New York-based George Elliott has been making independent/experimental rock since the mid-'70s, when he was a member of the obscure early new wave band Come On. After his time in Come On ended in 1980, he was in Container and the ten-piece orchestra Strange Party, as well as working with Klaus Nomi as a songwriter and musician. He did a good deal of recording on his own as a solo artist, venturing into minimally produced folk-rock-psychedelic musings on Music for Girls. Forehead Movies, by contrast, was a double CD of almost 70 short instrumental pieces, utilizing several-dozen instruments and falling in the ground between experimental wordless rock and soundtrack music, though usually remaining very melodically accessible.
