Song of the day – 76: Heaven 17

It’s a great song. It’s also the reason why I bought Penthouse And Pavement from Rocking Horse the other day (also it was cheap, and on exchange credit). We had ourselves a total dance party when we got home: me, Daniel, Isaac. It’s amazing how thin these early 80s records sound now – there’s no middle at all.

If someone would care to send me a link to the album that B.E.F. made with all those guest vocalists, that would be sweet.

    Bought Penthouse And Pavement today, down Rocking Horse. Sure I saw some ridiculous claim in Uncut recently that this CD is currently worth over 100 quid. If so, get yr asses down to RH where they have a zillion at $9.99.

    Remember similar claims being made for debut singles by The Vines & Ultrasound, about 6 months after release. Think they're invented by hacks attempting to push up the value of their own promos.

    P&P; is such a great song… don't have the album, don't think because we got some kind of big dumb American release of it instead.
