Show 220

Miss Broadway by Belle Epoque. Follow up hit single from this France-based trio after Black is Black, which I happened to play a few weeks ago.  This one is from 1978

Derniere Nuit by Message.  Can’t find much of anything about this band in English other than that they are French and dark wave. This was a 1988 single release.

Poppadink Tribe by Midi Maxi and Efti.  A Swedish band made up of two twin sisters Midi and Maxi Berhanu and their friend Freweyni “Efti” Teclehaimanot. Midi and Maxi were refugees from Ethiopia and came to Sweden with their parents in 1985. Efti was born in a refugee camp in Eritrea and also arrived in Sweden in 1985. The three girls finally met in the Stockholm suburb of Akalla.  This is from their self-titled 1991 album.

Pussy X by Kas Product. French electronic duo considered part of the French coldwave and electro punk movements. Formed in 1980, the duo consists of Spatsz on electronics and rhythm machines with Mona Soyoc on guitar, vocals and piano. This is a 1982 b-side to the single Never Come Back.

Kiss off by Violent Femmes.   1982 debut album Violent Femmes and written by Gordon Gano when he was still in high school.

*I Got You by Split Enz.  Request.

Don’t Let it Go to Your Head by Jean Carne.  Request.

Eyes by Coldreams. B-side from Morningrain, 1986 debut single from this French new wave team.

Photograph by Def Leppard.  Lead single from 1983’s Pyromania.  I had no idea these guys were from Sheffield, England.  I always thought of them as American.

Aussies: 1994

*Head by Chocolate Starfish. Formed in 1992 before disbanding in 1998. By March 1993 the line-up was Darren Danielson on drums, Norman Falvo on keyboards and backing vocals, John “Stone” Nixon on bass guitar, Zoran Romich on lead guitar and Adam Thompson on lead vocals. Their self-titled debut album, featuring this single, was issued in April 1994, and peaked at No. 2 on the ARIA Albums Chart. This is their first play on TripleX.

*Faith, Love and Understanding by David Dixon.  He’s best known as the lead singer of the Australian group Indecent Obsession. In 1994 he performed this track at the Aus music awards.

*All Come Together by Diesel.  From the same music awards show in 1994.

*Put Yourself in My Place by Kylie Minogue. From her 5th studio album, 1994, a self-titled affair. This was the 2nd single released from the album.

*Tomorrow by Silverchair.  Their debut single from 1994. Could this be their debut on this show??  I really doubt it…and yet they weren’t yet in my database of Aussie music from the era so I don’t know…  Anybody else remember?

*I am Australian by The Seekers.  Halftime show at the 1994 Grand Final, The Seekers’ final Australian appearance…and my first play of them, I believe.

Money Can’t Buy It by Annie Lennox.  Request.

Sahrah by End of Data.  1984 title track to their debut LP.  More French new wave

Slave to the Rhythm by Grace Jones. Title track for her 1985 album, her 7th. Thisis the original 7” version.

Inside Out by Martin DuPont.   French new wave artist from Marseille, France’s second city. From Hot Paradox, 1987, his last studio album.

Ya Mo B There by James Ingram & Michael McDonald. The song originally appeared on Ingram’s 1983 album, It’s Your Night, released on Quincy Jones’s Qwest Records label. It was released as a single in late 1983 and did very well.
