Breathe – Hands To Heaven (12″)

From 1987 and a debut for this blog, I bring you Breathe!!! (Anyone remember the band Hurts ?) A boy band that played their own instruments and wrote their own stuff, comprising of David Glasper, (Vocals) Michael Delahunty, (Bass) Ian Spice (Drums) and Marcus Lillington (Guitar) plus a load of synths and an uncredited saxophone player.A big old smoochy ballad, reminds me of “It Used To Be My Playground” by Madonna. Produced by Bob Sargeant and mixed by Chris Porter it did really well in America and reached number 4 in the UK, it completely passed me back in the day! The Extended version is a different take for those who know the single mix and the B-side is a funky instrumental called “Life And Times.”

  1. I’ve contended that this is the lost Spandau Ballet album after “Parade.” There are those who don’t like “Parade” and I think it’s a fine pop album, it’s what came after it that was pretty awful. I bought this album when it came out and the first thing I thought was that these guys were eating the Spands lunch.

  2. Hi, can you repost the single please, it seems that doesnt exist anymore on zippyshare 😦 thanks in advance
