After a thirty eight year hiatus, the rejuvenated band have just completed putting the finishing touches to the first Altered Images music since the album “Bite” was released in
1983. It’s an upbeat and contemporary sounding album which sounds like a natural progression of the Altered Images journey and sound, all topped with the instantly recognisable vocals of Clare Grogan. The album is produced by former Altered Images band member and acclaimed producer Stephen Lironi and features 12 songs that Clare
Grogan has co-written with Stephen, Bernard Butler and Bobby Bluebell.

Speaking on the album title track, Clare Grogan says, “My homage to all the crazy nights out that I’ve had. I think it’s a metaphor for life! The fun, the dancing, the drama, the tears, the tequila shots, the lust! Inspired by so many artists I’ve danced to around the world from
Kraftwerk to the Tom Tom Club. A DJ saved my life many times. Enjoy!”
The celebrated Scottish band fronted by singer Clare Grogan started life as a post-punk band, winning Best New Group at the NME Awards before becoming one of the most
recognisable pop cover stars of the 1980s with six UK top 40 hits between the years of 1981-
1983, including the massive Top 10 singles “Happy Birthday” (#2), “I Could Be Happy” (#7)
and “Don’t Talk To Me About Love” (#7), all lifted from their three Top 20/Top 30 albums
released in the same time frame (two selling Silver).
