Meeting No.1 – 12″ singles

Theme: Five twelve inch remixes better than the original

My old mate Scotty used to hate 12″ singles saying they were never as good as the 7″ version, so this was the first QUIMS challenge.
The meeting took place at Peacock manor. The good Doctor has got a penchant for new 7″singles (most of which I have to admit I’d never heard of) and it was a pleasure to rifle through them.

Some of the others choices were fabulous – Revolutionary Spirit, Sensoria & Say Hello Wave Goodbye with the clarinet solo in – wonderful. I’ve never been a Simple Minds fan except for the American, but I Travel was really good. Wish I could say the same for Bronski beat (“I’ve not got a record player anymore so couldn’t listen to it first” was Rogers excuse) and 9 minutes of A Flock of Seagulls is surely enough for anyone….I think Scotty may have had a point!
