Dear Enemy – Computer One (US Promo 12″)

So more Aussie New Wave from Mike B and I’ve not a clue about them but it was nice to be introduced to an old/new band. So this included the band line up of vocalist Ron Martini, guitarists Chris Langford and Les Barker (ex-Benders), drummer Ian Morrison, Martin Fisher (keyboads) and Peter Leslie (bass) Produced by respected producer Peter McIan (Men At Work, Mr Mister) we do get that mid-80’s sound, electronic drums, memorable chorus and spiky guitars. (Just a great song)

  1. I remember this song from MTV. I have their album on cassette… More (not so catchy and memorable songs) in the same vein.

  2. Ah yes, what a blast of a track – now in constant rotation with me again :o) Hope your blog will expose its greatness to much more people – these songs need to be treasured and promoted every now and then.

  3. Such a strange time in the Australia / New Zealand music market … there was a spate of computer themed tracks and surprisingly, they were good. Space Invaders was the biggest hit because of it’s blatant use of the catchy game music, but this was the intellectuals song of choice.
