Story

Love and Dancing is the second collection of 80's new wave tracks that the band has recorded in a ska and reggae style. Instead of releasing all the songs together as an album, the band will be releasing a song and video every other month over 2016 and 2017 with a goal of having 12 songs compiled in the collection by the middle of 2017. 

The album is called "Love and Dancing" because the songs the band has recorded so far are all about the ups and downs of love and the joys of dancing. It also pays homage to the Human League who had a side project called The League Unlimited Orchestra and released a remix of their "Dare" album with that title in the early 80's. 

The seventh release from the album in April 2017 is a new wave meets reggae version of Blondie's "Atomic" released in 1980 became the band's third number one in the UK Singles Chart, where it held the top spot for two weeks. It also reached the Top 40 in the US in Spring 1980.
