Player [1] - Game Over


Space Invaders/We're All Players/Under Control/My Babe Is A Cool Player/Fire/Space Suite/Red On The Bottom Line/Microprocessor/Play Me/Game Over



 Player 1 was the brainchild of producers Russell Dunlop and Bruce Brown the two released a single about the game Space Invaders called "Space Invaders" in 1980 it reached #3 nationally and stayed in the charts for 5 months they then released the album "Game Over".
 The album in parts reminds me of Pink Floyd and most of the tracks are Synth. based and typically 80's sounding but there are a couple of tracks on here that almost rock out "We're All Players" and "Fire".


 Russell Dunlop - is a legendary Australian drummer and record producer. His experience spans 30 years and includes performing with Renee Geyer, Doug Parkinson, Kevin Borich, Georgie Fame.
 As a record producer, Russell produced for Kevin Johnson, Mental as Anything and Kevin Borich, having 10 no.1 hits and earning 13 gold and platinum records.

  1. Thanks RAM. Never really had much time for the novelty single, but based on your album review I'm gonna give this one a spin.
    Opps, here they come! Gotta go...
