Vitamin Z – Burning Flame (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 31st July 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

Vitamin Z founders Geoff Barradale and Nick Lockwood were born and raised in Northern England’s Sheffield. The group originally took shape around a loose-knit collection of local musicians who came together in a common rehearsal space.

The band’s debut album Rites Of Passage, was released in 1985. Its most prominent single, “Burning Flame,” did well on the U.S. dance charts and the band toured England with Tears for Fears. Vitamin Z also made news when its video for the song “Circus Ring (We Scream About)” filmed in Istanbul, making them the first Western Europeans to be allowed to film in Turkey since the film Midnight Express prompted government officials there to close the border to foreign film units.

Geoff Barradale now serves as manager for the Arctic Monkeys.

The “Dub Version” is exclusive to the US 12″.
