Do any songs bring back memories of cruising down the road, with the windows down and the cassette deck blasting out a jam for all within earshot to hear? This is one of those songs that does it for me. In 1986, when this song hit, I was in my third year of college at Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA. I ran out to the local Turtles record store and snapped up this 12”, brought it home and recorded it to cassette immediately. I blasted this jam over and over for months.
There are several conflicting stories about who was the driving force behind Timex Social Club. This much we do know, the record was produced by Jay King and Denzil Foster. Members of the group at that time were Marcus Thompson (founder), Michael Marshall (lead vocals), Alex Hill and Kevin Moore. The band went through lineup changes and Jay King and Denzil Foster went on to form Club Nouveau. Whatcha think tomorrow’s post is gonna be…?
