PETER GODWIN (Buy CDs by this artist)
Images of Heaven EP (Polydor) 1982
Correspondence (Polydor) 1983
Once a member of Duncan Browne's group Metro, Godwin turned into a synth-rocker and cut some pleasant tracks as a solo artist. Three of the EP tracks (singles in the UK) were produced by budding techno-sound designer Georg Kajanus (once of Sailor); the remaining entry by Midge Ure (still of Ultravox), whose then-bandmate, drummer Warren Cann, helps out. The one outstanding track is the title tune, which resembles Ultravox or Simple Minds.
Correspondence continues Godwin's association with Kajanus and imports a batch of keyboard players and guitarists for more well-crafted, occasionally memorable, adult synth-rock.[Ira Robbins]
