I understand that their 2nd proper LP “Recurring Dream” had a legit CD issue in England in 2005.  That’s not the one I would’ve issued on CD!  “Vocabulary”, their ’83 A&M UK debut album is amazing.  Look for the “American People” 12” to get the song “New Industry”!  If you have a 7” or 12” for “Animal Song” you already have one of their best songs: “Someone’s Changing”.

Despite the number of releases here, I don’t think very many people ever heard this band, which is a real shame.  Obligatory link to the more recent future – singer / keyboardist of Europeans, Steve Hogarth was (is?) a member of Marillion.

When I get my million dollars, “Vocabulary” is one of the albums I would chase down and license a CD of it (adding “New Industry” and maybe “Typical” from the live album – together with some 12” variants).

If any member of this band ever reads this – get in touch!

    EUROPEANS… one of my favorite bands from the 80’s. You are correct, Steve is now the lead vocalist of Marillion. A step-down I think.
