Going to a Jojo! *

 Secret Affair unleash Soho Dreams in Soho!

Wednesday 13th March saw Secret Affair launch the album Soho Dreams to a specially invited crowd at Madame Jojos in Brewer Street in the traditional mod playground of Soho. Ian Page and Dave Cairns’ current line up played a selection of tracks from the new album plus a few classics from back in the day thrown in at the end. Among the crowd of assembled music press and fans were Purple Heart Simon Stebbing, Long Tall Shortys Tony Perfect and Acid Jazzs’ Eddie Piller. There was also news of a new single taken from the album, All The Rage which sees Secret Affairs sound brought bang up to date with a pumped Motown beat, lashings of brass and plenty of keyboards. Add to that a great instrumental take on Brian Augers Black Cat with Andy Fairclough letting loose on the Hammond, it’s a fine addition to the bands previous recordings.
