COMBO AUDIO - ROMANTICIDE

Hello and welcome back... Rare track from U.S New Wave band 'Combo Audio'

Track released back in 1982 called Romanticide was a single only. It did show up on a compilation called 'Living in Oblivion - The 80s greatest hits'

Shame they didn't go further, they had a wicked sound.

SINITTA - SINITTA! (1987)

Hello and welcome back...Very rare album but one of my favs.

Self titled album from U.K singer 'Sinitta', released in 1987. Rare because this very hard to find. I had this album on cassette back around 1988 and only now have i found a copy of the original album. Some other albums are available but are re-recorded and sound crap.
This is the original 1987 album

Half the album was produced by SAW (Stock, Aitken & Waterman) sounding similar to early Kylie Minogue.

Singles from this album were Toy Boy, GTO, Cruising, Cross my Broken Heart, Feels Like the First Time and the smash hit 'So Macho'.

So Macho made it to #2 in the U.K music charts, Toy Boy was #4 (U.K)

SO MACHO



CRUISING (Love the Electronic Drums)



TOY BOY

Can 80s band 'Kajagoogoo' get back together after 30 years apart?
Will Limahl rejoin the band after all these years?

KAJAGOOGOO - TOO SHY

Hello and welcome back... From the 1983 album 'White Feathers' came this awesome track.

Too Shy was the 2nd track on the album (Track one in the U.S. & Canada), with 10 tracks in total.

2 things sets this song for me... First was the lead singer 'Limahl', that magic voice set the tone who would later go on to do the lead track in the movie soundtrack for 'Never Ending Story'.

Second thing that makes this song / album a totally Rad experience for me is the heavy use of the Electronic Drums (the sound that made the 80s).. its what i love about the 80s and the whole album is chock full of those Simmons drum sounds.

Sadly after this album, Limahl left the band.

On a good note, Kajagoogoo (including Limahl) are currently together and are touring around the U.K.
