Bimble's 7" Skullduggery Part 6: Fashion (Music)
Fashion - Steady Eddie Steady/Killing Time 7", 1978
Those well versed in early 80's new wave (and I suspect it helps if you're from the UK or Europe) will recall a band entitled Fashion who had great album covers and hair but crap records. But did you know that before they became crap they were called Fashion (Music) and had a completely different singer with a low voice who was very tall (check the sleeve - that guy is tall)? This is one of the best 7" singles I own and the highlight of this band. "Steady Eddie Steady" is a very catchy tune, and "Killing Time" is a delicious treat of dubby reggae, equally as catchy as the A-side.
