about

In late 1983 i heard & liked early Hip-Hop & Disco from the U.S.A. and chart bands like Thompson Twins, Thomas Dolby, Cabaret Voltaire & New Order whose 'Blue Monday' had just become the biggest ever selling 12" record. Musically i was ready to do something completely different, so armed with a keyboard & a cheap drum machine i wrote some basic beats & synth sequences and asked Michelle to add some vocals & lyrics and although she had never sung before she turned out to be a totally natural singer / lyricist & performer.

The Pink and Black 'Sometimes i Wish' 12" vinyl was released in 1984 on Illuminated records, was bootlegged in 1985 & released on 7" & 12" in Spain/Europe and also re-released & remastered by Emotional Rescue records in 2014.
