Bourgeois Tagg ‎– The Perfect Life (US Promo 12″)

So rare it isn’t even on Discogs! Bourgeois Tagg despite the European name were from Sacramento, California, they released a couple of albums and had a couple of moderately successful singles. Line-up was Brent Bourgeois, (singer and keyboards) Larry Tagg, (bass guitar -so it wasn’t a cool European band name after all!) Lyle Workman, (guitarist who later did a bit of work with Frank Black) Michael Urbano (drummer extraordinaire) and Scott Moon (keyboards)

Produced and remixed with producer David J. Holman it certainly has elements of INXS via late Peter Gabriel with XTC style vocals…weird. The extended remix has more rockier guitar but it is funky leg shaker.
