|Brand X 2016|
For you youngsters who have no idea of exactly who or what Brand X is, the groundbreaking band was formed back in 1975 by guitarist John Goodsall, bassist Percy Jones, and drummer Kenwood Dennard, all of whom will be part of the Brand X reunion tour. Other members, like Phil Collins (Genesis) and Bill Bruford (Yes, King Crimson) came and went, but whatever the band’s line-up at the moment, Brand X kicked out an inspired and pioneering blend of jazz, progressive rock, and Ethnic music that influenced a generation of like-minded sonic trailblazers.
The core Brand X line-up of Goodsall, Jones, and Dennard will be joined on tour by keyboardist Chris Clark, formerly of the Who bassist John Entwistle’s solo band, along with percussionist Scott Weinberger. During the October and November 2016 legs of their upcoming tour, the reunited Brand X will perform material from their groundbreaking first three studio albums; beyond that, your guess is as good as mine. We’ll share Brand X tour dates as soon as they’re available, but in the meantime, get you some of these fine Brand X albums on CD:
Brand X's Unorthodox Behaviour
Brand X's Moroccan Roll
Brand X's Masque
Brand X's Livestock
Hope they make it to Southern California. I've had 2 opportunities to see them in San Francisco in 1978 but my final exams in graduate school was the problem.
Europe dates please, the Netherlands that is ;-)
