Fun Boy Three: Waiting (Chrysalis); Bananarama: Deep Sea Skiving (London)
J.D. Considine, Musician, June 1983
ON THE surface, these two records seem to have a lot in common. Aside from the fact that the Funboys helped to get Bananarama together and used them on the first FB3 LP, there's the use of a three-singer format and a preference for heavy percussion instead of a standard drum kit linking the two. Nonetheless, the music on each album is quite different, and not particularly in the way that might be expected.
