Only picked this up yesterday from Lancaster, I had the 7″ single when it came out in 1983. Attracted by the DIY sleeve and the fact it could be synth pop. Bonus that this is a Hans Zimmer and unbeknownst at the time Anton Corbijn did the photograph. (I didn’t know about him at the time and how he would become an influential visualist)
Eddie & Sunshine were a bit of a cult act comprising of Eddie Maelov and Sunshine Patteson. Eddie (Colin Edward Francis) was an punk singer who was in Gloria Mundi with Patteson. They became a production duo before releasing stuff of their own.
To my ears now it sounds very cheesy now, with Do-Wap backing vocals and naive lyrics about paranoia,(Now where is my copy of “We Are Detectives” by the Thompson Twins) Kitsch Cabaret. B-side is , “Echo”, much more electronic and as weird as I remember it, not like the live video but more Vince Clarke in synth arrangement.
