After The Fire

After the Fire was originally formed in England in 1974 by keyboard player Peter Banks. This lineup disbanded a few years later, upon which point Banks re-formed the band with guitarist Andy Piercy, bass player Nick Battle, and drummer Ivor Twiddell. The new lineup played the London music scene and eventually became a favorite at the Marquee on London's Wardour Street. In 1978, the band cut their first album, Signs of Change, on their own Rapid label. Their musical style at the time sounded like early Genesis and Greenslade. After increasing popularity, the band signed to CBS to record their second album, Laser Love, which marked a change in direction influenced by the recent emergence of new wave. Battle left and was replaced by guitarist John Russell, who was previously in Narnia with Banks. Banks changed his name to "Memory" Banks to avoid confusion with the ex-Yes guitarist with the same name, while Piercy switched to bass. The single "One Rule for You," produced by Rupert Hine, went U.K. Top 40. The band's third album, 80F, was less successful. Twiddell was later replaced by Peter King (ex-Flys). 1981's Batteries Not Included was a more commercial effort, but success eluded the band until 1983 when they scored a U.S. Top Ten hit with "Der Kommissar." By this time only Piercy remained in the lineup. ~ Mike Edmunds

You are THE consummate dips**t bob, the only (sorry excuse for a human)(&) annoying person around here is you (as always!) so just piss off & go die or something for once would ya! Der Kommiser was a great song, it's too bad they couldn't make another that was at that level leaving them to be one hit wonders!

Sorry, but the only thing worse than most of the 80's music was the 90's music. Thumbs down for all poseurs and gimmick mongers who annoyed me in the 80's and who for some reason are now popping up on my Pandora station.

Love this song!! The lyrics, the beat, the voice...all perfectly pleasing to my ears. Miss this genre. Sick of filthy rap, music bordering on country passing for rock and I will always love the variety we got in the 80's. My favorite? Depeche Mode's, "Enjoy the Silence."

I hope Pandora can get their hands on the ATF catalog. They made such a huge contribution to British pop. And were one of the best kept secrets here in the USA if it were not for their big one-hit-wond e r cover of Der Kommisar. I love everything on Laser Love and 80-F. Wish I could hear more. If you need a digital source I believe there is a sort of Best Of CD called ATF that covers many of their best works...
