Obscure ’83 release from Haircut 100 and posted here in a vain attempt to get the Sun to make an appearance. Produced by Bob Sargeant and engineered by Mark Dearnley it was off their second album “Paint And Paint” which was without Nick Heyward on vocals and guitar. Marc Fox, the percussionist had taken the roll, and was on board to see the band slowly sink. I don’t think losing your frontman was in the long term plans.
Along with Fox was Les Nemes (Bass), Graham Jones, (Guitars) Phil Smith (Sax and Brass arrangements) and Blair Cunningham.
Nothing wrong with the song , all the hooks are present and the arrangements pristine, chugging guitars and a smooth bassline.
“Fish In A Bowl” is a weird gem, scratching, funk guitar and Wham style vocals. It’s all about the slap bass of Les Nemes. Would have made a better A-side.
