The Associates – Take Me To Girl (12″)

From 1985 and the now solo Billy MacKenzie helped along by the production of Heaven 17’s Martyn Ware, Greg Walsh and Peter Henderson. This is funky and bombast and heartfelt all in one go. Taking a funky disco guitar link and sprinkling gold dust over the top on crystal keyboards. I think it’s better “Party Fears Two” and “Club Country” put together!! I like the way he did a classy, piano acoustic of the main track as “The Girl That Took Me” showcases THE voice and giving a much more melacholic edge to it. Extra B-side “Perhaps Perhaps” is more synthpop driven by a sequenced bass and really quite Heaven 17.
