The introduction of Frank Duff on trumpet and Paul Grimes on trombone to the band was exciting but it also came about due to another upheaval. Original member, Paul’s brother Lar left the band and that really set us back but then Paul wrote a new batch of songs. They were full of amazing brass arrangements and so we re-emerged even stronger as a five-piece; On the posters, it read; The Blades featuring the Blue Brass. Our next single was ‘Revelations of Heartbreak’. A brass-infused slice of pop magic. It had the raw energy of punk and the pop sensibility of Motown. It never failed to fill the dance floor when we were gigging.
