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.
