Hipsway ‎– The Broken Years (12″)


An early release from Scottish popsters, Hipsway and I’m still stuck in 1985. Produced by Gary Langan (Billy Idol, Nik Kershaw) it has all the 80’s hooks but is quite a short for an extended version, 3:43 really? There is some more Hipsway on here I think but everyone will remember them for the “Honeythief”

B-side “Forbidden” was produced with Kenny MacDonald (Texas, Gun)  with lots of 80’s crooning, Wet Wet Wet were probably taking copious notes from the school playground.

The Dub is quite fun with plenty of studio trickery from Langan probably learnt when he was with the Art Of Noise.
