The Other Ones – All The Love (12″)

New from me and to me. An Aussie-German band called The Other Ones and their debut release from 1986. Comprising of Australian-born siblings Alf Klimek (lead vocals), the twins Jayney Klimek (lead vocals) and Johnny Klimek. (bass guitar)They were joined by a German-born trio of Stephan Gottwald (keyboards), Andreas Schwarz-Ruszczynski (guitars who id a bit of work with Alphaville) and Uwe Hoffmann (drums).

The sound reminds me of Kissing The Pink (with a little bit of Blancmange), especially the chorus. Synths and rock guitars. Catchy

Not the best vinyl condition hence a couple of tracks I’ve “treated” – well, it’s only an introduction.

“Islands” is even more typical New Wave / Synth Pop and “It Makes It Higher” features the operatic vocals of Jayney. Three good tracks, I’ll look out for the album.

  1. I’ll have to check this out, but the US 12” of Holiday by them is on here back in November 2016. Yep, so much music, I know !!

  2. Fun little pop ditty from the 80’s. Obviously didn’t get any love from Countdown as I don’t recall hearing it. But it should have – it’s right up their alley.

  3. oh man, if you’re new to them, HOLIDAY was their huge summer hit and still a song I love!!! I’ll send you the album and 12″ when I have a minute
