1. Twilight Zone
JOHNNY WARMAN had followed up the worldwide success of the album “Walking Into Mirrors” , a TOP 10 Hit single in Australia “Screaming Jets” with the album ”From The Jungle To The New Horizons” in 1982 but before that commercially successful period he had signed to RINGO RECORDS owned by one Richard Starkey aka RINGO STARR.
He here was in Ringo’s new studio at Titenhurst Park, Berkshire, England (the very same white room where John Lennon recorded “Imagine”) during 1978 recording “Hour Glass”. The world was his oyster.
Never before released on CD comes the album “Hour Glass” which has now been remastered, 8 bonus tracks never before released and comprehensive and informative sleeve notes from Johnny himself.

..this is a sterling piece of work that was criminally undervalued at the time, and deserves to be reappraised today...high quality songs to provide a sound with echoes of classic Small Faces and early 70s Pretty Things, Tubeway Army and a touch of Steve Harley...A true lost gem.
Record Collector (August 2005)
'Hour Glass' while retaining the short, sharp, almost Jam influenced post punk feel, is somewhat more eclectic than your average New Wave effort; yet is best appreciated in that context of the time.

...among the punkiest glam extravaganzas ever recorded...
Goldmine (July 2005)
This is an album that while of the late Seventies is a cut above most of them and any fan of the period would definitely enjoy this
