Bananarama – Cheers Then (12″)

I forgotten early track from the girl trio.  From the 1982 debut album “Deep Sea Skiving” this has elements of New Wave and plenty of synths. Produced by Barry Blue I’d never heard of it and it is a bit different to the previous singles (No Fun Boy Three for a start) it stalled at Number 45 in the chart. Here with a nicely extended version by Steve Jolley Swain with added drums and synths. Love the video based on “The Sound Of Music.”

The B-side is extended too. With plenty of traffic sound effects, more uptempo than the A-side it takes a while for the vocals to kick in it has a feel of The Human League about, a decent Club mix.
