RADIO STARS - FROM A RABBIT


1978. Chiswick Records NS 36.
Produced by Martin Gordon.


1. FROM A RABBIT


2. THE BEAST NO. 2


Radio Stars were formed out of the demise of Jet (some of the members also spent time in Sparks). Jet were left without a contract after an amazing, but financially unsuccessful album but the name change was able to land them a new deal. As Radio Stars, they seemed to struggle to find their own sound and as a result the singles are pretty diverse. Their first single 'Dirty Pictures' is pretty poppy with hints of punk, but 'From A Rabbit' find the band returning to their glam roots.

This single is neither rare nor expensive; and copies can be had for a few bucks over at gemm.com
