    Thanks for this one Paul. In my opinion the very best song of Shooting Party is “I Know That Mood”. Do you have it on vinyl? If yes, please post it, it’s a gem!

    Have a great weekend,

    Pablo

    Thanks for this Week of Love, DJPaul!
    You made me discover new Artists and awesome songs.

    This track (and his remix/production by Harding & Curnow)
    reminds me the sounds of “I’m not scared” by Eighth Wonder.
    Regards.

    Didn’t know about these guys. A very catchy song with the typical SAW-sound. The remix sounds great. Thanks Paul for this incredible week of LOVE. Have a great weekend.

    Great to see a post of this forgotten act. I Know That mood and Trick Of The Light were better songs…not sure they got a US release though. If you have them please post Paul! I have the 7″ of both but not the 12″ releases…

    Never heard this before. Thanks! Strong Pet Shop Boys remix vibe to the production. The melody feels like PWL/SAW.
