Red Noise (2)

Real Name:
Bill Nelson's Red Noise
Red Noise (better known as Bill Nelson's Red Noise) was Bill Nelson's follow-up to Be Bop Deluxe. The album Sound On Sound can be seen as a progression on the final Be Bop album Drastic Plastic. The band was created as a "new start and new direction" for Nelson, and was active throughout 1979, even performing a UK tour throughout March of that year, but by 1980 the band had disintegrated, marking the beginning of Bill Nelson's solo career.

It is worth noting that Bill's second solo album Quit Dreaming And Get On The Beam was to be Red Noise's second LP, however the band were dropped by EMI before it could be released and since EMI owned the tapes Bill was unable to release the album until 1981.
