From the 1988 album ‘Teddy Bear, Duke & Psycho’ and at a time Heaven 17 were struggling with popularity and this quite mediocre single didn’t help. The lyrics and the trying to catchy chorus with all the “naah naah’s”
The 12″ has a more than a nod to Moroder about it and improves it by getting more electronic.
The other 2 tracks are both from the album (well the CD version), “Work” and “Giving Up” and they were still using the tried and tested Linn Drum machine that immediately dates them as earlier than ’88. I think they were trying to sound too much like a band but as everyone knows it was mostly samplers. Tim Cansfield’s versatile guitar can be heard and they did (and still do) love their R & B.
There is a very interesting article about the album here, for all you tech heads
