MOVING TARGETS

Found this in a charity shop in Oxford about two years ago. The A side has more zip than a pair of Brian Rix's trousers. The two B sides are moderate fare. Came out in 1980 on the artily named Graphic Design label. In the picture the Moving Targets are moving so fast they appear to be standing still. Seeming to be intently devout, gathered around a lectern they may have pilfered from a church, these four lads are looking for a congregation to help boost sales. The turnout was poor and they shuffled off back to obscurity.

This is probably their only release and as this was recorded in Yorkshire I think they were most likely northern lads. Little information is offered on the sleeve except that the music and lyrics were written by Steve Walker and Dave Purcell and production and photography was by Bill Nelson.

Niceness. Once upon a time wildly rare - less so these days, as is sometimes the case. Yes it was their only single.

And it failed to even make double figures on ebay recently. A good value prize for the winning bidder.
