VIDEO OF THE WEEK: THOMPSON TWINS – ‘LOVE ON YOUR SIDE’

June 3, 2019

After a series of memorable yet unsuccessful singles, synth pop trio Thompson Twins finally broke through to a wider audience with the release of their third album, ‘Quick Step & Side Kick’.

And it was with this, the album’s second single, that they crashed the UK Top 10.

This video went some considerable way to cementing the band’s image – and particularly their hair-dos – in the eyes of the record buying public.

Singer Tom Bailey’s flame-coloured Barnet and over-extended pony tail, backing singer Alannah Currie’s exaggerated bouffant and percussionist Joe Leeway’s dreadlocks.

And it also paved the way for their later Stateside success. Sit back and enjoy the moment their moment properly began.
