Go Ahead : Expanded Edition - Linx

Go Ahead : Expanded Edition
Released on 16th January 2012. LINX started out life as a 5-piece Soul and Brit-Funk band. Signed to Chrysalis records, the band released their first single in 1980. YOU RE LYING reached #15 on the UK Pop Chart. Shortly before the release of their debut album, the band slimmed down their line-up to the bass guitar/singer duo of Sketch (Peter Martin) and David Grant.

Hot on its heels, and in keeping with the original release schedule, here is the follow-up, featuring top 20 hit SO THIS IS ROMANCE, in addition to further chart single CAN’T HELP MYSELF. Released in October 1981, GO AHEAD returned the duo to the top 40 of the album charts. This expanded edition features the group’s later singles PLAYTHING and DON’T HIT ME WITH YOUR LOVE as well as 12” mixes and non-album b-sides.

BBR is very proud to present the first ever CD release of GO AHEAD in full expanded form, complete with extensive liner notes featuring an interview with David Grant along with added bonus tracks.

Keep Your Distance
A long overdue reissue of the 1987 #1 debut album by Curiosity Killed The Cat. It's an essential album for all collectors of 80's pop.

This 16 track CD, features the 9 tracks of the original album, 4 extended 12" mixes from the single releases that were included on a subsequent reissue of the album plus 3 bonus tracks to make this a very comprehensive collection of the band's most successful material. The album was a number 1 UK album in 1987 and remained on the charts for 24 weeks.
This collection features 4 hit singles including Down To Earth #3, Misfit #7, Ordinary Day #11 and Free #54. The 3 bonus tracks featured are b/sides Man, Corruption
(Dub) available on CD for the first time and Bullet.
A comprehensive booklet featuring sleeve notes and a full UK discography featuring many of their sleeves. Curiosity Killed The Cat fronted by the charismatic Ben Volpeliere-Pierrot enjoyed their first hit with Down To Earth in December of 1986. With their James Dean looks, vibrant
street energy and cutting edge soul pop sound it seemed for a while as if Curiosity Killed the Cat may have possessed, a perfect recipe for success in the late eighties pop market.

Initially the band were labelled as a boy band but this ignores the band's undoubted musical backbone and talent. Hit singles were to follow as were two successful albums, their musical and commercial high point being their debut album and the focus of this reissue Keep Your Distance.
