Art house UK New Wave stuff from the mysterious Viva Lula, released in July 1983.
Uropa Lula were a British pop group, consisting of David Lloyd (vocals and guitar), Allan Dias (bass guitar), Pete Fromm (keyboards), Andrew Edge (drums/percussion), Chester Kamen (guitar), and Carol Isaacs (keyboards). The group were managed by Hilde Swendgaard. The group signed a recording contract with Arista Records in 1982. This was a name change by the group who had toured extensively and at the time were opening for Big Country and their final single.
Pop Funk with some very strange vocals from David Lloyd, a bit Mighty Wah! in places with plenty Overdubs. It features Pepsi (from the duo Pepsi And Shirley) on backing vocals
A great lost 80’s song, enjoy !
B-side “Surely There Must Be Some Mistake” is a Waltz time instrumental with taped samples and a drum machines.
