Art Rock band that featured guitarist extarordinaire Bill Nelson. Good for the uninitiated especially Sunburst Finish in which Nelson explores his version of the future with pop songs with flashy guitar.

The music is not categorized as progressive in the style of Mellotron/keyboard symphonics, but is more within the realm of intelligent rock music comparable in spirit to Peter Hammill's solo material. For those unfamiliar with Be-Bop Deluxe, Modern Music or Sunburst Finish would probably be the best starting points.

Excellant guitar oriented rock with intelligent lyrics and mood shifts ranging from hard-edged to very subtle and passive.

Bill Nelson's mid-70's band, they produced a long string of albums that range from art-rock to mainstream pop, yet always very inventive, intelligent and generally progressive. The best of the bunch are probably Futurama, and Sunburst Finish, which feature plenty of excellent tunes and Nelson's trademark guitar pyrotechnics.
