Are you sure it's early 80's? I would guess it is early 90's. Matrix could help to find out what it is.

Hello kalcidis.

Thanks for reading this topic. For me it sounds like early 1980's, but I'm not sure. Unfortunately I don't own this record so I cannot check matrix.

Definitely not Peter Spence, whose voice is very particular.
No idea who the singer is but the production isn't unlike what the early Fashion 12"s sounded like, and so does the singing. Could be recorded around 1983/85 in England, imho. Pretty sophisticated sound, like what Dennis Bovell and/or John Kpiaye used to do then.
