Newcross biography
NEWCROSS was a short-lived outfit from the United States that released one EP in 1986, which, according to some, has a striking resemblance to the KING CRIMSON album Discipline. The drummer has recorded with the Motor Totemist Guild, Ken Ando, Cruel Frederick, and Loren Nerell; the guitarist later recorded with U-Totem. The bassist was only on this EP. Both the drummer and guitarist showed up, much later, as RAIN OF THOUGHT - A Realist's View of Hope (2000, CD only).

Newcross Eclectic Prog

Review by jayem

4 stars Some may suspect it was failed emulation of King Crimson 80 sound for the math sequences and guitar tones; singer Steven Cade reminds me of Belew. Even if it was true to me it was a happy failure ! The band has its own ways, colours, dynamics and identity. The non mainstream mixing choices have their own charm.

Newcross leaves me the feeling of stuff worked out in distress, and in every piece some transitions and structural elements as well as chord sequences i'd have gone for changes ; but it stands for ingredients I miss very much in music of nowadays. Tuvalu live is at times the closest I've listened to from later bands and I'd like to know more !

Thanks to epignosis for the artist addition.
