*Mark Murdock - Empire featuring Peter Banks*
In the wee hours I put this on my own personal FB wall and then afterwards figured what the hell, I'd share.
*MUST SEE TV (also works on computer screens...tablets...cell phones, etc...)*
See a band from Japan that Mark Murdock (drums) is in called 'Machine Messiah' do a hot cover of a Peter Banks Empire rocker called; Out Of Our Hands. The title is also the name of a Flash album (1973), but on that album there was never a title song offered. The song 'Out Of Our Hands', is found on another Peter Banks project called Empire. The song can be found on the bands first release; Empire featuring Peter Banks - Mark 1. The beginning number as a matter of fact. Note...On that album also is Genesis drummer Phil Collins. He's credited (read...plus help from Phil Collins) for drums, and backing vocals.
Look out for the new (posthumous) Peter Banks Empire release; The Mars Tapes. A cool archival project that I read about but have not heard YET. Looking forward! Will keep y'all posted.
Meanwhile, if interested in hearing what nowadays could be called, some cool ass retro-prog, then check out the link provided.
