Wilding/Bonus biography

Wilding-Bonus was short lived jazz fusion project, founded by Danny Wilding (guitar) and Pete Bonus (flute). Other band's musicians all were well-known on progressive scene : Phil Collins (drums), John Goodsall (guitars, bass), Robin Lumley(keyboards) were Brand-X members, whenever Bayeté (keyb.) played in Automatic Man, Michael Shrieve (dr.) - with Santana in Woodstock, percussionist Rebop Kwaku Baah was member of Traffic and Can both.

Band recorded just one album in Island Studios, London in 1978, and then disappeared. Album was released on LP by Visa Records in USA ( picture-disc version existed as well), and for a first time re-released on CD in 1993 ( by Ozone Records, US). Very rare and almost forgotten release.

Review by Aussie-Byrd-Brother
Special Collaborator Rock Progressivo Italiano Team

4 stars Wilding-Bonus refers to flautist Danny Wilding and guitarist Pete Bonus, the duo teaming up for their obscure one-off `Pleasure Signals' in 1978. A sleek jazz-fusion instrumental rocker that mostly favours tightly composed and punchier shorter pieces, it also boasts contributions from various members of Brand X in John Goodsall, Phil Collins and Robin Lumley, as well as other musicians associated with a diverse range of acts such as Can, Automatic Man, Traffic, Yes' Jon Anderson, Atomic Rooster, the Santana band and even players from the fondly remembered 1975 `Peter and the Wolf' concept album.

The guitars of infectious opener `Race for Space' dash between light jangling grooves and spacey shimmers that weave through horn blasts, exotic percussion, spiralling flute trills and tickles of Hammond organ that instantly calls to mind the early Santana albums, and `G. Storm' adds some driving guitar bite to the twirling flute sprints with an unexpected tropical/reggae-flecked break in the middle. `Odyssey' is a breezy theme with the most low-key of groovy bass, `Earth Hymn' is a softly melancholic piano/flute reflection that reveals a triumphant reprising theme with light symphonic bursts, and `Rampage' opens with whirring spacey synths before roaring to fiery life with scorching guitar wailing and thick punching bass in the finale.

Side two's brisk and funky `Theme From Alma' and `Son of Alma' present two interpretations of the one piece that sounds like...let's say `Charlies Angels in Space'?! The first crams in some surprisingly busy playing with nice bubbling synths and dreamy electric piano runs, then the band slow and strip it down for a more mellow take but still with peppy spots of ravishing flourishes. Melting electronics and twitching guitars throughout `Initiation Into the Nagual' are twisted into a strident horn-pumped funky strut, and `Ranchtown Tango' is a sprightly closer of softly whimsical dancing flute and almost countrified guitar licks that might remind some of the more cheerfully fun and foot-tapping moments off Caravan's `For Girls who Grow Plump in the Night'!

Some listeners may find this one all a bit too clean and polite, and it's not exactly the most ground- breaking or exploratory of fusion albums (nor is it quite as sexy as the cheeky cover art might suggest!), but if you'd like to hear a jazz-rock album full of sharp playing, impeccably executed instrumental moments, plenty of variety and one that never descends into drawn out pissing-contest solo showboating, then `Pleasure Signals' has much to recommend about it. Easy to return to, always highly melodic and slickly produced, this is a little forgotten curio from a bunch of great musicians that deserves to have a bit more attention brought back its way.

Four stars.

4 stars Wilding &Bonus two excellent musicians who not quite made it in jazz fusion realm in late '70's but with all downs and few ups from their short career they manage to release a great one single album in 1978 named Pleasure signals. Danny Wilding who is responsable for guitar arrangements and Pete Bonus for the flute parts gathered around them some stellar musicians from jazz rock/fusion zone in this album. I think this album is better known for the guests featuring here then for Wilding and Bonus. Anyway, 3 members from Brand X - Phil Collins (drums), John Goodsall (guitars, bass), Robin Lumley(keyboards) + Bayet' from Automatic Man and among others percutionist Rebop Kwaku Baah who was memeber in Can or Traffic, so some top notch musicins here, each one with his contribution in developing the sound of this album, but above all Pete Bonus is the one who gives the shining moments on this album, at least for my ears. No one can deny the beautiful and very snooth arrangements on flute from here, the perfect example is almost Tullian aproach on G. Storm, what an excellent piece where the flute simply shine not else, the rest of the pieces are more then ok, instrumental jazz fusion very well played and composed. I really liked what I've heared on this unknown and forgotten album from late '70's. 4 stars this time, not really groundbreaking moments, but the passages are so enjoyble that is hard for me not to give a high rating. Very intelligent I might say cover art, great.

Review by gr8dane

4 stars First,thank you Progathon for giving this one my attention. After reading your review I knew this was something I could like.This a just a quickie attention getter (review),and if you like the music that Progathon describes in relation to this album, you will be doing very well with this one.Canterbury light I would say,but with Canterbury heavies as guests.I do think that you can use an Isotope comparison here. After reading the review I searched waysidemusic where I found this gem for $4 in the last chance/sale section.At that price I dare say I got myself a 5 star purchase here. But what we got here is a between 3 stars and 4,but close to 4. If you like Phil Collins,John Goodsall,John Giblin in your music,head this way. So if you have $4 to spare,go crazy.

Review by Progathon

4 stars This is a fantasic album !!

Wilding / Bonus is a project from flute player Danny Wilding and guitarist Pete Bonus. It features many familiar names including Phil Collins on a few tracks ( not singing, its a purely instrumental album ) John Giblin, Robin Lumley, John Goodsall so you can imagine there is some quality playing going At times it sounds remarkably like Brand X which is no suprise really given who is playing but there is a nice mix of moods and styles, from full on 70's funk/fusion madness to really peaceful mellow sections.

A sadly overlooked album that deserves much more exposure !!!

Thanks to snobb for the artist addition.
