Johnny McElhone- Altered Images/Hipsway/Texas

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by The Mock Turtle Regulator, May 4, 2002.

  1. more 80's stuff;

    I've been downloading Altered Images tracks (in the UK they've been getting played in TV adverts)-

    on tracks like "I could be happy", "Happy birthday", the bass is doing a very Joy Division/New Order Peter Hook-type thing.

    "I could be happy" sounds like a cross between Siouxsie & the Banshees and Joy Division.

    anyone in the U.S. heard of them?

    apparently they're reforming this year.....

    Johnny McElhone went on to form Texas, which is MOR and not really my cup of tea.
    I've never heard the other band he was in, Hipsway, though.
