Swimming With Sharks ‎– No Longer Friends (12″)

From 1988 and released by the sisters Annette Humpe and Inga Humpe. This was their last release and was apparent massive in Ireland. We get a synth power ballad in the style of Pet Shop Boys via Tina Turner’s “Simply The Best” All produced by Swiss producer,  Armand Volker. The 12″ is mixed by the team of Jolley/Harris/Jolley giving it some beats and a Eurovision sheen. The more uptempo track “Back Into Your Heart” borrows a bit of the bassline of Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots Are Made For Walking.”

More sister action over here with the Humpe Humpe release “The 3 Of Us”

One response

  1. I love this song (and the Humpe & Humpe material) … I have discovered so much great music from Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Croatia … that you just know would have been MASSIVE, if it had been released in the US or UK!!!
