80-F  (Epic  EPC 84545)  1980  UK *

 

 

 

 

 

Another top-drawer professional platter of infectious new—wave power pop technoid emissions full of creative pop synthesizer action. ‘Love Will Always Make You Cry’ (which should have been a hit) and the spacey fast-driving ‘Starflight’ stand among their finest songs. Also includes the high-powered instrumental ‘1980-F’. The remaining seven tracks do not appear on the US compilation. Not much Christian content, although you can find a few hints in ‘Can You Face It?’. Most intriguing song title: ‘Who’s Gonna Love You (When You’re Old And Fat And Ugly)‘?’. Pete King replaces Iva Twydell on the drums. Released only in the UK. Followed by 1982’s Batteries Not Included, also a UK-only release.    (The Archivist, 4th edition by Ken Scott).
