( AKA Moose )
"...the rhythm king himself, Paul Bultitude pounding out the big beats for dancemaster
Page, the ayatollah of cool!"-CHRIS HUNT
Sebs departure after the" Tour of Confusion" although a blow, allowed the band to bring in Moose as a replacement in time for the Business As Usual album in 1981. Not entirely a stranger to the band, Bultitude had not only played with Dennis Smith in powerpop band Advertising, but as Dennis's cousin he had often travelled the country with Secret Affair. Re-uniting the cousins and bringing Bultitude's wide musical nous and drumming style to the band would have a significant musical impact in the run up to the third album.
