Thompson Twins

  1. My girlfriend cleared her stuff out of the loft at her parents' house yesterday. In the boxes was a Thompson Twins cassette. She's playing it now. I haven't heard them since I was at school and it's transported me back about 25 years just like that! Anyone else remember them? Not a bad band, actually.

    I have the album on CD. Heard it for the first time in years a month or so ago. Pretty top stuff. :biggrin::biggrin:

    Was it called Into The Gap?

    Think I had that on cassette once upon a time.

    Ah, this has prompted another '80s trawl on YouTube! Love on your side, Sisters of Mercy, it's all there.

    Depeche Mode bring back some old memories too.

    I did the same on Friday night. Started off on Depeche Mode and went onto various other Vince Clark collaborations. He is a very talented pop songwriter.

    Thomson twins were rubbish though :biggrin:

    I had an '80s session at the gym this morning.

    Simple Minds - New Gold Dream
    Tears for Fears - The Hurting

    I was in that kind of mood today. :biggrin:
