The Police – King Of Pain (12″)

kingypolice

From 1984 and a late Police track from their “Synchronicity” album. (their last official single from their last album) Co-produced by Hugh Padgham and is about pain and separation, hence the “black spot on the sun.” Moody photo’s by Anton Corbijn and a generally moody and weird rhythm, this is the sound of a band in their maturity. B-side, “Tea In Sahara” a live version of the album track, drifts along and just proves what a powerful and accomplished 3 piece these guys were.  The 12″ is exactly the same timing as the 7″ (so why pay extra at the time? AAArgh!)
