Cashflow - Leisure Process

The band Leisure Process never had much success, so its only claim to fame was the inclusion of band members Ross Middleton and Gary Barnacle, who have always been successful session artists.

'Cashflow' was one of their singles and when you listen to the two tracks on this single you can hear a great instrumental on the B-side. In my opinion, it's the best track the band have recorded.

My collection: 7" single no. 5297
Found: Record fair, Utrecht, April 12, 2012
Cost: 3 euro
Tracks: 'Cashflow' / 'The emigré'

Anxiety - Leisure Process

Leisure Process was a British New Wave duo formed in the early 1980s. They consisted of Ross Middleton, previously of post-punk Glasgow band Positive Noise, and session sax player Gary Barnacle. Four singles were released before their split.

'Anxiety' was their last single, released in 1983. Like all previous singles, it was released by Epic Records and produced by Martin Rushent.

A way you'll never be - Leisure Process

When you hear 'A way you'll never be', you may think it's a Level 42 track. And you wouldn't be too far from the truth: guest musicians on this track are Mark King and Phil Gould from Level 42. It didn't help the commercial appeal of this single: it sunk without a trace.

I bought 'Love cascade' last year and that track was good enough to make me curious about the rest of this band's output.

Cost: 0,5 euro
Tracks: 'A way you'll never be' / 'Rachel dreams'

Love cascade - Leisure Process

Gary Barnacle formed Leisure Process together with ex-Positive Noise singer Ross Middleton in 1982. During that time he was also working with Kim Wilde, with whom he also had a relationship. Their single 'Love cascade' was released on Epic records. It didn't make the charts anywhere, just like their three other singles, 'A way you'll never be', 'Anxiety' and 'Cashflow'.

Gary Barnacle continued doing session work after their brief career, working with amongst others Level 42, Public Image Ltd. and the Pet Shop Boys.

My collection: 7" single no. 3478
Found: Empire Records, Den Haag, December 11, 2008
Cost: 0,5 euro
Tracks: 'Love cascade' / 'The Fluke'
