Posted by DjPaulT on 5th April 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

A. Front

REQUEST

“What You Say” is a single by British synth-pop duo Birch And Hallam consisting of David Birch & Nick Hallam. The duo only released two singles without any success. Nick Hallam later went on to form Stereo MCs and scored the hit “Connected” in 1992. David Birch went on to work with Thomas Dolby, Malcolm McLaren and Bruce Woolley And The Camera Club in 1983 playing guitar and contributing vocals.

This is one of those really great lost 12s that I hope many of you will come to like. Open your mind and give this one a listen.
