The Planet Wilson – Red Guitars Hallam Lewis and Lou Duffy-Howard joined by drummer Grant Ardis.
Quite clearly we feel it is imperative to Remain Inside. Here, we are in an imagined dystopian future where we can’t get back in. I Remain Outside is from The Planet Wilson’s second album Not Drowning But Waving, released on Records of Achievement 1989. We always hankered after a studio on a boat so we could sail around the sunnier climes of Europe while recording our next album.
The Planet Wilson were an indie rock band from Hull formed in 1985 by two former Red Guitars band members, Hallam Lewis (guitar and vocals) and Lou Duffy-Howard (bass). Described by Sounds’ David Cavanagh as ‘Crazy James Chance meets Holger Czukay’ they were signed to Virgin Records and released two albums in the late 1980s. They were joined by Grant Ardis and latterly for gigs by drummer Jonah Lacey-Hatton, sax and keyboard player James Gillespie, backing vocalist Alison Owen and percussionist Andrea Barbadori. In 1988 they released the album ‘In the Best of All Possible Worlds’ (produced by Steve Nye for Virgin Records) on which, according to Trouser Press, “…the three band members occasionally seem to be playing different songs”. In 1989 their second album ‘Not Drowning but Waving’ was released on Records of Achievement. With a cut out album sleeve raised from the fiery depths by Demon O’Connor, Trouser Press described the album as “uncommon pop music with claws”.
