224 – The Passions – I’m In Love With A German Film Star (1981)
Written by The Passions
Produced by Peter Wilson
Label – Polydor
This short lived, “one hit wonder” post punk outfit from London lit our lives up with the wonderous “I’m In Love With A German Film Star”. The crisp rhythms, Barbara Gogan’s wearied yet sweet vocal, and Clive Timperley’s unmistakable Echoplex treated guitar makes for one of the most original singles of the decade. In addition, as song intro’s go, there’s few to top this.
