You know when you haven’t got much time so you feature a record you don’t know much about and therefore don’t need to spend a lot of time typing? Well, this is one of those but don’t let that put you off – it’s a good one in the gloomy eighties tradition fairly similar in style to early Black (aka Colin Vearncombe) material.
The Light was Brian Atherton who sings and plays all keyboards. He had previously been a member of Box of Toys who recorded a session for John Peel’s show in 1983.
Other contributors to this record are Linda Wright on backing vocals, Des Tongue on bass, Jerry on guitar and Mr Small on oboe. The oboe gives it a slight China Crisis feel.
