CURIOSITY KILLED THE CAT - "MISFIT"
The 1987 re-issue of Misfit reached #7 in the UK charts and #42 in the U.S, and was taken from the #1 album Keep Your Distance. The official video features the controversial artist Andy Warhol. However, as this is unavailable, I have added a live performance of the song at the 1987 Prince's Trust concert which sounds really decent.
Lead singer Ben Volpiere-Pierrot was renowned for wearing a beret, although it actually turned out to be a peaked fisherman's hat worn back-to-front! It was a pretty novel look for the time.
Misfit was originally released as the band's debut single in 1986, reaching #76 in the UK singles chart. The follow-up single (and the band's biggest 80's hit) Down to Earth peaked at #3 in the UK singles chart, which led to the decision to re-release Misfit for a second time to capitalise on their popularity.
Both tracks featured on the album Keep Your Distance, which I have somewhere on CD gathering dust - must dig it out again as it was a top quality album.
