OK, a hifi thread must include the music too right?

Just re-aquainted myself with Be Bop Deluxe - last time I heard them it was via my secondary school RE teacher who used to play it in class.

Anyone ever noticed that their 'Futurama' album from 1975 has a fair few hooks and melodies, and general styles on it which appeared almost unchanged in Rush's far more commercially successful '2112' of the following year?

Now I'm as much of a Rush fan as any 60's child, but this is proper plagiarism! Maybe they were just fans... :shock:

And yes - know (after the fact!) that this has appeared as a new thread - DOH!!

Perhaps they both read The Fountainhead for inspiration?

It's more musical style than lyrical inspiration.
