Unorthodox Behaviour

This was the very first Brand X album that was released the group had started out on Island Records but never got far, at some point

Phil Collins joined and Brand X became signed to Charisma Records, Phil fitted in with the group whilst Genesis his main source of employment was on a various breaks in their schedule, one has to ask how the hell Phil Collins had so much energy in those days.

A very interesting album showing Phil’s talents as a Drummer and also as a guy could work with musicians from a totally different background.
