This is the only place where you'll find a legal recording of all four original members of U. The best thing about it is being able to hear three songs with slightly different arrangements from the yet-to-be-recorded "Danger Money" album being performed live with Bruford's drumming, and Holdsworth's guitar touches - neither performer was still with the band when that studio album was recorded, so this is special stuff. You know how a lot of prog acts tend to sound derivative of other prog acts? Well, U. A true supergoup from the 70's that lived up to its expectations, U. So a gem like this is hard to pass up. If you can find it, be sure to snatch it up! Second, people say this isn't as good as the debut, but I beg to differ. With no Holdsworth, the jazzy elements have left the group's texture, however they are left with the virtuosity of Eddie, and his extreme classical training.
From hard rock to punk, new wave, indie and Britpop, British bands have defined entire genres and influenced millions of rock fans over the years. The UK music scene has produced some of the world's most iconic bands and artists, whose work remains just as popular and revered to this day. It's incredibly rare for a band to have such an impact in such a short space of time. Joy Division were one of the most influential bands of the late s, despite the life of Ian Curtis being cut tragically short at the age of just Factory Records changed the face of British music and Joy Division were a huge part of its success.
