Interesting @Halfway there, the verse structure is a lot like Golden Hours, and the McGeoch guitar refrain sounds a lot like St. Elmo's Fire. Maybe he owned only one album then.

for a giddy moment I thought you meant John Parr’s “St Elmo’s Fire”

I voted INto the Light because it is a perfect example of why JOhn McGeogh was a fucking god.

Was pondering why John McGeogh isn't more of a name, as he's so well loved and influential just below the surface of things. The Banshees at this point were like Can or Birthday Party - each person in these bands was so good at what they were doing and it was so distinctive no single contribution outshines the others.

Another Green World; The Idiot; Country Life; Diamond Dogs; Funhouse; and Trans Europe Express

don't know if you know 'through the looking glass' at all, but siouxsie covers 'the passenger', 'sea breezes' and 'hall of mirrors', so you score 1 out of 3 for identifying the correct roxy, iggy and kraftwerk albums. sorry, but i reckon that's a fail

I agree and I don't even know how his last name is pronounced

always guessed it was mc-KEE-oh but I don't really know

Does anybody know?

Howard Devoto pronounces it mc-GEE-och in a recent interview.

Soft "g" sound

Eastwood Guitars now do a McGeoch tribute model if anyone's interested in that sort of thing:

Get yourself a couple of MXR Flangers too

BTW, McGeoch is using a Gizmotron on his guitar in "Into the Light"
