Games

Games There are several bands with this name.

1. Games, the culmination of a boyhood friendship between Dan Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) and Joel Ford (Tigercity), is steeped in "jazz fusion and midi funk from the 70s and 80s, and Games is kind of the ultimate manifestation of our geekery." Now known as Ford & Lopatin.

2. US band Games, formed and recorded their only LP "Stargazer" in 1977. It was a private press record; the album has never seen a proper release. With its dance beats, large use of synths, soft female vocals and long compositions that can be both simple pop melodies and rather intricate instrumental parts with unusual chord progressions, the album represents one of the finest examples of merging disco music with progressive rock. It is also possible to describe the band as prog rock version of ABBA. Line-up: Colleen Fitzpatrick (vocals), David Miller (bass), Stan Tatkin (drums, percussion), David Tatkin (keyboards), Donna (Marcus) Bond (background vocals).

3. "Games were a synthpop band from Wirral, Merseyside, formed in 1980 by Brendan Coyle (synthesizer), Colin Hughes and Steve Knott (vocals, guitar). The group were influenced by electronic bands of the time, like Roxy Music, Japan and Human League" - Steam M. (See also - the games wirral - on Last Fm.)
