Perfect Way – Scritti Politti (1985)
This British band, founded by Green Gartside, started out as a punk band before turning more toward the New Wave & synth-pop exhibited by this hit. Scritti Politti continued to release music into the early 90’s even though they didn’t chart again in the US. Gartside, who’s the band’s only constant member, retired from the music industry for most of the 90’s, but brought Scritti Politti back in 1999 with a hip-hop-flavored come-back album. While their commercial success hasn’t returned to the peak experienced by this album, critical success returned with their 2006 effort, their latest studio album. Meanwhile, Gartside has collaborated with various artists on side projects.
