PostScript CD/LP (Ominivore)
Throughout the 1980s, the California based Game Theory was one of the most original (and critically acclaimed) indie-rock bands. Their blend of '60s and '70s pop influences such as Todd Rundgren and Big Star coupled with a post-punk energy led to a string of diverse albums – nearly all produced by Mitch Easter of Let's Active. Circa 1989-90, the band was rejuvenated with leader Scott Miller being joined by the legendary Michael Quercio from The Three O'Clock (who had recently broken up). Other interesting line-up changes included longtime Game Theory drummer Gil Ray moving over to guitar and keyboards, while Miller's former Alternate Learning bandmate (the original template of Game Theory) Jozef Becker, formerly of True West and Thin White Rope, joined as the drummer. Jozef is the brother of Game Theory's original keyboardist, Nan Becker. Across The Barrier Of Sound: PostScript compiles the final recordings from this line-up and features commercially unissued tracks (one previously included on a fan club-only release).
