Triangulating the moment one became a gay Pt 26

May 1982 on the evidence of this lost classic. I remember being fascinated with lead ‘singer’ Steve for some reason. Having not heard this track for 26 years until this morning, I am confident that the devastating combination of attractive yet non-threatening young man, shuffling ladies in silver tops and pseudo-Abba arrangements launched an attack on the 9-year-old Enda at a molecular level.

    I LOVED that song, never liked their “lion sleeps tonight” though, “Top of the Pops” really had a big influence on Eire’s children of the 80’s
    I never thought of the similarity to Abba before but it’s there alright.

    Loving the recent posts, especially the gig reviews
