Just watched an episode of TOTP from 1982 with Monsoon on, cracking song, Bill, am I right thinking you had some involvement?

My understanding is (without going to her CD's that I have) is that BN is on the original Monsoon CD.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Bill is credited as a guest musician playing Ebow guitars and electric guitar on the Monsoon album "Third Eye" which was released on Phonogram (Mobil) in 1983.

I loved (still love) that track. For me, a perfect pop single. Catchy, immediate, but inventive and with a twist.

Didn't realise Bill had a hand (or ebow) in it!

Didn't Bill produce the song.
Or I'm I miles off the mark there?

I suggest you check out Sheila's solo albums. The music is wonderful.

Don't know if this is accurate - from wikipedia:

Monsoon was an early to mid-1980s UK progressive rock trio that consisted of singer Sheila Chandra, record producer Steve Coe, and bass guitarist Martin Smith. Their song "Ever So Lonely" was a number 12 hit single in the UK Singles Chart in 1982.[1]

Midge Ure (Ultravox, Band Aid), directed the video for Monsoon's second single "Shakti", which went Top 40.

Monsoon's third single, "Tomorrow Never Knows" (a cover of The Beatles), featured guest appearances from Bill Nelson, Preston Heyman (Kate Bush), Dave Balfe (The Teardrop Explodes) and Merrick (Adam and the Ants).

Due to differences with their label, Phonogram, Monsoon dissolved in 1982. Sheila Chandra started a solo career, Steve Coe continued writing and producing her albums, as well as Martin Smith, but often under the name Ganges Orchestra.
