The Great Leap Forward


The Great Leap Forward is a band formed by former bIG fLAME member Alan Brown, when his previous band split up in 1987. Great Leap Forward was essentially a solo project, although various musicians were added for live performances. The sound was more melodic and danceable than his earlier band, still with overtly political lyrics. After three 12" EP's on Ron Johnson Records, that label's collapse led to a move to Communications Unique for debut album Don't Be Afraid Of Change, which largely comprised tracks from the three Ron Johnson singles.

A final 12" single (Heart and Soul) was followed by the LP compilation Season 87-88 and the CD compilation Great Leap Forward before Brown called it a day in early 1990. A mini-LP, Tolerance & Respect had been planned for a Spring 1990 release but was shelved. In 2007, Alan Brown has been recording new Great Leap Forward material, and has also joined Sarandon, playing bass guitar. From Wikipedia ----------------------------------------------------- The Great Leap Forward is an experimental noise band formed by Dominic Carrillo, a native of San Francisco, California. The band usually features many friends with reoccurring members such as Dominic's brother, Andrew Carrillo (bass), Adam Behan (guitar and vocals), and his girlfriend Julie Marie (vocals). The music often consits of random hand claps, drums, sayings, and sometimes recordings of his conversations on the phone.

Random objects often make up the music in the background. Dominic draws his influences from several bands, including TV on the Radio, Gregory and the Hawk, and Turbonegro. Dominic Carrillo is also known for his second band, a side project called 'Dom and Friends'. You can visit the Dom and Friends website at (myspace.com/domandfriends). Read more on Last.fm.
