    WHO HAD REPLIED TO ME THAT I NEED TO

    DISCOVER A FRETLESS MONSTER NAMED PERCY

    JONES! GOOD GOD!, HE IS JUST THE CRAZINESS I

    HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR! I'VE PICKED UP MOST OF

    HIS SOLO/TUNNELS WORK, BUT IS THERE ANYONE

    WHO REALLY KNOWS BRAND X'S WORK AND CAN

    DIRECT ME AS TO THEIR MOST KICKIN' CDS? ALSO,

    DO THEY HAVE CDS WITHOUT VOCALS? (I'M WAY

    TOO PICKY ABOUT SINGERS!)

    Brand X is an instrumental band (for the most part), though there are some "subtle" vocals on just a very few of thier tunes ("Noddy Goes To Sweden" comes to mind). As far as what to get, I would recommend getting any and all of thier releases. One of my personal favorites is "Livestock", but eventually you should get all of them IMO.

    Hmm, I'm only familiar with Product but it's got at least one full-on song, "Don't make waves", with Phil singing. Cheesy but catchy.

    Phil Collins is a kick A$$ drummer. My two cents:)

    Perhaps you should have your "Caps Lock" key looked at.

    Brand X is a great band. I totally dig the tune "Nuclear Burn". Great band, scary good musicians... back before Phil decided that he'd be a better singer than drummer.

    Ok well, to be honest with you I haven't heard most of it for a while, mine's all on vinyl and I just don't use the turntable anymore, been meaning to replace my collection with CD's. But I still thought that most of it was instrumental. The only one I have on CD is "Livestock" and that's probably why I mentioned it as a fave.

    Also I wanted to note that on the early albums ("Unorthodox Behavior", "Morrocan Roll", "Livestock") Percy played a Fender Precision. On "Masques", "Product", "Do They Hurt?", & "Is There Anything About?" he played a Wal bass.
    I'd recommend all seven of those that I just mentioned, that whole period was thier heyday before the band started breaking up I think.
    This was what turned me onto getting my first fretless Wal in 1984 too BTW.
