Scarlet Fantastic ‎– Stay (12″)


After initial success with “No Memory.” The duo released their third single in 1988, a very polished bit of synth rock in the Power Ballad style (another category I’ve made up!) Maggie De Monde (voice) and Rick Phylip-Jones (instruments and production) were certainly ahead of their time on this , Goldfrapp anyone? Pre-dating Roxette too.

“Plug Me In” (their 2nd single) is included in all it’s crispy glory, given a PWL sheen. As well as a bit of synthy dance provided by Silver Bullett.

The problem of having a successful debut release and a rubbish record label who didn’t know how to promote them.
