From 1983 and off their debut album, “Pictures On A String” (that track is included in all it’s quirky goodness) Comateens were at the front of American New Wave and here seem in direct response to the invasion of Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet et al. This contains the much sought after “Dub Mix” with the classic 80’s bassline and Duran-like percussion and guitar. Mixes provided by John Luongo, of course. Liking the almost Parisian vocal delivery of Lyn Byrd.
