General comments

Primarily two ex Thompson Twins renaming themselves for the '90s. (For those who remember the 1980s lineup, the two in question are Tom Bailey and Alannah Currie.) (nkg@vcn.bc.ca)

Recordings include:


The Stone

Release info:

1993

Comments:

The Stone had one really great song on it ("Beautiful"), one tolerable one (can't remember its title), and a whole lot of wasted space. (lissener@wwa.com)

Ether

Release info:

1996

Comments:

It's pleasant enough to listen to, though not immensely challenging. Starts out with some nifty non-Western instrumentation, but then settles down into a low-key non-threatening somewhat ambient (tons of digital reverb anyway) pop mode. The sort of music I'll happily do dishes to, but I probably wouldn't sit down and actually *listen* intently to it. (nkg@vcn.bc.ca)
