the 70s.

‘Listen Now!!’ was originally credited to Phil Manzanera/801 and was released in early 1978. After the Roxy Music de-volution of 75/76, Manzanera had enjoyed a critical triumph with the formation of 801, who played only three gigs (one of which was recorded and released as ‘801 Live’, widely regarded as one of the best ‘in concert’ rock albums ever made). 801 was comprised of Phil himself on guitar, Eno on synthesizers and lead vocals, Francis Monkman (ex-Curved Air) on keyboards, Lloyd Watson (slide guitar), Bill McCormick (of Gong, Soft Machine and Matching Mole) on bass and ace session drummer Simon Phillips, who is perhaps best known to rock fans as the skinsman on the third Judas Priest album ‘Sin After Sin’. This front-rank supergroup focused on work from Eno and Manzanera’s solo projects and a few carefully chosen classic covers. Although Manzanera later resurrected the 801 name several times, the original lineup never played together or recorded again.

For what was really his second solo album (the first being the mostly excellent ‘Diamond Head), Manzanera decided to put some focus on politics, possibly in response to the rise of Punk Rock. In this sense, ‘Listen Now!!’ is typical of albums from this period, when musicians who might have been categorised as Technoflash or Prog adopted New Wave sentiments to appear up to speed with the zeitgeist – a similar example might be Steve Swindells’ ‘Fresh Blood’. However, in this case, there was some genuine interest –Manzanera had gone on record as saying he liked The Clash a lot, but wondered about political messages getting lost in the violent Punk approach to noise.

I bought this one when I was a student in the late 70s and I still own the long-playing gramophone record. I'm not quite sure why I bought it in the first place - possibly after a review in Melody Maker. However, I enjoyed it a lot at the time and it got played frequently. I'm now making more of an effort to listen to my old LPs again so out this one came.

How to describe it? There are some good songs with interesting lyrics - at least as far as I've ever been able to decipher them. "And now all your lives are bought and sold, and just for some Law and Order" - still has a bit of resonance today. "Postcard Love" has an old-fashioned charm - who on earth would think of sending a postcard now anyway? And "City Of Light" suggests that our modern cities aren't really such friendly places. Musically, there's a bit of a mix - enough jazzy inflections in the instrumentals to classify it as prog-rock, some classy but not flashy guitar from Phil M himself, appropriate use of saxophones.

The musicians' credit list is quite impressive. I guess the reason it took so long to record is just over getting different groups of them together in the studio. That might make it a bit of a mess, but it isn't - it has a consistent overall feeling, sufficient to always make me want to play the whole album through. If you like arty 70s rock, this is probably for you, so I suggest you follow the title and Listen Now.

I happened to hear Listen Now today in the car on my way to B&Q. Ended up sitting in the car park reminded of a happily, dreamily misspent youth - couldn't recall what I was doing in a B&Q car park so drove home . . .
