Jona Lewie – Louise (We Get It Right) (10″)

I’m going to dedicate the next few posts to the synthesizer and my childhood obsession with it.

From 1981 and after having two massive hits with “Stop the Cavalry” and “You’ll Always Find Me In The Kitchen At Parties.” British eccentric and long time stalwart on Stiff Records, Jona Lewie was still using the synth to pen tunes that suited the weird and wacky. He obviously had a passion for Roxy Music and Ferry with his vocal delivery however this flopped but This was a massive hit in Australia! B-side is a more instrumental version of the A-side with wonky synths and chanted chorus, like as if Chas & Dave had bought a Moog! Both racks weighing in under 4 minutes, so much for overlong remixes, it was 1981!
