Private Lives – Break The Chains (12″)

privatelivescovMore Private Lives,  this time from 1983 and a more poppier commercial sound, think a young Johnny Hates Jazz via curiosity Killed The Cat (yes, that sort of style!) It’s all a bit too fluffy for me, very 80’s pop and a bit cliched, the 12″ mix doesn’t really do that much. adds a few effects but still plays it safe. The B-side, however, is much more synth pop with a nice bass line, blue eyed soul and new wave à la Fiction Factory.

Any new wave disciples out there? Here is a little Parish Church to pray in.
