About this item

Following on from the success of their debut album and a one off single, a cover of the George Gershwin's  'Summertime', the Fun Boy Three went into the studio at the end of 1982 with David Byrne (Talking Heads) producing.

The album features the singles ‘The More I See (The Less I Believe)', ‘The Tunnel of Love' and ‘Our Lips Are Sealed', the later is co-written with Jane Wiedlin of The Go Go's who supported The Specials on tour in the UK in 1980. The album took on a more sophisticated sound and lyrical content, tackling more political issues like the troubles in Northern Ireland. It also has a cover of the Miss Marple theme tune from the 1960's film series Murder She Said starring Margaret Rutherford.

The album reached number 14 in the UK charts in February 1983 followed by a tour, after which the band disbanded.
