The Associates - 18 Carat Love Affair (New/Old 002)

Another track I had never heard of until now which is taken from their album Sulk (at least the american version of it). This track was a top 40 hit in the UK reaching number 24. Nice alternative gothic sounding single from 1982. The band was never really big over in North America. I always saw their records in the used shops but never really checked their music out until recently via the internet (Did own a 12 Inch for Waiting For The Loveboat which is a great track). Sadly, the lead singer of this band ended up committing suicide in 1997, potentially a casualty of the eighties.
