I saw them in '79 supporting XTC and was sufficiently impressed by them live to buy the 12" EP they had out at the time but not sufficiently impressed by that to buy the LP when it subsequently came out. Probably worth a punt if it's only a quid or so.

four years pass...

weird doing a search and finding you started a thread (you don't remember starting) 5 years ago.

i just picked up their self titled debut ep from 79 for a buck. produced by peter hammill and AMG compared them to Phil Manzanera's 801 & This Heat, kinda figured i had to have it. it's a lot heavier than i expected. kinda reminds me of crimson's "Red". not sure how much i love the vocals yet. sometimes reminds me of some deftones/afi emo/nu-metal stylings. i could see this being a big influence on bands like slint or big black.

Officers Roles and Responsibilities

Each of the officers in a Random Hold club has certain responsibilities to fulfill in supporting the club and its members. There are several officer positions within each Random Hold club both to spread the workload fairly and to expand the leadership opportunities for club members.

Filling an officer role does not mean that you are required to do the job alone. Being an officer simply means that you are responsible for ensuring that the job gets done. As an officer, you are allowed -- indeed, encouraged -- to ask other members of the club to help you fulfill your duties.

Note: Serving as a club officer for at least six months satisfies one of the requirements for Competent Leader recognition.

(Some club elect new officers every six months, while other clubs hold elections once a year. This usually depends on whether the club meets every week or every two weeks.)

Preparing to Be a Club Officer

One of the most important things to do in preparing for a club officer position is to attend one of the Club Officer Training sessions sponsored by the district. (In fact, attending these sessions is one of the goals for helping make your club a Distinguished Club.) Please make every effort to attend training so you can receive the support you need to better serve your club.

Just picked up their album Etceteraville in the dollar bin, based on Peter Hammill's name on the jacket and intriguingly post-punk album art.

Unlike most dollar bin purchases, this one is really growing on me. To my ears they sound like Alan Parson Project meets John Foxx-era Ultravox.
I'm surprised they're as obscure as they are, but it warms my heart to see they have their own ILX thread.
