Brand X

Brand X were a British jazz-rock fusion outfit formed by Genesis drummer Phil Collins and Atomic Rooster guitarist John Goodsall as a side project from their regular groups. Their initial lineup also included keyboardist Robin Lumley and bassist Percy Jones (the Liverpool Scene, the Scaffold). Brand X's debut album, Unorthodox Behaviour, was released in 1976; a live album, Livestock, and the studio effort Moroccan Roll followed in 1977. Collins left the group to concentrate on Genesis, and for 1978's Masques, he was replaced by Al Di Meola drummer Chuck Burgi, as well as additional keyboardist Peter Robinson, who had played with Stanley Clarke. Three further albums -- 1979's Product, 1980's Do They Hurt?, and 1982's Is There Anything About? -- followed before the group disbanded. In the mid-'90s, Lumley, Goodsall, and Jones reunited, issuing several live collections in the years to follow. ~ Steve Huey

Went to see them at least twice at 444 Battery St. in SF. Some of the most awesome and memorable concerts I've ever been to.

Me and my friends used to play this track over and over again. Nowadays I have many copies of this album.

This is a cooler side project than his early solo stuff but as a drummer phil Collins is theMAN

It doesn't say DiMeola was a member. Reading comprehensio n is sorely lacking in some quarters....

Exactly flfx. People like his pop stuff 'cause that's all they can understand. So what if he wanted to make $. He's a genius, a great drummer and Brand X kicks butt and let's him express himself. I suppose Al DiMeola, who replaced John Goodsall, is a lousy guitar player for joining Brand X. Phil is said to have nerve damage and can't play drums anymore, I'm going through the same thing, good thing he has a great voice to rely on.

Sorry that Phil disappointed most of you. Too bad he didn't do what YOU wanted him to do, rather than what HE wanted huh?. Phil chose the direction he wanted his music to go and if you didn't follow that was ok by him. Who the hell are you to judge where an artist takes his music? Don't like it? Don't go there. I'm not a fan of his pop stuff myself and prefer the early Genesis and Brand X days, but have always respected his choice to make his own path. Get over it and respect a true artist.

PHIL COLLINS probably wanted to live better by singing these popular tunes. he had the voice to deliver some hits. i prefer his early work with GENESIS BRAND X. PHIL WAS IS A gifted drummer however. just listen to WATCHER OF THE SKY SELLING ENGLAND BY THE POUND.

Nuclear Burn - Man that is awesome I thought Moroccan Roll was the top of their game. Collins sounds like Joel Rosenblatt on this one, or should I say Rosenblatt sounds like him?

Brand X is an absolutely superb example of the creative potential of fusion. Moroccan Roll stands out as my particular favorite album. Simply exquisite!

Unbelievable ! That is if what I just read in the bio is true. I saw Phil Collins with Genesis in the early 70s on the Selling England by the Pound tour and saw Al Di Meola open for Renaissance in the mid 70s. I've heard Brand X before but never knew their background. Very impressive.

Got into Brand X with the Moroccan Roll LP. One of those bands that were overlooked by the masses, but a great fusion outfit.

The "Marscape" album was a Robin Lumley (keyboards)/ J a c k Lancaster (ex-Blodwyn Pig) project that actually had all the original members of Brand X, recorded just after Unorthodox Behavior. An excellent concept piece, agreed that it is highly recommended for any Brand X fan.

Brand X is the best fusion ever!!! I saw these guys a few times in the day and they were simple awesome. Percy Jones put out a few albums with his group called "Tunnels" check it out... Some of these guys put out two concept albums back in 70's called Marscape and other was called Peter and the Wolf.. Highly recommend both. Percy's unique sound still stands

Impressive for someone who doesn't like Collins....f o u n d this through Atomic Rooster.

some of the best jazz fusion ever. they need to get back together and produce somemore of this incredible music and hit the road...

I had read previously that Phil Collins had planned to leave Genesis and join Brand X full time but that changed when Peter Gabriel left the band.
Collins did not play on the Masques album as noted but he is featured on
the last three albums before the band broke up. With the exception of the live albums and compilations released after the group broke up, I have all their material which includes "livestock."

"Phil Collins was so good with early Genesis and BrandX....wh a t the hell happened?"
Sadly, Collins discovered that he could make millions producing love songs and movie soundtracks with a fraction of the mental and musical effort. As one of the first comments below stated, recordings like this were in a period before Collins "sold his soul to the Commercial Music Devil."

This is of the strangest fusion bands that you will ever hear and we already know what an incredible drummer phil collins is - and john goodsall is a verygood guitarist - I remember hearing morocan roll around the time it came out- i was captivated - brand x excellent stuff.

I bought this album at a garage sale for 25 cents in the late 70's - a quarter well spent.

This is back when Phil Collins could really play drums, not just straight, thundering 4/4 time.

Also another similar artist: John McLaughlin in his Mahavishnu Orchestra phase.

what about Tony Williams Lifetime (early '70s)??

Everything from album design to titles to compositions to performance was X-tra well done. Each band member was a gifted musician -deep weaving cool nuance into flaming riffs. Back in '78 I could'nt believe someone booked them at a disco (Beginings, in Schaumberg, IL). I went and saw all the original members, X-cept w/ Kenwood Dennard on drums, live for $5! Most of the disco crowd went from WTF! to OMG!!

An amazing band of musicians. So tight. I had the pleasure of seeing the band in a small hall concert at Univ of Cincinnati in the late 70's. It was fourth of July and there were only about 30 people at the show so we were literally front row in a private session and they jammed for hours. To this day, the most gifteed group of musicians I've seen. To bad their work is so limited.

A friend in high school turned me onto the band's debut lp -- Unorthodox Behavior; that was back in the 70s. I've been a fan ever since. Almost got to see them in concert in Champaign, IL at a place called Panama Red's (or something like that) back in '77 or '78. My friend and I made the 3 hour drive and arrived to find out the date we'd been given was wrong and they had been in town the night before. Good times!
