While I have been listening to and lovin' "LIARS" ....I recently came across a cd well worth discovering and listening to if you are into melodic but quirky pop.
It's called "SKYMEADOWS" by "THE PEARLFISHERS"... A British band...I believe.. and the brainchild of musician DAVID SCOTT.
He is obviously influenced by BEN FOLDS/PREFAB SPROUT and throw in a little BURT BACHARACH and of course...our hero...Todd.
In fact, track 2 is a catchy little number entitled "TODD IS GODD!" Worth checking out!
It's released on MARINA RECORDS and was released in Oct. 2003.
I am a HUGE Shaun Cassidy fan and I have a petition page to get his music (including WASP that Todd produced and wrote songs on) on CD. Would you mind putting my link up?The petition can be found at http://pub31.bravenet.com/guestbook/show.php?usernum=2588583687

There's an XTC page which mentions Todd (as producer of Skylarking) and makes some comments. You don't have to read the whole thing if you just want to see what they say about TR.
You may have noticed Todd working with a strange looking electronic gadget on one of the cover photos for NWO. That instrument is a theremin. Todd appears briefly in the film Theremin: An Electronic Odyssey.
Todd has worked with The Residents, specifically on Gingerbread Man and edited a video based on Freak Show.
For information on Chris Andersen, engineer for many of Todd's recordings and productions, check out the Nevessa Production page.
Todd's friendship with the late Laura Nyro goes way back to the "Runt" days as evidenced in the song "Baby Let's Swing." Laura fans would do well to check out a site devoted to her.
