S*Express ‎– Nothing To Lose (12″)

From 1990 and the amazing Mark Moore, backed up by Sonique, who was to go on to have her own successful career as solo artist and DJ. An asterix , a hyphen or an apostrophe ? I don’t think the band knew how to break up the name so it wouldn’t be banned for being to risque.

Funky house with piano stabs and produced with Martin Gordon and James Reynolds . Superstar guests on b-vox were Sharon Blackwell, Naomi Osbourne, Lorna Rowe & Sylvia Tella.

B-sides include “My Laser” which sampled from John Carpenter movie “Dark Star”. Moore was very Sci-Fi obsessed, a solid groover. “Find Time To Be Yourself” featured “wah” guitar from Paul Gendler (who was in the 80’s teen bop band, Modern Romance) and is subtly funky.
