IT biography
IT (pronounced it not I.T.) was formed in 1994 by Nick Jackson as a psychedelic and multi-media band based in both London, England and Sault Ste. Marie, Canada. The band released it first full-length album, "The Stranger Inside the Self" the same year. At this point, IT was purely Nick Jackson's vehicle as he was the only full member of the band. Guest musicians were used to provide additional instrumentation for the album. During IT's live shows promoting the album, the band began to use multi-media techniques, such as playing short films behind the band on stage. IT's second album, "Two Worlds" was released early the following year. For this album, the band was expanded to include accoustic guitarist James Johnson and bassist/guitarist Andy Jackson. The band also appeared on the James Whale TV Show, a show which promoted new bands.

After the release of their second album, Nick Jackson took some time to build his own studio called Spacehouse Studios between 1996 and 1998 and every subsequent IT album has been recorded there. The band ended their recording hiatus in 2002 with the release of the band's third album, a concept album titled "Over & Out". For "Over & Out" the band was joined by drummer Damian Kenley. During live promotion for this album, where the band toured both England and Canada, the band played the album in its entirety accompanied by projected visual montages created by Nick Jackson.

Near the end of the tour promoting "Over & Out", guitarist James Johnson left the band in order to get married and begin family life, and Andy Jackson left the band as well. They were replaced by Andy Rowberry, on lead guitar, and James Dunn on bass guitar. The addition of keyboardist Rob Archibald and drummer Alex Inglis rounded out the lineup for their new lineup. In 2008, IT signed to Sonic Vista Music and released their fourth album, "Departure" on that label in 2009. The release of the album combined the CD with a DVD, the bands first, which included two videos, a documentary and several live tracks. Several guests appeared on the album from several diverse genres, including bluegrass and heavy metal. A European tour to promote "Departure" is currently in the works.

Citing influences such as PINK FLOYD, PORCUPINE TREE, OPETH, THE CURE and NINE INCH NAILS, the band combines progressive rock along with several other influences, including country, heavy metal, hard rock and pop. The band currently consists of Nick Jack...

4 stars This is an album I've been enjoying quite a lot lately. The album presents a rather dark and spacey atmosphere, at times mellow, at times much more aggressive. In fact, there are lots of different styles present on the album, but the album's coherence does not suffer for its diversity of styles. One can detect a bit of Floyd in places, a bit of Porcupine Tree here and there, some alternative influences and maybe the occasional Crimson. But the influences do not dominate most of the album.

"God Is Dead" and "Killing Me" are both good pop songs. Tight and catchy, but without losing any intelligence for it. Both songs have been stuck in my head since I started listening to the album, but I haven't grown tired of hearing the songs after several listens. The title track, sandwiched between the two pop songs, is a more spacey affair, starting off with some very nice guitar and keyboard work, followed by a mellow vocal passage and then some heavy rhythm guitar to end the song. While not epic in length, it is one of the more epic sounding tracks on the album and could have easily been the middle part of a much more lengthy track. A very enjoyable 4 and a half minutes. "Car Crash" has some good acoustic rhythm guitar and spacey lead guitar and keyboard work.

"Fighting for Freedom" is my favorite song off the album and seems to be a fusion of country and metal. That may seem an unlikely combination but it works. "Burn", a song in two parts, shows Jackson at his most cynical. The first part of the song also has a bit of a country flavor thanks to a banjo and pedal steel guitar. The second part is a "photoshopped" Bush speech over some rather interesting instrumental work. It's really too bad they put the Bush speech over the top, because the instrumental work is quite nice and Bush's speaking over it is a bit distracting. Next up is "Safe", the only song on the album I consider truly derivative as it sounds like it could easily have been an outtake from In Absentia or Deadwing. However, what it lacks in originality, it makes up for in execution.

