Game Theory: Across The Barrier Of Sound: Postscript

1. Product Details

Vinyl LP pressing. 2020 archive release containing the final recordings from the last Game Theory line-up featuring Michael Quercio (The Three O'Clock). Throughout the 1980s, the California based Game Theory was one of the most original (and critically acclaimed) indie-rock bands. Their blend of '60s and '70s pop influences such as Todd Rundgren and Big Star coupled with a post-punk energy led to a string of diverse albums-nearly all produced by Mitch Easter of Let's Active. Hardcore Game Theory fans still talk about the band's final line-up that toured the West Coast, but never released an album. Circa 1989-90, the band was rejuvenated with leader Scott Miller being joined by the legendary Michael Quercio from The Three O'Clock (who had recently broken up). Other interesting line-up changes included longtime Game Theory drummer Gil Ray moving over to guitar and keyboards, while Scott Miller's former Alternate Learning bandmate (the original template of Game Theory) Jozef Becker, formerly of True West and Thin White Rope, joined as the drummer. Across The Barrier Of Sound: PostScript is the album that might have been at the time. There's a blend of home and studio and live recordings. Songs that many fans haven't heard unless they were lucky enough to catch a live show at the time-and some songs which reappeared in significantly different form on the debut album from Scott Miller and Jozef Becker's post-Game Theory band The Loud Family, Plants And Birds And Rocks And Things. Journey Across The Barrier Of Sound and enjoy this PostScript to a great band's career, but also as a wonderful album in it's own right.
