Starless appears in the highly acclaimed 2006 catalan movie Salvador (Puig Antich), not in the audio CD out of it, 'though. Were you aware of that? Me not.
It's a movie about the last generation who fought Franco's dictatorship, and an catalan anarchist executed in 1974. Very emotional round here.

I hope the movie will be screen in Italy too...
Starless + fight for freedom... It sounds very moving

It was in fact screened in Italy by April 2007: http://www.salvador-26annicontro.it/, Francesco.

A pity thad we didn't notice the inclusion of Starless. Maybe a DVD out of it will be released soon.

BTW and regarding starless, a few years back I saw perform in Barcelona The 21st Century Schizoid band, featuring ex crimson members (none of them JW era) and, surprisingly, they did very decent cover of this gem.

Actually,Ian McDonald and Mel Collins were on 'Red'--'Starless' in particular features them both playing together (one one note they cross over).
I sang it (Starless) with them,as guest vox,when they played at the Brook,in Southampton. It was the last time I saw Ian Wallace on this planet,and we had a lovely chat for an hour in the club before the show.The band was really good,but what would you expect from Collins,Wallace,Giles,McDonald and Jakko?
f.y.i.+ plug--- iCon plays The Brook in September.

Ooops ground swallow me. True, how embarrassing...

Yeah they sounded great, and I was afraid of Jakko's interpretation of the bible blaaaaaaaaack. He finally did it very good.

I met Ian Wallace in July 2006: he was a lovely man and a wonderful artist.
God bless him.
