Here is a quote:
jaw-dropper. 'Decent Beat' neatly caught the sounds and vibe of the UK's synth pop. In the August 1984 Buzz magazine I was given space to run three short articles - on Bruce Cockburn (still going strong today of course), the Clark Sisters (ditto) and Quickflight. The latter, with their hook-laden songs, could have made it big, in Britain at least, if Kingsway had had the vision to release a single
Thanks. God Bless.
