Albums of the Year: LONELY ROBOT
Lonely Robot released their excellent debut album ‘Please Come Home’ back in February on Inside Out. Lonely Robot is the brainchild of producer, guitarist and vocalist John Mitchell (Kino/It Bites/Frost*/Arena). He is backed by a rhythm section of Nick Beggs (Steve Hackett/Kajagoogoo) on bass and Craig Blundell on drums, with plenty of guests including Marillion’s Steve Hogarth, Nik Kershaw, Go West’s Peter Cox and Jem Godfrey (Frost*).
It is a cracking mix of melodic prog rock and some cracking pop rock like ‘Boy In The Radio‘ which features Peter Cox of Go West fame (always liked Go West, one of the better 80’s pop acts along with Talk, Talk and Tears For Fears).
