Nick Beggs takes over lead vocals and give his Chapman Stick a workout on this 1984 synth-funk track. Limahl had left by then so they dropped the “Goo-Goo” (eventually) and the trio of Nick Beggs (Bass, vocals) Steve Askew (guitar) and Stuart Neal (Keyboards) forged ahead with their “signature” sound; on here helped by the backing vocals of David Grant (Lynx)
Steve Thompson and Michael Barbiero provide the remix on the US 12″ release. Funk and technology in a perfect blend. Layers and layers of percussion nearly drown out the dub mix.

The UK 12″ release had only the extended version, single mix and the experimental instrumental, “The Pump Rooms Of Bath”. Produced with Colin Thurston it proved that Limahl was not the most important ingredient.
