Inspired by the Sunday evening Absolute 80s radio show presented by Matthew Rudd, I thought it was high time that I started my own ‘Forgotten 80s’ blog for friends, family and regular correspondents. Enjoy!

Go West’s first and, to date, still their biggest UK hit, ‘We Close Our Eyes’ peaked at No.5 in the UK charts in April 1985. I have to say it was a pleasure to hear Peter Cox and Richard Drummie, along with their band mates, perform the song live last night at Rochester’s Castle Concerts here in Medway, Kent. Even after 28 years, the song has lost none of its nervous, eclectic energy, or its ability to get audiences, regardless of age. to their feet. A fantastic and powerful performance, and we look forward to welcoming Go West to Rochester again sometime in, hopefully, the near future.
In the meantime, you can catch the guys on tour with The Christians and Hue and Cry this November in Dartford, Kent and across the country. Your orders are BE THERE!
