Yesterday while out and about in the car on this England bank holiday, a song from this band came on the radio. They were a big name from the late 80’s and I must admit one of my favourites from the era. Hope you enjoy my little blast from the nearby past. Hope I have introduced a new sound to your ears.

I am always worried about being little boring with my music choice, so I have chosen a few of their most popular hits of the time. Eddi Reader was to become one of UK’s top female singers. After listening to them I hope you agree.
I would love to post more videos but I would not want to bore you. If, however you wish to hear more then on viewing these on Youtube then you will find many many more to which I am sure you would enjoy very much. Happy Listening.
