80’s Bands: Scritti Politti

green-gartsideOne of my favourite pop bands in the 80’s was a British pop band called Scritti Politti who had many hit songs in the UK/US charts with “Wood Beez”, “Absolute”, “The Word Girl”, and “The Perfect Way”.  Scritti Politti had this unique sound, and the result was catchy pop tunes and the unique smooth vocals of lead singer Green Gartside – sweet pop music! If you have never heard of Scritti Politti before, I would recommend you listen to their best-selling albums titled “Cupid & Psyche ’85” (1985), and “Provision” (1988) – my favourite albums! The other day, I read Green’s Wiki which states that he is now 60 years old – Wow! Green still rocks and has superb vocals – check out the band’s videos below!

Scritti Politti are currently touring the UK. For more info and tour dates, please check out their official website at: http://www.scritti.net/
