A re-release from 1988 of Climie Fisher’s debut single from 1986.(Got that?) Climie Fisher comprised of Rob Fisher (R.I.P.)(Keyboards) and Simon Climie (Vocals) and first came to my attention with “Rise To The Occasion”. Purveyors of light synthpop, I always see them as a prototype Savage Garden, it’s that sort of musical territory. Produced by Steve Lillywhite and featuring Kirsty McColl on backing vocals. The band are joined by some great session musicians; Pino Paladino on bass, Session drummer David Palmer, (Ex-Clock DVA, ABC, YMO) Neil Taylor (session guitarist with Tears For Fears and Robbie Williams current guitarist!) and Louis Jardim striking a few pots and pans!
An epic 12″ (I’m guessing remixed by Phil Harding, PWL- although he’s not credited) builds and builds in good old 80’s fashion and is nearly 9 minutes long, less is more ? Backed by “Far Across The Water” which is a good track, veering towards synth folk with Nik Kershaw sprinkles!
