801

The longtime guitarist for legendary British art pop sophisticates Roxy Music, Phil Manzanera was born Philip Targett-Adams in London on January 31, 1951. The child of an English father and Colombian mother, he was raised in various spots, including Hawaii and Cuba, and while living in Venezuela began playing guitar at the age of eight. Profoundly influenced by both Latin music and rock & roll, while attending school at London's Dulwich College in 1966 Manzanera co-founded the psychedelic band Pooh and the Ostrich Feather, later rechristened Quiet Sun concurrent with a move toward a more avant-garde approach. When the group dissolved in 1972, Manzanera replaced guitarist Dave O'List in Roxy Music, joining in time to record their self-titled debut LP. A series of classic albums followed and upon completion of 1974's Country Life, Manzanera returned to the studio to record his first solo effort, the largely instrumental Diamond Head. Around that same time, he contributed to solo efforts from fellow Roxy Music alums Bryan Ferry (Another Time, Another Place) and Brian Eno (the groundbreaking Here Come the Warm Jets and Taking Tiger Mountain [By Strategy]), and even cut a Quiet Sun reunion LP, Mainstream.

Manzanera continued balancing his Roxy Music duties with solo projects and session dates, in 1975 producing the up-and-coming New Zealand group Split Enz; with Roxy Music entering a state of suspended animation a year later, he formed the short-lived 801 before touring with Ferry. The 801 aegis was revived for 1977's Listen Now!!; upon completing the follow-up, K-Scope, Manzanera joined the revived Roxy Music for Manifesto, their best-selling album in the U.S. He remained with the group through their last studio album, the 1982 masterpiece Avalon, and following their final tour he reunited with ex-Roxy saxophonist Andy Mackay as the Explorers, also recording a 1986 LP with onetime Asia frontman John Wetton. While 1990's Southern Cross featured extensive vocal contributions from onetime Split Enz member Tim Finn, Manzanera was largely absent from the studio during much of the decade to follow, primarily focusing on live performances (including appearances at the Guitar Legends and WOMAD festivals). In 1999, he issued the Latin-influenced Vozero, closing out the year by backing Ferry at the British Gas Millennium Concert, their first joint performance in 18 years. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

801 was monster. Phillips is awesome. Only with they had left us more material....
I agree with richm17. Hard to believe that this album is from the 70's. Light years ahead of its time.
Simon Phillips just burns on this album. This album has the hands down best version of Third Uncle ever recorded (yes, including the Bauhaus version).
Some of the best fusion jazz and the opening of the door to new wave, all in one package. Eno and Manzanera TEARING IT UP! Amazing that this came out over 35 years ago!
Pandora, I am so proud of you for having 801 in your rotation.
Just about every disc I ever burned has Baby's On Fire or Miss Shapiro on it. Even if it's a R&B disc, because I know that at some point in that 4 hours I'm going to want to hear one of those songs.
This album is probably in the top 5 of all time. What an era!! King Crimson, Yes, ELP, Gabriel Genesis, and lot more... This record and others in the genre helped me get over my extended withdrawel from the Beatles. Buy all Manzanera, Gabriel Genesis, King Crimson etc. albums you can afford. Danny Beard
I almost did a mural of the Listen Now album cover in the hallway of my dorm at Kent State back in the 70's. I did a Passport album cover instead. Great music.
Nice version of an already farout tune/ its the first time i have heard this version/ i was turned onto some phil manzanera in the early 80s by a friend of mine - we were tripping on acid/ I also heard the peter gabriel tune here comes the flood for the first time that night / robert fripps exposure album - what a trippy night that was!!!
simon phillips on drums
here ENO composed the hardest rocking tunes!
- is it me or if you shuffled your own collection of a few hundred disks it would be more interesting than pandora?? here it comes again - heard it before!
Pretty cool stuff. The bass player's a bit chatty, though.
I was turned on to 801 in '76 by a very good friend, Mark Freeland from Buffalo, N.Y.
R.I.P. Mark
O.k. I know it's been a couple of weeks, but here the info on 801 Live, straight from the album cover. The band members are: Phil Manzanera (guitar), Brian Eno (vocals/synt h e s i z e r / g u i t a r / t a p e s ) , Bill MacCormick (bass/vocals ) , Frnacis Monkman (Fender Rhodes/clavi n e t ) , Simon Phillips (drums/rhyth m box), & Lloyd Watson (slide guitar/vocal s ) .
The album contains 10 songs. Side 1: Lagrima ; T.N.K. (Tomorrow Never Knows); East Of Asteroid ; Rong Wro
I have this album (on vinyl)and it is great. There is an awesome arrangement of The Beatles "TNK (Tomorrow Never Knows)" and a cover of "You Really Got Me Now". Other members of the band include Brian Eno -- a couple of his compositions (including Miss Shapiro which leads into You Really Got Me) are also featured. Off the top of my head I cannot remember the other band members and the names of all the songs on the album. More info tomorrow.

This is about Manzanera, and barely mentions 801.
Please re-do this specifically about 801. Who was in it? Where did they play? How/where where the albums recorded?
Manzanera, probably one of the most under rated guitarists ... EVER
