Comments

After Hard Breakfast, Autumn starts experimenting with more song-like compositions. The band was able of buying some very new equiment, of which one of the first legendary Roland TR 808 ever made. They started building a little home studio and were now fully equippend for live performance without having to rent anything. They started writing more up-tempo tracks : "You Can Not Have It All" became a great live success. "Aparell I Ma" is named after a paiting by Salvador Dali.

In the same period, Autumn released a first single, for which Synthesize was composed. The B-side became a club-hit in 1982.

As time went on, tracks are even more upbeat. It shows how Autumn evolves from an experimental band to a more pop-oriented experiment. However, in these poppy songs, they continue to do the odd thing and refuse to become conventional.

"Synthesize" and "Night In June" were great singles, while "Lonely Day" was chosen by a team of video-artists to be used for an experimental videoclip. Very nice tracks indeed.
