THE ALIENS have history – between them they have been
behind some of the most enthralling british music of the last decade.
John Maclean and Robin Jones were members of the Beta Band. Gordon
Anderson was a founding Beta Band member who went on to record two
albums under the Lone Pigeon moniker. You could make parallels between
Anderson and Syd Barrett, both geniuses blighted by psychiatric
problems. The difference, of course, is that Anderson has come back –
albeit as an Alien.
