The first album of Jo Broadbery with The Standouts recorded in 1980 for Revenge Records. Previously, in 1978 they formed a band called "Local Operator".
This album was produced by the famous Mike Howlett, producer of bands like "The Keys", "Martha and The Muffins", "The Alarm" or "Swimming Pool Q's", althought the best seller band produced by Howlett was "OMD" and their hit "Enola Gay"
It's a piece of Power Pop (New Wave) hard to find and specially indicated for the New Wave collectors. It was recorded in the best New Wave times and has the sound of them, powerful guitars, voices in the Costello's way and near the other great "Jo"... Jo Jo Zep, good rythmns, fine chorus and a song in front of all the others called "Temptation", a marvellous piece. (Power Pop Lovers Blog)
