(The Colourfield - one of Terry Hall's many incarnations)
A trip to the 80's this time. From their Castles In The Air ep released by The Colourfield in 1985 (Terry Hall - Specials, Fun Boy 3 etc. etc) a track I can't seem to find reissued anywhere. "Your Love Was Smashing" wasn't on the first album, or the second, or issued on compilations. Maybe it's shown up somewhere but I haven't found it. Which is too bad because it's a good track from a band that didn't get the recognition it deserved in the 80's. I've always liked Terry Hall's work. It's always had a good bite to it, lyrically and musically. Case in point - this was the first track I was thinking of putting up when I decided to do Nights At The Roundtable, and I hadn't played this song in at least 10 years.
