Blimey you can hear where Spandau lifted the Paint Me Down, Chant sound from can't you.I had a 12" of theirs summer 82 (Plaything I think) - bass playere was called Sketch and wore a beret didn't he..
and didnt the singer go on and do summat with Red Wedge?
Ah I like a bit of Linx. Last time someone said that to me I thought they were partial to a bit of jazz funk until they brandished an aerosol and I skeedaddled. Best thing about Sketch was that he joined 23 Skidoo and stayed with them for eons, which is infinitely cooler than his partner ending up as a voice coach on some Pop Idol thing (or so I'm told).
David Grant! I have a trio of singles (this, Intuition and So This Is Romance) knocking around somewhere. I do like a bit of Linx.
...and I've still got my picture sleeve seven of Thrown Away The Key. Linx made terrific Brit pop soul. No need to wait for Sketch to join 23 Skiddoo to rate his bass playing either - he sounds great on all those Linx singles too, like a homegrown Bernard Edwards.
Linx were fab. Intuition, You're Lying, Throw Away The Key, Rise and Shine - all top tunes.
and he's maried to carrie grant which is quite quite brilliant
Are you better now?
ahhhhhhh chooooo.... cough....
Bless! And there's me swilling wine and lazing in the sun for a week and ...oh, I feel just terrible, I really do...
