Godley & Creme
Kevin Godley and Lol Creme left 10cc in 1976 to persue a solo career based on a guitar contaption they invented named The Gizmo which produced violin sounds on a guitar. The result of which was the debut triple LP Consequences which featured a play acted out by Peter Cook and sonic tomfooloery that can only be achieved by being holed up in a studio for 14 months. Obviously, Consequences was destroyed by the critics.
Their following records were a bit easier to digest but still featured bizzare sonic effects and baffling pop arrangements. They achieved a minor hit in the 80's with "Cry" accompanied by a groundbreaking video of morphing faces. Some of their material was reissued in the late 90's but you can usually find their records in budget bins, sad as it may be.
