An Eighties Obscurity

Fashiøn - Move On (12" Version)
From their second LP Fabrique, released in 1982. Fashiøn were a British band who had a slick look and an even slicker sound. They were British white boys playing the funk, a blend of electro, disco, jazz, new wave and some r'n'b all given a glossy, club friendly sheen by producer Zeus B. Held. All style and no substance is a pretty accurate description for these guys, but for a while there I enjoyed them anyway. Eventually I sold all my Fashiøn records, and of course have regretted it ever since. I came across this 12" in a used bin a while ago and picked it up. It is definitely of its era, but holds up better than some of its peers.
