From 1984 and the debut release from a Manchester based band. Really ? Terry Hall had moved on from The Specials and Fun Boy Three and teamed up with 2 ex-members of the Rockabilly combo Swinging Cats, Toby Lyons and Karl Shale. Not the light , dreamy pop of “Thinking Of You” but a more indie sounding along the lines of Echo & The Bunnymen. The Special Mix is more atmospheric starting off acoustic before those drums kick in. The 7″ is here too.
Excellent B-side, “Sorry” reappeared on the album “Virgins And Philistines” a year later as the last track. Morrissey would be proud of those lyrics !
