Just thought I´d re-post this album as I have just got it from the UK and I didn´t have the sleeve when I originally posted it. ( must be one of the worst sleeves ever! )
I have also done a new rip of the album

I remember buying the classic single Sorry Sorry because the sleeve looked like a new romantic band.I was not disappointed and then I found their other single, Close Up ,which I also loved.

Then I found the album by mistake in a bargain bin.What a find,I played this to death.Great songs which more should of been singles.
Regular Sex would have made a fab single as would the very catchy O,O,O,O,O.
I dont think there is a song on the album I don’t like and it´s great to hear this again.

A few interesting facts about the band from Colin Ross

“The band were formed in Stirling,Scotland circa 1979. Went on to play support gigs with Simple Minds & The Skids etc., They finally signed a deal with Safari records and released their self titled album. The band did various radio sessions and notably Radio 1 where Sorry Sorry received extensive air play and got to No5 in the UK Independent Charts.

The album also attracted attention oversees. The band by then, were playing to large audiences but sadly split in 1982.”

    I saw them live many times, mostly in the Bungalow n Paisley. I worked with their manager in the local record shop. Regular Sex was the stand out and should have been the single.

    I saw them live before they signed to Safari. I worked with their then manager in a record shop in a Paisley. They played the Bungalow bar fairly regularly. Regular Sex was the stand out and should have been the single. They were great live
