This band was supposed to call themselves Soft Heap and include drummer Pip Pyle, but though a tour was booked, he found himself otherwise engaged, and Dave Sheen was hired to accompany fellow Canterbury scenesters Alan Gowen, Hugh Hopper, and Elton Dean on a tour of Europe. Calling themselves Soft Head, they hoped to draw in those frustrated fans of Soft Machine and Gilgamesh…
God Fixation is the seventeenth studio album of the Christian rock band, Petra. It was released on April 21, 1998. Petra has gone through many stylistic periods in their long history, but the music on their latest offering, God Fixation, is among their best yet. The three new members, who toured with Petra for Petra Praise 2: We Need Jesus but had minimal studio influence on that project, are spreading their wings now, bringing the band's sound a new freshness.
God's Great Banana Skin is the twelfth studio album by Chris Rea, released in 1992. The album wasn't released in the USA, though some tracks later appeared on the US release of Rea's following album Espresso Logic. The song "Too Much Pride" was featured in the 1993 Erotic Thriller Cold Sweat.
This excellent album was released in 1972 on Atlantic Records and was the one and only release from a fusion band from Philadelphia. Mainly instrumental (with some vocal accents) Good God's record contains tightly arranged and very original dose of energeticjazz rock with some progressive and even hard rock inﬂuences. The songs showed the instrumental virtuosity and imaginative approach with strong guitar parts leading the way. The group did a fantastic job on Frank Zappa's ‘King Kong’ and John McLaughlin's ‘Dragon Song’, although other four compositions were no less memorable. Most probably it was the greatest 'forgotten' progressive-fussion album ever! Unfortunately, the band sunk without a trace.
Collection includes 2011 remastered reissue of all studio albums and EP by post-rock band God Is an Astronaut from the Ireland.
