Biography

Brian Canham is a talented Producer, Mix Engineer and Composer, as well as a successful Performer in his own right.

Brian achieved international success in all these roles with Australian pop group Pseudo Echo. The Pseuds achieved Top 10 Hit singles and albums reaching Gold and Platinum status, as well as producing the worldwide smash hit of ‘Funky Town’, receiving numerous national and international music awards.

Pseudo Echo are an Australian New Romantic band. Formed in 1982 by school friends Brian Canham (vocals, guitars, and keyboards) and Pierre Gigliotti (bass and keyboards), the band completed its lineup with Anthony Agiro (drums) and Tony Lugton (guitars and keyboards).

Their first album Autumnal Park was an Ultravox-influenced album that yielded the Australian singles “Listening” (produced by Peter Dawkins) , “Stranger in Me”, “Dancing Till Midnight”, and “Beat for You”. Their climb to success in the summer of 1984 was rapid, and they quickly became the second biggest band in Australia after INXS . “His Eyes”, a track from their first album, received exposure overseas as it was used in the movie Friday the 13th: A New Beginning.

There was a lineup change before their second album with Tony Lugton being replaced by James Leigh (real surname: Dingli) after a dispute between Lugton and Canham over money, and another lineup change during the making of the second album with Agiro being replaced by James’s brother Vince. Lugton went on to join synth rock band Talk That Walk.
