Face '83: C-Bank

Welcome back to the slow trudge through The Face's 1983 best recordings, in an attempt to weigh the judgement of The Face and its team of style-attuned writers against the harsher, 20/20 judgement of history.

1983. The year Carrie Underwood was born, and the year C-Bank teamed up with Eleanore Mills to make this, Get Wet:

There's not much to this, is there? There were shedloads of this sort thing about at the time. Sure, C-Bank might have been Arthur Baker's workmate John Robie, and around the same time C-Bank produced One More Shot, which would eventually get reworked to provide New Order with the mighty Shellshock.

That detail lifts this above 'dancey also-ran' as an act. But it can't lift the track from not being very interesting. The Face 16; History 12.
