Scritti Politti – The First Boy In Town (Lovesick) (12″)

Business as usual for Green Gartside, keeping the same style and sounds as he had on the successful “Cupid Psyche 85” album, all samplers and bright synths. This bounces along with latin percussion,  almost with a retro feel for 1988. Mixed by Ray Bardani and with some backing vocals by B.J. Nelson and Fonzi Thornton, to supplement Green’s distinct vocals. More funk is induced on the B-side, “World Come Back To Life” but it is typical Scritti Politti and better than the A-side. David Gamson utilizing the Yamaha DX7 and Synclavier for full effect!
