Hue And Cry – Labour Of Love (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 20th July 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

pseudo-satisfaction baby!

“Labour of Love” was a hit single by Scottish duo/brothers Greg and Pat Kane, better known as Hue and Cry. Included on the album Seduced and Abandoned, it was released as their second single in 1987 after their first hit “I Refuse” had failed to make the UK Top 75.

Showcasing a somewhat funky sound that was very different from their later ballad releases, this song remains their biggest hit to date, peaking at #6 on the UK Singles Chart and meriting inclusion on many hits compilations of the 1980s.

The song is written from the perspective of a disillusioned working-class Conservative voter of the mid-1980s who has worked hard to believe in Margaret Thatcher’s story of a new proud, individualist Britain and who is now realising that there is less “gain” than “pain” in doing so.

The band had a lucky break with this single when they were asked to perform it on the BBC music show Top of the Pops at short notice. American band Los Lobos were booked to be on the show that week with their hit “La Bamba” but due to a mix-up with their visa applications, they were unable to perform. Hue and Cry were asked to fill the gap in the show and the exposure that this generated helped propel the single up the UK charts.

The b-sdie “Widescreen” is a non album track.

Boys Club – I Remember Holding You (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 10th July 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

“I Remember Holding You” is a hit single by American Pop duo Boys Club, which peaked at #8 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1989. The duo consisted of Gene Hunt and Joe Pasquale from Minneapolis, Minnesota. In radio interviews conducted during the height of their success both Hunt and Pasquale stated that one of their primary musical influences was George Michael, and more specifically, the work Michael did during the Wham! years. “The way he arranged songs and melodies was quite unique and we tried to emulate that with our own music,” Hunt was quoted as saying during one of those early interviews.

Boys Club was the first group to appear on the New Mickey Mouse Club as a musical guest during the first episode.

Hunt (born Eugene Wolfgramm) was previously a member of the family group The Jets. His youngest brothers and sisters are now members of a hard rock group, Against the Season.

In 1990, Hunt briefly reunited with The Jets to record four new tracks for The Best of The Jets (1990). He was featured on the cover and inside album sleeve, and he appeared in the “Special Kinda Love” music video.
