Landscape was an English band, best known for the 1981 hits “Einstein A Go-Go” and “Norman Bates.” Formed in 1974, it toured constantly during the mid-to-late-1970s, playing rock, punk, and jazz venues and releasing two instrumental EPs on its own Event Horizon label. The group began experimenting with computer-programmed music and electronic drums in the late 1970s and early 1980s, making records in the emerging genre of synthpop.
Landscape was composed of Richard James Burgess, Christopher Heaton, Andy Pask, Peter Thoms, and John Walters.
Burgess produced Shock and the first two albums by Spandau Ballet while still in Landscape. He went on to produce recordings by Five Star, King, Adam Ant, America, Colonel Abrams, Kim Wilde, and many others. He has written a book titled The Art of Record Production and co-designed the Simmons SDS-V, the first electronic drumset.
