    Agreed! I enjoy everything Bronski Beat has put out, even through the lineup changes, and that is saying a lot. More often than not, after losing a lead singer it is tough for a band to find success, but all three vocalists were great. The band put out good stuff every time.

    I’m the same as VanceMan, I had no idea this was floating about in music space. Too bad they didn’t follow up with Jon Foster as a vocalist.

    This was to be the 3rd single from ‘Truthdare Doubledare’ but was pulled at the last minute, even after the promos had been sent out…and i believe artwork completed for the sleeve?
    Jon had left by this point.

    I think it’s time for Larry, Steve, and Jimmy to reunite….and do a NEW LP???
