Into The Gap

February 25, 2013 at 6:12 am 2 comments


On this day in 1984, the Thompson Twins single “Hold Me Now” entered the US Top 40. It was the first single from the British/new wave band’s fourth album Into The Gap, and it eventually became their highest charting US hit reaching #3 on the Billboard chart.

On a drunken Friday night in 1997 we recorded this embarrassing version of Hold Me Now on an 8-track in Chris’ living room. Apologies to the listener.

    Please excuse this rant or please delete if inappropriate — In defense of my embarrassing song input, it was raining that day, and earlier in the evening I was in a bicycle accident. I managed a ride to the ER, pasted with a bandage, painkillers, and a softball sized knee, I headed for the band night. After ascending to the porch on the 7th step or so, on crutches, the rain still drizzling, I slipped. And a tumbling down the steps I went. Got up and made it in. Hold Me Now held special significance for me, I was wooed by it once. Besides, I was often under the assumption that there was a charm to my playing after 6 beers.

    I think that cover is great! Now that there’s a story behind it, even better. Always one of the highlights for me of that Double Agent album!
