This album (along with Led Zeppelin vol 1) made me buy a drum kit - not that I ever reached the dizzy heights of excellence that Phil Collins reaches on this great album. This is jazz-rock fusion drum and bass that eclipses all in its wake. The tightest most expressive illustration of the gnre ever produced. The burbling basslines are mesmeric, and the guitar playing from the very top drawer - but its Collins, still ten years from becoming the housewives' favourite who shows that he is primarily a top notch musician - buy it and marvel

DSR mentions Derek Jewell's review on the radio. I remember it well, as my brother and I recorded it and I can never hear this album without thinking of his reference to the 'crisp drumming of Phil Collins'. This was, for me and a lot of others, the pinnacle of Collins' career and I still tap the odd drum figure from this album with a teaspoon on the cocoa tin on a winter night. Chris Welch wrote of Percy Jones' 'squirting basslines' and it's the mixture of those, Collins' imaginative drums and Goodsall and Lumley's inventive and non-egotistic playing that makes this album a landmark.

Recorded way back in 1975 this was the first Brand X release. It is certainly (with perhaps the exception of parts of Livestock) the loosest and most unstructured of their recordings. Highlights include the live favourite "Nuclear Burn" with its jagged raw beat, and my own favourite "Smacks Of Euphoric Hysteria" featuring Jones' rubbery Fender fretless bass. One criticism here is the mix which puts Collins' drums and Jones' bass very much at the front. This gives it a rather muddy feel. In fact all the Brand X Charisma recordings are long overdue for re-mastering. This record certainly set the tone for that Brand X weirdness that infected all subsequent releases, but this showcases them at the peak of their humour and "innocence".

Regarded by us "fans" as Phil Collins' part time band (even if this wasn't strictly true), I first heard of Brand X on Derek Jewell's show on Radio 3 at that time. This record and the ones that followed it were used extensively as HiFi dem discs where I worked in the late seventies and I loved it enough to go on to collect them all and even saw them live at the "Venue" - a very happy and memorable experience...

As a previous reviewer put it, there are no "ego's" here. All the musicians are excellent at their job and Philip Collins, as he's often credited on this bands recordings, is having a ball; developing his drumming skills way beyond what's needed for his Genesis work. Percy Jones became notorious for his fretless bass work too...

The thing about this band for me was that they never appeared to take themselves seriously, the good humour coming out in practically every record they made. This is not to say the music wasn't seriously played though, as all the band members were more than able to make their instruments "talk" to you. Being this good does free the imagination I'm sure as playing technique doesn't get in the way any longer in the compositions.

If you find some "prog" stuff from the seventies a bit "up itself," PLEASE give Brand X a try (if you don't know them as yet). The music has stood the test of time and is as fresh now as it was then.

P.S. The original recordings were very good as I recall, having heard a couple of master tape tracks on occasion, but the band's CD's do sound a bit small and constricted for some reason, compared to the original LP's. Perhaps one day they will be looked at again..

If anyone wants to know what 70/80 progress jazz rock was all about listen to this album! Every track is a winner and features great musicans including Phil Collins before he realized he could sing....

Phil Collins was obviously a bit bored with Genesis by the mid 1970's (lots of other people were also arriving at the same conclusion) and he had a sideline as a session drummer for rather more experimental people such as Brian Eno (e.g. the lovely Another Green World)
Having met Percy Jones on said album as well as John Goodsall & Robin Lumley on works for Eddie Howell & Jack Lancaster they became Brand X and released this album to a not tremendously excited world.
On relection, Brand X never really had a chance, it was 1976 and the floodgates of New Wave/Punk were about to break. Playing clever jazz rock was about to become extremely unfashionable.
To a teenage Gong/Soft Machine fan however, it seemed that not all was lost as 3 chords of unmelodic and moronic punk crap was unleashed on one side and the horrors of disco pap attacked from the other flank. Probably a mistake to have played it in its entirity to prospective girlfriends though... Hmmmm
Intelligent, amusing and even profound (e.g. Touch Wood) their debut album set the tone for their short career. No vocals & none needed, I could loop this album plus Livestock together & listen for quite some time.
It is an everlasting testament to how crass & useless the music industry is that Brand X never made it but Phil Collins 'soul' records sold millions to people who presumably had never heard the original source material.
Still... he is a damn good drummer and I don't have to play my wifes collection of his solo crap!
Enough already - at the price I paid for my copy it is dirt cheap and well worth 40 minutes of your time.......
