Pulling out my old vinyl albums and I came across stuff I have not listened to in say 20 years.
I am on a Brand X fest at the moment. I love the track  Noddy Goes to Sweden written by Percy Jones off the Do They Hurt album.
Percy would have to be my all time favourite fretless bass player.

I love Brand X! PJ is indeed amazing. And, he uses a Wal bass, if I'm not mistake, with a number of similarities to Alembic.
 
I remember when they came to The Paradise in Boston and I blew it off, thinking it would be some lame punk band. Silly me.

Is there no love around for Brand X?s Product album? It was my first and I loved it!

I own the albums;
Unorthodox Behaviour
Moroccan Roll
Livestock
Product (I love it also Juan)and  
Do they Hurt
 
John Giblin plays upright bass on the Product album and also Do they Hurt. Another superb bassist.
These albums were available as import albums in Australia so the cost was high and availability was low.  
Such are the burdens of living in the colonies during the 70's and early 80's.
 
The thing that surprises me the most about the band is Phil Collins on drums.  
I earned a new respect for players that do the mainstream thing and also expulse expressive talents  
with their chosen instruments in a free creative environ.
 
I think I may drop the needle on an old Alphonso Johnson - Spellbound album I found. Iv'e got to get me a dose of Chapman Stick.
 
Hey I just realised the Phil Collins (Genesis) and Alphonso Johnson (Weather Report) dotted line connection.
 
Edwin what a pity you missed that gig, I would have given my eye teeth to see them performing live!
 
Wolf, I am glad you liked the track. Jazz fusion in the 70's was and still is a large influence on my playing.  
My mind says yes but my fingers have a different agenda.

A band I played back in the day covered Nuclear Burn and Disco Suicide. I saw Brand X at a long defunct concert club called B'Ginnings in the western suburbs if Chicago. At that time I think Kenwood Dennard was on drums as Phil was touring with Genesis but could be wrong.

Another Brand X lover here. 'April' from product was one of the first fretless solos I learnt. very tasteful. Giblin went on to provide some of the best bass lines on Kate Bush's work.
 
I'm currently listening to a huge mix of female vocalist stuff in preparation for an audition tomorrow.

A friend showed me Mike Gordon and Scott Murawski playing the Flaming Lips, and it's really well done.

Juan, I LOVE David Lindley and El Rayo-X. I used to see them whenever they would come through Seattle. That first record was big for me. So many great tunes on it, and such great playing!
