If it’s early 80’s you got to include some white boy funk. It’s needed as salt and vinegar crisps are at a 10th Birthday Party. Amazingly from Glasgow, Scotland the band members included drummer Brian McGee (Simple Minds),Frankie Hepburn (Visage spin off, Strange Cruise) Paul Wishart (Ex Skids and Fiction Factory) and Willie Gardner (Alex Harvey’s cousin and another Ex Skid). An embryonic Take That!
The main tracks has been given a heavy synthpop workover by Colin Campsie (who went on to work with Go West) and George McFarlane. With suitably wobbly synth and funky guitar licks.
Funky basslines and crystal glass synths chime all over the B-side, “Ready Or Not” much more groovy than the commercial “Love Cares.” A nice hidden gem!
