Breakfast - The Associates

Before releasing 'Breakfast', the Associates had made their name on satellite music TV with songs like 'Waiting for the loveboat' and 'Those first impressions'. I wasn't aware of their debut hit 'Party fears two', and didn't like the two mentioned songs at all. 'Breakfast', by comparison, was a masterpiece. I loved the music of this track, strings and all.

The B-side of the single featured an extended instrumental version, and I was expecting a vocal version of that on the 12" single. What a pleasant surprise that it was actually a different extended remix! I only bought this 12" 15 years after its original release, but it was still worth it...

My collection: 12" single no. 395
Found: Record fair, Netherlands, 1999
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'Breakfast [extended]' / 'Breakfast alone', 'Kites'
