Red Noise

Bill Nelson formed Red Noise having become restless as a guitar hero and leader of the band Be-Bop Deluxe. After a string of successful albums and singles, this change of style was a difficult change for both fans and record label alike. As a result, his record label Harvest dropped Nelson and this commenced his solo career which has seen him produced over 150 albums.

In this interview I discuss Bill Nelson’s Red Noise album and one of its tracks with Steve Peer, who performed on the Red Noise live shows. The lyrics on the album are inspired by science fiction and are a joy in themselves. Although the album was dismissed by some audiences in 1979, it has gained critical acclaim as being ahead of its time.
