Bronski Beat – It Ain’t Necessarily So (12″)

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eQ0MlvjeyY

The difficult 3rd release and what a weird one to put out in a bossa nova style ! Sounding like Soft Cell and covering a George and Ira Gershwin classic that questioned the Bible? Lush production, piano and great multi-layered vocals for 1984 with Mike Thorne at the controls , this is the slightly longer version.
The B-sides are much more your synthpop Bronski Beat with the classic “Close To The Edge” and the long “Red Dance”, sounding a tad New Order in terms of electronic bass.

  1. I collected all 3 Bronski singles from the debut album, only truly loving Small Town Boy at that time. I have over the years learned to appreciate this single, but still can only take so much of Why (Jimmy was wailing throughout the song LOL!)
