Listen Now

Studio Album - July 1977

After the succes of Phil Manzanera's Diamond Head album and the 801 live shows, Phil put together most of the musicians from these projects along with additional help from 10CC's Godley & Creme and Tim Finn from Split Enz (and the eventually Crowded House) to work on this concept album over a period of 18 months. The album did not acheive much commercial success despite much critical acclaim in the music press.

Rude Awakening first appeared on Phil Manzanera's 1986 compilation album Gutarissimo. It was left over from the Listen Now album and was added to the 2000 CD re-issue as track 6. Blue Gray Uniform & Remote Control were demos which were never used on the original release of this album but the demos ended up as bonus tracks on the 2000 CD re-issue as track 11 & 12. Remote Control was re-recorded and ended up on Phil's 1978 album K-Scope

Flight 19 was released as a single in UK with Car Rhumba as it's b-side.
