Thompson Twins – Lay Your Hands On Me (12″)

The Thompson Twins

Ahhhh! The Thompson Twins…..was it live or Memorex? Err,  I think it was Tom Bailey.

From 1984 and slightly over the peak and descending into the valley of mediocre this was da Twins at the height of their marketability. All The latest sounds and helped by long time cohort Alex Sadkin with more of a nod to Peter Gabriel in terms of subject matter. All Marimba’s and chimes and not the rocky and dreadful version by Nile Rodgers that appeared in the US. B-side is an instrumental version complete with sampled Car ignitions, still quirky.
