The Other Ones – Holiday (US 12″)

New to me and sounding quite B-52’s in places.This release from 1987 was produced by Chris Neil, it’s certainly very catchy with lots of synth horns. The 12″ has a John “Tokes” Potoker mix which really improves the song.

  1. Absolutely LOVED this track when it came out here in Australia. I have the Cassette Single in a box somewhere. Been YEARS since I’ve heard this song. Thanks!!!! 🙂

  2. Ha, thanks to the nod … I didn’t forget about it, just bot slammed at work. I’m gonna send you both albums tomorrow .. It’s all cheesy B-52s like stuff but fun to listen to … before you mentioned it, I never knew they were half German (makes a lot of sense now). I always thought they were purely Australian. And I agree that the 12″ is version is the best … gives it more of a Midnight Oil feel, if Midnight Oil were a little bit more … happy?!

  3. I guess trying to download these 6 months after the re-up is like chasing one’s own tail. If you can I’d love a second (third?) chance to grab this 😉
