Thompson Twins – We Are Detectives (12″)

Is there anybody out there???Image

From having regulars to Billy-No-Mates within a month. Ho hum ! A bit of return to my roots with this great piece of 12″ loveliness, prestine production from Alex Sadkin in the year of our Lord 1983. The B-side does it for me with the bouncy bass giving it the Twins signature toon and sang by Joe. Crazy sounds.

It be here……
