Steve Strange passed away back in 2015 on the back of a resurgence in his band Visage. This single was off the 3rd Album, 1984’s “Beat Boy” and with it’s bass sequencer sounds very like Ultravox, but unfortunately being released at the end of the New Romantic period and the walk out of most of the band (Formula, Ure, Currie) it failed to make a dent in the charts. I’m liking the B-side ,”She’s A Machine”, more dancier and reflecting the influence of the Barnacle brothers on bass and saxophone. Andy Barnett does a very good impression of Midge Ure on guitar.
Not sure back then and even now what a Love Glove was/is ?
