    Nice number this taken from Andy Allo's 'Superconductor'

    Check out John Blackwell & Mike Scott - I can dig the NPG Sound.

    Andy Allo, with that set-up is beating the daylights out of the pretty man's third eye. Laughing

    This is the second video from that Guitar Sessions show.

    Frankly it's very insulting to say that this is a Live performance. Aside from the drums and Andy's voice not much else seems to be real.
    They are playing to track, which is kinda the norm in today's music, but the backing musicians are very talented and shouldn't need a crutch like this.

    Moreover, the worst part is the Sax players, The Saxophone as an instrument which requires the player's thumbs to grip it, to control it so that your fingers can play it. You simply can't swing it from side to side and get a spotless sound like the video would like us to believe.

    On a previous video they even had the Audacity to feature a Sax solo in which the performer was not required to move his fingers, much.
    I could go on and on about the Sax errors in the Video, but you get the point.

    Back to the point- I'm just not a big fan of Andy Allo, I've tried to see what the hype is about, but I don't get it ?!?
    Sure, she is really nice to look at and her previous album was nice in an Indie sort of way.
    But this one just seems middle of the road. The best way I could describe it is "Dead Pan Funk".

    3rdeyegirl> I think they make a nice backing band for PrInce but I'm not sure they make a great stand alone project.
    I do like them a bit better than Andy, maybe because I like the raw Rock & Roll approach found in Screwdriver.

    All and All, It's just nice to have some new music.
