80s Music

Vaughan asks whatever happened to… [fill in obscure 80s one-hit wonder band member]

The first thing it kicked off for me was the memory of a track from my first ever record – a Long Player. The track was “A man called Marco” a small guitar piece from the Adam & the Ants album “Friend or Foe”.

Kids, a Long Player was also called an album and was made of black vinyl. You put it on a turning plate thingy and placed a needle on an arm into the grooves made on the record (OK, now I have Madonna’s “Into the Groove” in my head … You can dance, for inspiration…).

Those heady days. Will we ever see New Romance like it again? God I hope not!
