The 80’s was filled with so much wonderful music and much of the 80’s music never rose to the surface.
In 1983 Strange Acquaintance released a single titled ‘Heart Beat 83’ and later added members to become British Indie band Harrison.

Here is a collection of Strange Acquaintance & Harrison.

Just listening to Harrison.
Sounds wonderful.
Really deserved to be heard more widely.
"Warmer Weather" for example could have easily been mistaken for an Orange Juice track.

Thank you very much for sharing.

Both bands are new to me, so thank you for letting me listen to some new music. There is an interesting story about the Heart Beat single on the Harrison discogs page: ... se/3142214
