Random 80's Wednesday
Screen 3 - City of Souls (7" Single, 1983)
Amazulu - Cairo (7" Single, 1983)
Robert Holmes - Angel In The House (7" Single, 1989)
The Hostages - Going Up In The World (7" Single, 1984)
Ranch - Put Your Love In Me (7" Single, 1985)
Here are some of the singles I recently bought through eBay. I can also post the B-Sides if anyone is interested.
Robert Holmes was the lead singer of Red Guitars for a time. If anyone has a copy of his 1989 album The Age of Swing, I'd like to hear it.
I don't know anything about The Hostages, I believe this was their only release. The artwork was by Mark Wilkinson, who also worked with Marillion and Fish.
Likewise, I could not find any other releases by Ranch. A good song, though.
"Cairo" is a classic downtempo reggae groove and was later included on the self-titled Amazulu album, although it was much less poppy than their big hits.
Screen 3 is a Norwich band who released several hard to find singles.
