Blast From The Past: Texas

It’s difficult to find a band that makes music like Texas did (does?). This Scottish band has been around since the late 1980s, and I’m happy to report that the quality of music has certainly not wavered.

The first Texas song I heard was Say What You Want, which was released almost a good decade after the band formed. I instantly loved it. The last Texas song I’ve heard was Getaway from their 2005 album Red Book. They’ve since gone on hiatus to pursue personal projects, and Sharleen Spiteri – she with the most beautiful voice ever – has released two solo albums since. It’s been too long since we’ve heard new Texas material and I, for one, can’t wait until they announce a new album.

Also, the video for In Demand features Alan Rickman. One thousand points to Slytherin!
