At this time, he was also developing as a musician, drawing upon Duane Eddy as a primary guitar influence. Levon recorded and produced the album which appeared on Levon's own Holyground Records label in After that, Nelson appeared in a much more substantial role with Lightyears Away on Astral Navigations released in On one track, "Yesterday", written by Coombs, Levon recorded Nelson's lead guitars in an acid rock style, supporting Coombs' stylophone riff.
Nelson's Holyground recordings were released in February as Electrotype. Nelson replaced the original band members for Futurama in Nelson found the structure of a permanent band constricting. An instrumental on Drastic Plastic performed by Nelson acoustic guitar and Clark keyboards anticipated Nelson's later solo ambient work.
Other tracks on that album required Fox record drum parts for use as repeating loop backing tracks in the studio. Performing these songs live on the subsequent tour, Fox would physically play these repeating patterns on drums.
This sowed the seeds for later experimentation by Nelson. Playing the guitar over pre-recorded backing tracks would bear further fruit in later studio recordings, notably the Painting With Guitars series , and And We Fell Into A Dream In autumn , Nelson halted the Be-Bop Deluxe project, removed Tumahai and Fox from his immediate working band and replaced the name with the moniker Red Noise releasing the Sound-on-Sound album in February Harvest, who had insisted on naming it "Bill Nelson's Red Noise", refused to release the second Red Noise album Quit Dreaming And Get On The Beam which was largely recorded by Nelson with contributions on sax from his brother Ian rather than the more-obviously marketable five-piece band Harvest's execs had understandably expected.
It remained unreleased in record company limbo. Meanwhile, with his producer from Harvest John Leckie , Nelson did some production and, in Nelson's case, sessions keyboards work for the band Skids ,  whose guitarist Stuart Adamson was an admirer of Nelson's musicianship.
Nelson's manager Mark Rye negotiated with Harvest to buy back some of the unreleased songs for Nelson to release under his own name on his own label, Cocteau Records, which Nelson and Rye had set up.
The release contained bonus disc Sounding The Ritual Echo Atmospheres for Dreaming featuring experimental, ambient instrumentals which Nelson had recorded privately at his home. Nelson had already contributed music and released it under the title Das Kabinet on Cocteau to the same company's similar adaptation of Robert Wiene 's silent film classic The Cabinet of Dr.
In , he released the 4-CD box set Demonstrations of Affection. He was hired by English new wave artist Gary Numan to produce his album Warriors , with Numan saying that Bill Nelson was his "favourite guitar player, bar none. Nelson also contributed towards several tracks on David Sylvian 's Gone to Earth Nelson had bad luck with major record labels in the s. In the late s, Nelson signed to Enigma Records who went out of business, although they had just re-released his entire Cocteau catalogue.
As the decade ended, Nelson suffered a series of personal setbacks, including a divorce, tax problems and an acrimonious dispute with his manager over his back catalogue rights. In the case of one album, the unreleased Simplex , Nelson discovered his manager had been selling copies via mail order without Nelson's authorisation or knowledge; Nelson claimed he never received any royalties from these sales.
