My fave Be Bop Deluxe as it has Love In Flames, Superenigmatic and the masterpiece: Panic In The World. Bill Nelson holds a very special place in the world of guitar players. He is as unfamous as a guitar virtuoso can be. He revolutionized electronic music and changed his style multiple times over a 45 year career. He is British royalty in the rock & roll world. I like his guitar playing and his passionate vocal delivery on Drastic Plastic...a new wave pyramid of brilliance. His band was "The Juggernaught no-one-forgot" when audiences walked away in tatters after witnessing an onslaught of melody and rage. N
