The crazy thing about all these crap 80s bands that did well, while here in the UK the simply brilliant Talk Talk had songs like Its My Life and Such A Shame that didn't even reach the top 40 when released! These days Its My Life is played more than most of the big 80s hitters, how did it only get to 46 in 1984 such a great song, guess Radio 1 ignored it at the time...
totally agree, and my original post is based on bitterness i had at the time and have still got ( im 52 and should really let it go ) , bands that were imageless ie pale fountains, friends again,love and money, go-betweens, the bible, releasing great singles yet no chart success for any of them, yet dress up in bohemian clothing, dye your hair wear a stupid hat, release a s hit single and roberts your uncle.

Lucky you, wish I had seen them at their peak in 1986, from top synth band to guitar to inventing modern prog rock to retire before 40...genius.

...then one of the Seagulls took exception to the advice that was beginning to be offered from the audience, and after a lively exchange of views the whole band stomped off stage left, never to re-emerge...
and they ran?
