Brand X - X-Communication
This is my description text 1. It can support html.

Brand X are unfairly best known as Phil Collins’s side project when he wasn’t singing and playing drums for Genesis. This is of course true but they were so much more than that. The interplay between bassist Percy Jones and guitar player John Goodsall has seldom been surpassed, which is why the band have become synonymous with the concept of jazz fusion. 
After a 10 year hiatus, Brand X returned as a trio in 1992 with some hard hitting immensely groovy power fusion. The pared down format allows greater freedom for Jones's awesome bass technique and the use of Goodsall's midi guitar to trigger keyboards is an interesting departure. One of the highlights is the fabulous drumming of Frank Katz (recruited from Jones's own band Tunnels), who lends to the music a sense of timing that only Phil Collins had previously achieved some 15 years earlier. The is masterful music with (or is it just me?) is a somewhat sinister, aggressive underlying tone. Listen to Jones's solo track "Strangeness" on which the bassist showcases his full technical repertoire including scatching strings with the thumbnail, pulling strings off the fingerboard, and making the strings buzz and rattle against each other. You have to hear it to believe it.
