British indie duo Eyeless In Gaza (named after an Aldous Huxley novel) was a favourite of mine in the early 80's, one of the many great bands on the Cherry Red label that was also home to Felt, The Monochrome Set, Everything But The Girl and others. To me Martyn Bates and Peter Becker hit their peak with the 1983 album Rust Red September. The music is strangely beautiful with a sound unlike anything else, minimalistic yet quite comprehensive at the same time, and featuring Bates's enchanting voice and the harmony vocal of Becker. "Changing Stations" is the album's wonderful opening track.
