Does anyone have a good rip of the Messengers song Serious Colour.

I saw a clip on Youtube the other day from a tv broadcast, the band is introduced by Midge Ure, and wonder if this track was officially released.

No it wasn't released and the band members don't have master tapes anymore - Danny Mitchell told as much on Ultravox Forum long ago. So only what you have on vinyl - or if you managed to get their album in 2000s.
