Bill Nelson, lead guitarist, songwriter and vocalist with Be Bop Deluxe is living testament to the power of dreams. For a brief period in the mid 70s this lad from Wakefield dared to dream of a future filled with rocket ships, surrealist films and deadly women.
Stylistically, the songs took elements from progressive rock, glam rock the band had flirted with make-up in the early days and hard guitar rock.
The single features an alto saxophone solo by Ian Nelson. Nelson shared producing credits with Leckie from Drastic Plastic onward. The first three Be-Bop Deluxe albums are all, in one way or another, named after guitars. The title track of the fourth album, Modern Music , was a ten-minute suite of songs inspired by the experience of the band's touring the US.
This was followed by the live album, Live! In The Air Age , recorded on the subsequent UK tour promoting Modern Music although no songs from that studio album appeared on the live one apart from a tantalizing snippet of the audience singing along to Down On Terminal Street.
That recording — now featuring the song in its entirety — and a number of other live Modern Music tracks finally surfaced on 's 5-CD set Futurist Manifesto. Eager to embrace the changing musical landscape, Nelson dissolved Be-Bop Deluxe. Immediately thereafter, Nelson formed a new band, Bill Nelson's Red Noise , retaining Andy Clark on keyboards, and adding his brother Ian on saxophone, in which capacity the latter had previously contributed to Ships in the Night.
