Topic: Obscure/forgotten 80's

In light of Charlies post of the Comsat Angels in WYLT it reminded me of this fucking belter from the 80's I imagine not people have heard of.

The Light - Contrasting Strangers

I used to trawl through bargain bins as a youth and would buy almost anything and every now and then a gem would emerge.

I have held this song dear since - it is unequivocally 80's in my opinion and has so much going on.  Acoustic guitars, synths, lush harmonies, deep booming vocal...er...oboes!

Anyway - anyone got anymore.

Apologies if this thread exists - I imagine it does.

Aim Low and miss...

We hammered this LP at school, 5th form special....

She’s the main man in the office in the city and she treats me like I’m just another lackey, but I can put a tennis racket up against my face and pretend that I am Kendo Nagasaki...
