FREEEZ - iou ( lost hit )
Hello and welcome back... Listening to a music special on triple j Sydney around 1987 , the subject was about synthesizers and emulators and the band "freeez" was featured heavily ... mainly this song. IOU was also used in the breakdance move "beatstreet" and went to no 2 in the UK in 1983... Love the use of the Roland SH101 synth ( i had one but sold it.. kicking myself ).. This song was kinda ahead of its time, getting a synth to sound like a human singing was cutting edge stuff in 1983 and is one of my favorites.
