880. hope for the heartbeat

Bill Nelson first got some notice via the ill-fated glam-art-prog-whatever outfit Be-Bop Deluxe for whom he sang and unleashed gobsmacking guitar wizardry. But come 1982’s The Love That Whirls (diary of a thinking heart), his fifth solo release, he’d ditched the guitar, gone all-in with keyboards, drum machines, tape loops, the future in general. And hopeful it was in an artful sort of way.
