I went to see them on a Sunday night at Coatham Bowl and was completely mesmerised. I expected a contemporary pop band but they were much much darker and Mark Hollis stood still and demanding of attention. I've loved them ever since.
I must have been away working then as I would not have l missed them for the world. Also I live in Redcar.
Love the band but don't get their last couple of albums. Prefer their earlier music..

Spirit of Eden is one of my favourite albums. I didn't get into its successor Laughing Stock, but maybe I should go back and listen again.

My favourite band ever- Hollis the voice, how I love it. Gone too soon, RIP Mark.

I've attached the Coatham version of Tomorrow Started, one of my favourite tracks of theirs. I missed this gig as I was engulfed in revision for my finals at Uni. Still gutted, after all this time.

However, this isn't the best version I've heard of this track. In 1983 I recorded a session off Radio 1 and then lost the tape in a house move (Showing my age,,,,,,,,,,,,,) I've never heard that version since, and I still search.......

They were just so good, so so good.
