Bronski Beat – Hit That Perfect Beat (Metropolitan Version) (12″)

This was the first release after Jimmy Sommerville had departed and formed The Communards with Richard Coles. It featured new vocalist John Jøn (John Foster) and theycontinued to release synth pop with a Hi-Energy tempo, bringing out the album “Truthdare Doubledare” in 1986.

The track got in the cult film “Letter To Brezhnev” and was a return to the original Bronski blueprint that Steve Bronski and Larry Steinbachek had written with hits like “Smalltown Boy” and “Why?”

A very different Mike Thorne interpretation of this track, certainly new to me and probably to my fellow synth heads. He makes it more cinematic with superb sweeping synths added and taking the robotic sequencers of the original out of the mix replacing it with a sampled slap bass. There is a lot of horn synths and it reminds me of some of the old Soft Cell stuff.

The B-sides includes a dub mix by Ian Levine which rattles, frantically around and the regular B- side “I Gave You Everything” starts like a Frankie Goes To Hollywood track and has a lot more sampled sounds on it with what appears real bass and guitar (probably sampled)
