JOY – Touch By Touch (12″)

Ah, the gentle opening bars of Euro-pop, something you’d be there on holiday in a bar and hear this and in an inebriated state would then sit in your brain hoping you would try to seek the track out when you return. From 1987,The original Austrian trio comprised of Andy Schweitzer, Freddy Jaklitsch and Manfred Temmel. This is classic synthpop mixed with Shadows guitar and accordian. The extended version starts off like something by Erasure.  The synths jangle all over the extended B-side, “Fire In The Night” with lots of singalong parts.
