****FLASHBACK FRIDAY****

Talk Talk

"It’s My Life"

This is one of those Pandora/Sirius radio jams that pop up during an 80’s mix that your like oh damn…this is rad.  It’s a bona fide roller skating jam.

Rising from the English new romantic/synthpop scene of the early 80’s, Talk Talk scored two big singles in 1984 with their second LP It’s My Life.  The title cut was Talk Talk’s most successful US single reaching number one on the Hot Dance Play charts…it’s still pretty slick.

No Doubt did a cover of “It’s My Life” for their greatest hits in 2003…it also does not suck.

"Kangaroo Court"

The slick-pop song crafters from L.A. ride out again with their new single “Kangaroo Court”.  It dropped late this March on their own Lazy Hooks label.  

To me these guys really understand their sound, the place they are writing from, and where they want to go.  I think they are only gonna get better.

Check out the sweet remix Shook did for the track as well.
