Tonight was a great night for those of us who love our music definitely 80s and out of the mainstream. Even if the songs sounded familiar, chances are, the versions were different. Case in point: “88 Lines,” which was the original (and somewhat rougher) version before the Nails were signed to a record label.
Tune in to Ed and his “the weather outside is frightful” 80’s Retrospect show on CFRC-FM from 8 pm until 10 pm on Tuesday nights. Ed takes requests by phone: (613) 533-CFRC (2372) or email: retrospectcfrc at yahoo dot ca. Indulge yourself in some “80’s Music that doesn’t suck.” I guarantee die-hard 80’s New Wave/post-punk fans will not be disappointed.
