The Aliens

Magic Man

The life of Gordon Armstrong – the sometime Lone Pigeon who quit The Beta Band under a cloud of psychiatric problems in ’97 – has often seemed more tragic than magic. So it’s great news that he’s reunited with former Beta bandmates John Maclean and Robin Jones. Sadly, the fruits of their labour – plodding, brass-tinged psych-pop – are hardly out of this world. Sorry Gord.
