1979 saw The Enid move to Pye records. Having been given the biggest advance in the label's history, Godfrey made the smart move to purchase the recording equipment they needed to make their next album, Touch Me. A smart move, as the label collapsed shortly after. Touch Me continued the band's trajectory away from mainstream 'rock' music. Eschewing much of the 'hippies play the proms' sound of the previous two albums, and favouring more complex, densely layered piano and synthesizer compositions to tracks such as Gallivant and Albion Fair, the band sounded less like a rock band and more like accomplished classical musicians pushing the boundaries of the new electronic technology.
