Synth stuff from Scottish band, Secession and a new one on me. Obviously influenced by New Order the band line-up included; the late Peter Thompson (vocals and keys) Charlie Kelly, (Synths and percussion) Carole Branston (vocals and keys) and James Seenan (bass and went on to be in The Vaselines with Kelly) They released 8 singles and 1 album over the span of their career from 1983 to 1987.
This release was aimed at the dancefloor with mixes by Steve Peck on the production by New York engineer, Lew Hahn. It reminds me very much of The Beloved although it was released ages before in 1987.
