BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987
“Kiss” is a 1986 single originally recorded by Prince and The Revolution.
An industrial cover of the song was released in November 1986 by British alternative rock-dance crossover band Age of Chance. Bass player Geoff Taylor described it as: “We basically removed the sex and replaced it with lump hammers.”
The single reached No. 1 on the UK Indie Charts in late 1986. It spent 11 weeks on the mainstream pop charts in the United Kingdom, starting at 6 December 1986 and peaking at No. 50 in early 1987.
In New Zealand it charted for four weeks, peaking at No. 21.
In the United States, it spent six weeks on the Billboard Dance Club Play chart, peaking at No. 35 on 23 May 1987.
