AUDIO: Be-Bop Deluxe's Bill Nelson (1978)

Ian Ravendale, Rock's Backpages audio, 6 February 1978

From his school band the Cosmonauts through to latest Be Bop Deluxe album Drastic Plastic, Nelson tells the whole story: teen bands; conversion to Pentecostal Christianity; forming the band, signing to EMI and recording debut Axe Victim; changing the band's line-up, and record producers... not forgetting his perpetual self-doubt.
