Turn your speakers up to 11.

This is my favorite cut from one of my favorite bands of the late 70’s, Brand X.

I was lucky enough to catch them in concert in ’79 at either the Roxy or The Whiskey (went to many concerts back then, some smoking of illicit substances may have been involved). Though Robin Goodsall is an amazing guitarist, the member of the band I was most impressed with was Percy Jones, the bassist. He played as though he had ten fingers on each hand, just incredible. (See some of his subsequent work here with band “Tunnels.”)

And the drummer? That’s Phil Collins, before his musical career descended into the Seventh Circle of Pop Schlok in the 80’s. Guess a guy’s gotta eat (and have a country house or two), but most people aren’t aware that he has some serious chops as a percussionist.

Here’s a live version, unfortunately pretty crappy sound and video, but you get the idea.
