I got ‘Til Tuesday’s Voices Carry when it came out back in ‘85. Great album. Still like it quite a bit.
I wasn’t opposed when Mann turned up on HYF but I did think, “What the hell is she doing here?” :lol:

I recently started exploring some Ultravox because Neil specifically cited them as a band that caught his attention and drove how he started to approach rhythm (especially electronic) in the early 80's.

A simple word.

A band I love.  They are my friends for the Bay Area.

I met the ex drummer of this band and the guitar player in line at Tower overnight to get our Rush tickets on the "Presto" Tour.  Death Angel guitarist was also in a sleeping bag in line too.  We were drinking beer and listening to "Operation Mindcrime" and the new Eric Johnson cassette Ah Music Com.  Epic times.

Yes J2112,  I will never get out of the 80's.


The guys in line with me for Rush tickets had their own little prog band in the Bay Area.

ENCHANT!

They are in the studio right now recording a new album.

It's so funny.

Timing is everything.

You may not believe in a God, but man my God is music.

I was just listening to the first Enchant album today on my commute to work.

"Blueprint Of The World."

You Analog Kids should find it or download the album.

Paul Craddick is on the drums.  One of my best friends and he is AWESOME!!!  I love him.

Doug Ott on guitar and vocals!  I love him too!!


I am blessed JB.

This excerpt below is part of Teamrock's 2016 interview with FM founder Cameron Hawkins.

Recommended Listening

Black Noise (1977)

FM’s impressive debut album set the standard against which the others are judged. Their unique format – Cameron Hawkins’ spacey synths, expressive bass and smooth vocals; Martin Deller’s busy percussion; and the enigmatic Nash The Slash on violin, electric mandolin and rawer vocal – is unusual but interesting. Sci-fi themes abound in the dark title track, Journey’s upbeat groove and the aggressive instrumental Slaughter In Robot Village, but it was the US radio hit Phasors On Stun that would best marry their echoey instrumentation and crazy rhythms with a pop sensibility, one that would endure throughout the following decades.

City Of Fear (1980)

By album number four – their third with future kd Lang/Heart/Geddy Lee producer Ben Mink on violin and electric mandolin – they’d dropped space rock for a sparser, angrier sound based around Mink’s distorted mandolin. Produced by electronic pioneer Larry Fast (Synergy/Peter Gabriel), the stark soundscapes of Krakow, the catchy Power and the soaring Surface To Air are among the highlights. The mandolin could almost be a guitar on the rocking Riding The Thunder, while Nobody At All is the closest they ever got to a heartfelt ballad, with Mink’s beautiful violin showing exactly why he would soon guest on Rush’s Losing It.

Transformation (2015)

Organic but no less eclectic, Cameron Hawkins and the new four-piece line-up delivered a different sound for the band. The multi-layered opener Brave New Worlds, the commercial Reboot, Re-awaken and orchestral Safe And Sound all add quality to the legacy, along with other quirky songs that make up a bold but also pleasingly familiar release. Ed Bernard’s viola adds a melancholy tone to a complex record that proves to be one of their most dramatic statements.

FM RULES!

I wrote a thread about WIRELESS years ago.  The first Wireless album kicks fuckking RUSH ASS!  Produced by Geddy.

It's beautifully remastered on Rock Candy Records.

It's a masterpiece.

The second album is solid too.

Yer call.


WIRELESS RULES!

I really hate to admit it.

WET DREAM THEATER  

I remember seeing DT at The Stone in SF on the Images Tour.

I met all the guys.

The coolest dude was James.

We started to chat about influences and I said, like stating the obvious, you guys are very Rush influenced.

James looked at me and laughed.  He said to me, "of course we love Rush and I'm from Toronto too!"  He then signed the back of my ticket..

I still have that tucked away in my Japanese cd pressing of Images.

I LOVED DT.

RUSH was my gateway drug to the eternal exploration of progressive rock in general.

I was hooked like a redneck addicted to crystal meth.

Music is my drug of choice.


I love the ongoing shite on this forum about me going way back to 2006.

You normal boring folk assuming I was always on some sort of drug.

Hilarious.

I know I need to "LET IT GO."

DEF LEPPARD and LOUDNESS

I love Camel, but didn't know there was a Rush connection there.

I do know that Mikael from Opeth is a huge Camel fan, though

I fell in love with Camel because of Opeth.For somebody(me)who loved everything prog in the 70s i cannot understand how Camel slipped past me.Check out Aussie mid 70s proggers Sebastion Hardie ,a mix of Camel and Focus(who upstaged them when they toured here in the 70s)
