When Rush released their Feedback CD a few years back I hoped that on the back of good reviews they would somehow reconnect with a more simple approach to rock. Ditch the multi-layerd post-production nonsense and get back to where they belong. I'm not strictly hankering after the late 70s early 80s sound. But to hear what Rush might have been, check out Leeds based The Music's 'Welcome To The North'. These chaps even throw in an instrumental track at the end. They've probably never even heard of Rush, but to these aged ears they are where I wish Rush would be. And 'Snakes' though it has it's moments, is miles away from stripped back rock and roll.
