Early British rock/alternative act that seems to have only released this and a split with Pete Ward. Intransit probably sounds like rock to many today, but this would have been more adult alternative when it was released. The keyboards at time almost give the music a Daniel Amos “Horrendous Disc” sound at times, especially on “Visions of Blue.” Before forming Intransit, Simon and Mags Law led Sea Stone, the band that helped launch Plankton Records. After this, they formed a new band called Fresh Claim that put out a lot more music than Intransit or Sea Stone put together.
