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..
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.......
