A studio script screener gets on the bad side of a writer by not accepting his script. The writer is sending him threatening postcards. The screener tries to identify the writer in order to pay him off so he'll be left alone, and then in a case of mistaken identity gone awry, he accidentally gives the writer solid ammunition for blackmail. This plot is written on a backdrop of sleazy Hollywood deals and several subplots involving the politics of the industry.
Out of the Cradle is the third solo album by the American singer/songwriter Lindsey Buckingham. Released in 1992, it was Buckingham's first album after his much-publicised departure from Fleetwood Mac in 1987 (though Buckingham rejoined the band in the mid-1990s). The album reached #128 on the US Billboard 200 album chart, #51 on the UK Albums Chart, and #70 on the Canada Albums Chart. In Canada, three singles charted within the Top 60.
With ties to IQ and Marillion - keyboardist Martin Orford and bassist John Jowitt are also members of IQ, and Marillion's Steve Rothery produced early Jadis demos - Jadis emerged with More Than Meets the Eye in spring 1992. It's full of flowing yet complex melodies and plenty of light and shade. With nontraditional song structures ("Hiding In One Corner") and long instrumental epics ("Holding Your Breath"), the album fits the neoprog mold of the time. But More Than Meets the Eye is actually more exciting to listen to than some of its peers from the period, thanks in large part to guitarist and vocalist Gary Chandler's crisp and friendly singing.
