White Door – Love Breakdown (US 12″)


More early 80’s UK synthpop (and new to me!!) Just the one album and a handful of singles from them 1983.They comprised of the Davies brothers (Harry and John) and Mac Austin who were all in a prog-rock band called Grace (from Stoke) at the start of the 80’s. Quintessential 80’s sound with synth bass (no stray guitars!) and sounding very, very much like The Human League, especially on the instrumental. Andy Richards (ex keyboard player with the Strawbs) produced it with a remix by Peter Napoliello.

Footnote – I have come across them before because I had the track “Windows” on tape! Just listened to it again…..ah memories! (I can hear the prog rock elements)

This will sure bring back a few memories.
