WAX – Ball and Chain (US Promo 12″)

There is quite a lot of stuff on here by WAX (Graham Gouldman & Andrew Gold) it seems. Pioneers of the Fairlight C.M.I and all things modern coupled with an ear for good melody.

From 1985 and this was probably in reply to what Trevor Horn did a few years early. Their debut release given a proper twelve inch treatment by Phil Thornalley all the tricks in the book being used for a great extended version with plenty of quite heavy guitar and a very involving ending. The “Dis’Be Wacked” mix see’s an early remix by Justin Strauss with Murray Elias working their studio trickery.
