From 1984 and some bright indie pop from the trio of Sam Jones (vocalist and former member of Reggae band Brimstone), Joe Dworniak (bassist – session musician withJohn Foxx and The Style Council) and Duncan Bridgeman (Gardening At Moonlight , 1 Giant Leap) Originally, Duncan & Joe were a duo called Shake Shake! & released two singles in 1981 & 1982 respectively. In 1982, the trio was awarded “Most Promising Newcomers” by British magazine Blues & Soul. All self penned and self produced this was a pleasant fusion of styles and they got a record deal with Virgin.
Perfect for a Summer’s day, this was off the second album, “Shake” featuring session drummer Tony Beard and Danny Cummings on the percussion. Shame it fades out unexpectedly towards the end. The B-sides is a pleasant dub mix with plenty of pan beating and more synths, keeping most of the vocals too.
The other I – Level twelve is here from the same album.
