From 1983 and a bit of Punky New Wave (with synths) from The Call, from Santa Cruz, California.
The line-up on this album was; Guitar, Vocals – Tom Ferrier, Guitar, Vocals [Lead] – Michael Been, (the Late father of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club’s bass player Robert Levon Been) Bass – Greg Freeman, Drums, Percussion, Vocals – Scott Musick, Synthesizer, Cornet – Steve Huddleston and Synthesizer, Saxophone – Garth Hudson. (The Band)
Slightly political and slightly Talking Heads, with just the right amount of synths. Peter Gabriel liked the band so much that he called them the “future of American music” and asked them to open for him during his 1982/1983 “Plays Live” tour.
Highlights include “Destination” a bouncy synth and sax semi-instrumental, the Joy Division call-to-arms of “Turn A Blind Eye”, as well as the strident opening track.
