MACHINATIONS - big music

Hello and welcome back... This band was once quoted as a band ahead of their time, Let loose in 1985 this was dance music at its best.
I first heard of them while watching "Countdown" on Saturday nights and loved their sound and style.
The album "Big Music" had a number of hits including "My Hearts on Fire","You got me going Again", "Predator" and "No say in It" which is my pick of the album with its punchy beats and rhythmic guitars it one great song.
The machinations myspace page is a great site ( view here ) has some great songs to listen to... one of those songs is "cars and planes" of a later album and is very hard to get, it has to be one of my best favs of the 80s.. i used to have a demo tape of "beats and planes" which was a dance version of this song ... it pumps, but cant find it anywhere.
