Invincible was Burgess’ try to shed the Chameleons’ moody, ethereal electric guitar rock for the louder, grittier audio and pay out homage to his rock and roll & move heroes such as for example David Bowie and T. Rex. Produced with Yves Altana (electric guitar, keyboards) and Geoff Walker (acoustic drums), Invincible released their debut Compact disc, Venus, independently Gethsemene Information in 1999. Available mainly through the web, Venus was lauded by Chameleons supporters, but it didn’t acquire interest beyond Burgess’ group of fans. Nevertheless, the monitor “Harmful” topped the MP3 graphs. The songs had been mainly about sex and unrequited like, and Altana’s electric guitar work satisfied Burgess’ desire to have straightforward rock and roll & move. In 2000, rumours of Burgess re-forming the Chameleons begun to pass on via the web. When Burgess do reunite along with his previous group that calendar year, he departed Invincible, preferring to become with a music group with a recognised name and an improved chance at industrial achievement.
