Scott Alexander (10)

Scott Alexander recorded 'Sad Songs' after he quit American Music Club. having become disenchanted with the dynamics of the band and wanting to focus on worth that he saw as more modern. He began to record some solo electronic music influenced by contemporary artists like Brian Eno, OMD, Suicide, DAF, Soft Cell and New Order only tinged with a psychedelic influence that resonated with bands like Spaceman 3 and The Jesus and Mary Chain.

In the 1980s there was a small community of electronic musicians in San Francisco but they mostly gravitated more to the art world than music world. Scott had friends in bands like Voice Farm, Factrix, Naut Human's Rhythm and Noise and Tim North with his HoverDrum project, and both of their work with Survival Research Laboratories soundscapes.

He never made another synth-pop recording, instead becoming more involved with the direction of art video music that abandoned the pop song structure and he moved from San Francisco to Germany in 1991.
