REAL LIFE - heartland

Hello and welcome back... Known as the haircut bands ( kids in the kitchen, pseudo echo, dear enemy ) "Real Life" burst onto the music scene with big hair and a huge hit called "Send me an Angel". It was a snappy new wave/ synthpop song that launched them into the spotlight. For me I was in heaven ... I loved this type of music and it put many aussie bands on the map.. The pub/ club scene was massive and often sorted the boys from the men, and these new haircut bands could really show what they were made of ( haircut bands because many of them were hairdressers by day, musicians by night ).
Heartland was released in 1983 and had the hits "Send me an Angel", "Always" , "Openhearted" and my pick of the album "Catch me i'm falling" with its punchy electric drums and sweeping synths.. this is one brilliant album.
