kerlmann's current selection is:
Endless Waiting Game
by Red Beat
@mloup's current choice (https://www.godsjukebox.com/mloup/howard-jones-new-song/) reminded me of this rare offering from the little-known "Red Beat" - an English new wave band comprising the three younger brothers of Howard Jones (Martin, Roy and Paul), plus Majid Ahmed on bass.

According to the excellent http://www.wycombegigs.co.uk website, they started performing well before Howard, although he did make one solitary appearance on stage with them. This high energy Buzzcock-y track has a hint of prog rock about the vocal production, which perhaps isn't surprising as Roy Jones (brother #3) had been in a prog-rock band prior to Red Beat.

Another small piece of stitch-work in rock's incredibly rich tapestry.


1979 - United Kingdom - Track #2 from the LP of the same name.
