Yes I have.

Actually it's not just Geddy, it's all 3 members of Rush and Max Webster on the record.

I have the 7" single of this and also the "Universal Juveniles" CD that the Websters released in 1980.

Here's a little known fact for you.............

Rush and Max Webster recorded this song as a bonus and whichever band finished their album first would get this song on their album.

Max Webster released Universal Juveniles before Rush finished Moving Pictures......so Battlescar nearly made it onto Moving Pictures!!!!

I never heard that story. If it's true I'm glad Max won the race. While I like Battlescar it does not belong on Moving Pictures. That album is a masterpiece as is.

Yep i love Max Webster! such an amazing band!
another well known part of Max Webster history, the band actually broke up because of Rush. They were on the Anthem label but were never treated which as much respect as they felt they deserved. Anthem would continually put them aside for Rush priorities. Max Webster actually got the nickname of "Rush's little brother". So after so many years of this they decided to all go their seprate ways, being sick of their treatment. Well i wouldn't say Rush was the only cause for their brake up (artistic visions also played a role) but it was a contributing factor.

another little well known factoid Pye Dubois, the song writter for Max Webster also co-wrote Tom Sawyer with Neil Smile kinda cool. and apparently both still remain freinds today.

if you liked the song Battlescar some other Max Webster Songs you may like are:

1)Here Among the Cats
2)Hangover
3)Toronto Tontos (halarious song)
4)Paradise Skies
5)Lip Service

all great songs, and lead singer Kim Mitchel actually hosts his own show on a Toronto Classic Rock radio station, the station slips my mind now...but if you want the name i shall research it for ya Smile

I have the "Universal Juveniles" 1980 Vinyl.

Bought it when local radio started playing "battlescar."

The cover is cheesy, but the music isn't.

I also bought Crack The Sky's "White Music" vinyl the same day.

"Hot Razors in My Heart" was popular at that time.
