Endgames is a Scottish new wave band, who had some success in the 1980s with singles such as "First-Last-For Everything", "Waiting For Another Chance", and "Love Cares".
In 1980, singer David Rudden left Berlin Blondes and form Endgames in Glasgow. The line-up for the band's first released single, 1982's "We Feel Good (Our Future's Looking Fine)", consisted of David Rudden, Paul Wishart, David Murdoch and Douglas Muirden. Paul Wishart played the saxophone|saxophonist on Simple Minds 'Empires and Dance' tour in 1980. The band recorded two Peel sessions.
"We Feel Good" and the band's follow-up single, "First, Last, For Everything," were released in the same year, and found success in clubs in Europe and North America. First, Last, For Everything received significant airplay on Toronto alternative radio station CFNY-FM which still plays it occasionally on its retro shows. The success of the singles led to the release of their 1983 album. Building Beauty, which was produced by Colin Campsie and George McFarlane of The Quick.
The album spawned worldwide hit singles in "Waiting for Another Chance" and "Love Cares". "Waiting for Another Chance" was especially well received inGermany (No.21 in September 1983) and the band toured in Europe with Howard Jones, Eurythmics, and Depeche Mode. The single "Miracle in My Heart" included a B-side mix of the song "Ecstasy", was later sampled by Heavy D on the single and platinum album Nuttin' But Love and by Lil' Flip on Flippin.
When Endgames parted with Mercury in 1982, offers came flooding in from most of the major record companies, creating a bidding war which was won by Virgin and MCA in the USA. In 1985, Endgames released a second album, Natural, which included the single "Shouting Out for Love". Other members included Frankie Hepburn (guitar), Austin Ince (bass guitar), and Dave Allen (vocals). The band variously had recording/publishing contracts with EMI, MCA, Virgin and Mercury. - wikipedia

'CIRCUITOUS' new LP by AFRIKAN SCIENCES
// experimental | jazz | hip-hop | fusion | afro futuristic | electronic
Peerless rhythmist and sonic explorer Afrikan Sciences makes his PAN debut with ‘Circuitous,’ the third full-length, freeform offering from the New York-based artist.
At the nexus of Afrofuturism, science fiction, transcendental free jazz, and future hip hop, this new work from Eric Douglas Porter casts itself and its creator in a liminal zone most recognizably charted by astral traveler Sun Ra. ‘Circuitous’ follows from nearly a decade of releases for Deepblak —the Oakland-rooted imprint of frequent collaborator Aybee— and shares common blood with both the elevated consciousness of late ’80s club culture and contemporary West Coast beat scene.
Built around Porter’s signature polyrhythms and complex melodies, the unorthodox agility demonstrated throughout the album’s fourteen tracks reflect his long history of live, improvised sets combining multiple turntables, upright bass, and a command center of digital tablets and controllers. Each track maps the artist’s own movements, tracing paths of flight, highway trajectories through tunnels and over bridges, and rides through rough and gated neighborhoods. If familiar on the surface, deeper or repeated listenings to ‘Circuitous’ reveal the dynamic multiplicity embodied within.
‘Circuitous’ is a free and unbound body of work—one that defies easy classification yet translates fluidly across multiple environments—compiled over double LP in order to fully realize the scope of Afrikan Science’s sonic palette.
The album is mastered and cut by Rashad Becker at D&M, pressed on vinyl & CD, featuring artwork by Louis Reith & Bill Kouligas. - p-a-n.org // PRESS*PLAY>>
