April Showers - Abandon Ship 7"

Released : 1984
Genre : Indie Pop, New Wave
Label : Chrysalis
Producer : Anne Dudley

This is probably one of the best of the obscure/unknown pop singles of the '80s; a string-filled, lush number with a bassline to kill for, and an (Scottish?) accented cutie who orders her objet du desir at the end to 'come on in/the world is lovely.' The flipside "Everytime We Say Goodbye" is not as good, but a bit more upbeat, and a more danceable bassline. Why this single is not more well-known is a travesty.


1. Abandon Ship
2. Everytime We Say Goodbye
