SECRET AFFAIR + THE TRUTH
Incredible Mod Revival Double Bill for the August Bank Holiday Weekend.
Secret Affair formed in 1978 from their previous incarnation as the “power pop” band New Hearts. In a period of a little over two years, they posted five releases in the UK Singles Chart, and released three albums. The debut single "Time For Action" reached number 13 in the UK chart, putting them at the forefront of the mod revival movement. More chart success followed with "Let Your Heart Dance", "My World", "Do you know" and "Sound Of Confusion". They also drew up plans for a smart-dressing youth movement - "The Glory Boys" – based around the idea of 1960s gangster chic, influenced by the movie, "Performance."
The Truth were formed in 1982 by the band leader of Nine Below Zero Dennis Greaves and Mick Lister. Their debut single "Confusion ( Hits Us Every Time )" went to No. 22 in the UK charts and was followed swiftly by "A Step in the Right Direction" which reached No. 32. Their debut album "Playground" came out in 1985 and was followed by "Weapons of Love" (1987) and "Jump" (1989) along with some fantastic singles before the band split.
