Modern Romance / I Believe In Me
7" - WEA K-18329 - 1980
Yeah I know, Modern Romance... WTF? But before you hit the back button, let me point out at this stage this was still the same band as late period Leyton Buzzards. Musically it's a mix of new wave and pop much like the Buzzards were experimenting with on their January 1980 Peel Session. The A-side is perhaps more pop than new wave but it's still worth a listen. The excellent B-side however is more upbeat, think 'Weird Frenz' with a bigger budget.
If anyone is hoping to pick up a copy of this record, there's good and bad news. The good news is it's Modern Romance so it would likely be dirt cheap. The bad news is it's near impossible to find.
