From Milwaukee Wisconsin, Colour Radio were a new wave/melodic pop quartet who formed back in 1982. They released their one-off self titled debut album two years later on the back of some strong local presence, and of course the still popular new wave, pop and new romantic scenes that were part of the trend back at that time. The album demonstrated the band had a melodic core, and had its moments, though some of the songs were scratchy. Reference points include: The Police, Taxxi, and Men At Work - especially when they go down the quirky route. The album was produced by Rick Derringer, he also guested on it as well. Derringer had tinkered with this new wave style on his DNA project with Carmine Appice, it must have been a phase he was going through at the time.

Hmm.. not so big on this. These guys made it to the Twin Cities once or twice. Good but average album I thought. Kind of thrown in with the glut of everything happening at the time sadly standing somewhat below the fray.

I agree. My interpretation of 'scratchy' only scratches the surface.. lol!
