Classix Nouveaux – Guilty (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 19th August 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1981

A. Front

Classix Nouveaux was one of the first new romantic acts in England. Although Classix Nouveaux’s more guitar-heavy sound separated them from the mostly synthetic rhythms of Japan and Ultravox, the group’s appetite for stylish fashion and danceable keyboards had them quickly associated with the new romantic movement.

In 1981, Classix Nouveaux released “Guilty,” their most well-known track; “Guilty” was a Top-20 hit in Sweden, and the video received airplay on MTV. In the UK the single reached #43 while in the US it peaked at #66 on the Billboard dance chart.

SIDE A:
Guilty (Long Version) 4:40

SIDE B:
