An electro re-recording of the classic (originally from 1979) released in 1987. Given a dominant synth bassline and crunchy guitars. It was performed by original member,Spizz (Kenneth Spiers) and arranged by Nicky Tesco (The Members) It actually quite good and probably fits in with the EMF, Jesus Jones vibe of the early ’90’s.
Also included were the backing singers; Annie Shardlow, Karen Ware (from the band Kiss That) and Linzi Crisp (The Daughters Of God) Mike Ferda on extra guitar. Martin Ware did the video that I failed to find.
“Living Is Better…” is a slice of synthpop with a punk edge. Fierce bass synth and treated vocals, the chorus reminds me of Kissing The Pink. It is all about Safe Sex with a voice over again by Gary Martin.
