Heart of glass - Associates

Billy MacKenzie and Alan Rankine formed the Associates in early 1980, after having worked together on various other projects. They found commercial success with their 1982 release, 'Party fears two'. Shortly after the release of their debut album 'Sulk', Rankine left the band, leaving Billy MacKenzie to continue with the band. This proved to be a difficult task, as commercial success eluded the Associates ever since.

'Heart of glass' was released in 1988. It was a cover of Blondie's 1979 single. Remixed by Auchterhouse, this 12" single adds some power to an otherwise slightly dull version.

My collection: 12" single no. 235
Found: unknown, 1990
Cost: unknown
Tracks: 'Heart of glass (Auchterhouse mix)' / 'Heart of glass (Auchterhouse Instrumental)', 'Her only wish'
