b-movie were one of the many bands featured on the Some Bizarre Album in 1981. I can’t remember if their track was any good because I foolishly lent it to some-one about 20 years ago and I haven’t seen it (or her) since.
Things looked promising for them at first with the release of Remembrance Day, their excellent debut single, which reached No 61 in the UK chart. I always liked the combination of catchy tune and gloomy lyric. The disappointing follow-up Marilyn Dreams failed to build on this. I will feature it on a future post but to be honest I’ve got much better records to digitise first. A year later they released Nowhere Girl (another song for a future post) which really should have been their breakthrough single but for some reason it never happened for them.
Here for your listening pleasure is Remembrance Day and if by any chance you know a girl with a lisp called Annette (well I suppose she’ll be 40-something now) ask her if she’s got Mick’s Some Bizarre Album.
