Tin Tin - Kiss Me - 1982
These are his first two singles that I've collected into an EP of sorts. It's Stephen's first outing after leaving Duran Duran. He obviously was trying the New Wave thing here, before he drifted into that Post Punk sound with the Lilac Time. It's not a bad disc, but it's a far cry from D2.
You almost wonder what would have happened in the 80s if Mr Duffy had stayed and Mr LeBon had never been found. Was Simon destined for greatness? Was D2 in the right place at the right time, or was it Simon's vocals that made them great? I just now listened to the GOF demo with Stephen Duffy singing, and although it WAS a demo, it was crap compared with the official version.
Anyway, enjoy this little one, it ain't bad, and will fit nicely in your 80s New Wave folder or on your CD shelf. That's where I have mine.
