"I Can't Stand The Rain" by Eruption was the first single I ever bought way back in 1978. I paid 45p from Woolworths....it's still upstairs in amongst the heaps of vinyl that Jon and I have amassed over the years. Occasionally we'll dust a few albums off and have a retro disco with our pals. I don't care what anyone says, nothing beats a vinyl record, there's heaps more atmosphere, CDs sound far too clinical and pristine.
Eruption - Disco-tastic genius.
What was your first ever single?
