A debut on here by English band, After The Fire, who were best known for a minor new wave hit “Der Kommissar” (a cover of a Falco track) in 1982. Originally emerging with the self financed album, “Signs Of Change” in 1978. Comprising of Pete Banks on keyboards, Andy Piercy on vocals and bass, (who went on to produce Nine Below Zero and T’Pau amongst others) Pete King on drums and John Russell on guitar. The line-up went through many changes. This track was released after “Der Kommissar” when Andy returned to the recording studio with John and various session musicians to a re-work the track after the band had officially split in December 82 at the Dominion Theatre. (the classic musical differences were sited.) It included re-recorded lead vocals and a real saxophone. The original was from the “Batteries Not Included” from 1981.
So here we have it recorded with John Eden (who worked with rock acts such as Status Quo and Graham Bonnet) it reminds me of early Scritti Politti via Thin Lizzy’s “Dancing in the Moonlight”
