Steven Wilson + Ford = GOD, Panic Underneath the Arches EP (1987-1993)

TFEP192

Retrieved from the archives, the grandiosely named God was the collaboration between Steven Wilson and singer and multi-instrumentalist Ford, who wrote and recorded on and off in the late 80’s and early 90’s, taking their cue from a shared love of the new wave pop of artists such as Talking Heads, Japan and Magazine. While Steven Wilson was soon on a path to having a long-term career with No-Man and Porcupine Tree, and Ford moved into the world of acting, God never got around to making a record or playing any shows at the time. But now three gems from their small but perfectly formed oeuvre (two from 1993 and one from their very first recording session in 1987) have been rescued and remastered and will be released by ToneFloat on Panic Underneath the Arches 12inch EP on September 27, in a strictly limited edition of 333 numbered copies on marbled vinyl and 666 numbered copies on black vinyl, available from the store.
