Scarlet Fantastic ‎– Plug Me In + Re-ups (Red 12″)

Ex-Swans Way members Maggie De Monde and Rick Phylip-Jones released this debut back in 1987. Produced mixed by Jones with Daize Washbourn and Karen Hewitt (Aussie engineer who worked with S,A,W) give the mixes a light, synthpop touch over De Monde’s distinct vocals and occasional rawk guitar in amongst the synths.

The “Amsterdam Connection” is slightly different mix, more of a dub.

Landscape’s John Waters was behind the arrangement on the piano ballad-like “French Connection” with added accordion. Getting back to their Swans Way roots.
