Ian Bell (RIP 2016) – Vocalist, Alter Ego
Many years ago a group of lads got together and created a band. Who would have thought that from those humble beginnings the members of that band would end up programming computers, working in Insurance, busking, running a Karaoke thingy and joining the police (not the excellent 80’s pop trio I must add).
We didn’t think we’d end up here either. “It’s a shit business” as they say in Royston Vasey, but we had fun anyway.
In a fit of misplaced nostalgia (or maybe wine) I have placed some of our stuff here, to inspire others to go to university and get proper jobs.
So without further ado I present a very small example of the collected works of Alter Ego (and previously Prodigal Son). All works are copyrighted so don’t go selling them, or [insert fictional omnipotent being of choice here] forbid, copying them. You probably shouldn’t even listen to them but that’s your call.
Sadly singer Ian Bell passed away in 2016 and in tribute bass player Andy resolved to complete his quest to complete a video project that was abandoned after the tragic death of our friend & video-grapher Mark Wallbank.
Together with band members, family & friends of Mark & the band they came up with this great restoration & completion of a 1993 demo video. The lyrics of A New Messiah could have been written today about Donald Trump.
The music that plays over the end credits of that video is this progressive metal epic, Second Class