Next up is the two-part "Standback", a love song that in parts, especially the vocal parts during the verses, reminds me of the early 80's. Some more very good acoustic and lead guitar work here, especially the guitar solo in part 2 of the song. The final song on the album proper is "Disappear" another laid-back song that is a bit reminiscent of Floyd in parts.

My version comes with a bonus DVD which includes a video for "Killing Me" and a documentary/interview with the band. Also included is a rather short (under 30 minutes) but highly enjoyable live document. Would really like to see a full-length DVD in the future. Finally, the DVD contains three bonus tracks. The bonus tracks have a bit of a different feel than the album proper, possibly because the band's bassist in Canada (Craig West) wrote and sang two of the songs. On these three songs the Floyd influence is much more readily apparent, although I still wouldn't classify them as derivative. All three songs have a very spacey, sort of floating quality to them with the keyboards seeming more up-front in the mix and some very Gilmour-esque lead guitar in parts. Although for some reason West's voice reminds me a bit of Michael Stipe, which gives his songs a bit of an REM feel vocally. Of the three bonus tracks my favorite track is probably the final one "Taking on Sand".

This album gets a solid four stars from me. They may not always have the prog quotient cranked up to 10 here and sometimes the speeches over the instrumental parts can be distracting, but it's intelligent and enjoyable music that stands up to repeated listenings and has enough progginess to sink your teeth into. And many of the songs will be stuck in your head in no time. This comes highly recommended.

4 stars Departure is the fourth production from this UK-based outfit, following 15 years after their debut.

And it's quite an interesting venture too. The compositions all have strong mainstream-oriented tinges to them - soulful energetic female backing vocals as on opener God Is Dead, catchy sing-along choruses on many tracks and a variety in sound too: From laid-back mellow Pink Floyd inspired passages to raunchy hard rocking explorations with organ adding that vintage dimension that has such a strong appeal amongst many fans of rock.

The songs are also somewhat quirky, especially in structure. The longest track on the album, Fighting for Freedom, is a good example of that. For the first four minutes we're served a blend of country and blues with some gospel elements thrown in for good measure, while the closing two minutes takes us on a hard rock romp much more straight forward in nature - completely contrastig the opening passages and themes.

Still: The mainstream-oriented are pushed to the forefront on this album, while the art rock dimensions are more subtle; more often than not a case of them being found only if someone is looking for them.

It's a well made album, and one that deserves to get a fair deal of attention. Opening number God I Dead and third track Killing Me are my picks on this production, if you like those tunes this is an album that you'd probably want to get.

Review by tribeca

4 stars Sneaking in under the radar are accomplished neo prog rockers IT. Here's the thing though, Prog rock was always incredibly interesting and intelligent but a little self indulgent if not pretentious. IT seem to have taken this onboard because their gritty and satirical themes don't leave any room for myths or fantasy. In Burn (part 2) they have managed to cut and paste a Bush speech with hilarious (but tellingly accurate) results. The Lyrics are intelligent, challenging and occasionally darkly humorous. Did i mention the music? Ahem well, as a prog rock fan i've been waiting for something like this to come along for ages. There are singles on here that should be getting decent airplay - God Is Dead and the 1st single Killing Me are two examples of how to make a commercially viable 4 minute song while at the same time not departing (no pun intended) from the feel and flow of the album. There are shades of Porcupine Tree and Floyd (Departure) and i also drooled over the Hackettesque guitar on Burn (part 2). You'll want to come back to the bluesy 'Fighting for Freedom' and the sublime 'Disappear' but to single out two tracks would be unfair as there isn't a dud on here. This is their 4th album and one i sought out after falling in love with the previous offering 'Over & Out'. IT have a sound whcih fuses the classic melodies of prog rock's past with a passion and intensity usually only found in punk or metal bands. If you're getting tired of the new wave of electro pop and indie plagiarism then this album is a recommended purchase. It also comes with a DVD featuring live footage and a documentary.
Thanks to the doctor for the artist addition.
