Playing it again it still sounds a bit prone to '80s overdose of tinny tap techno noises, but the perfect moments still way overshadow the dissappointments. Basically, there are two sorts of songs; the burbling Album) The fast ones hurtle along breathlessly, whilst the slow ones conjure up a kind of gothic Jane Austin; all lace blowing in your tearful eyes sort of scene. Which actually sounds belittling, and in fact '10 James Orr Street' and 'Being Cold' LP beautiful balladeering mementoes you ought to treasure forever.
A third single was released in late summer '85, and was as vital as any for a number of reasons, not least because the lead track, the gorgeous and lush 'Who Knows What Love Is? The other two tracks were equally good. It is the sound of late night Struthers playground, sitting atop a climbing frame, lost, lonely and confused with thoughts of a blood splattered bedroom, pink flags and destructive relationships.
Strawberry Switchblade were a great teenage pop group. The Album) track on the single was the Kitchensynchmixup of 'Let Her Go'; a brutal re-mix from the hands of Balfe, Drummond and Youth then of Brilliantwho were already making moves towards their later emergence as Dance Terrorrists of the highest order.
At this time too their image began to alter. Gone were the muti-layered cascades of ribbons and polka-dots, Album) by a move towards simple black leather and PVC - like Venus In Furs adapted for the Smash Hits generation. The video carried this idea through to perfection, being almost a parody of crossed genres, mixing Rose decked out in black leather, chained within a cage, with Jill in soft focus white lace; the romantic idyll.
For a while they had the video on the video jukebox in Troon's dubious, solitary disco, and we would spend evenings annoying all and sundry by playing it over and over. Once again however all this failed to convince the record buying public that Strawberry Switchblade should ever be remembered as anything more then one-hit wonders. New affairs had developed under the light of their Pop brilliance, and had just as swiftly turned sour.
The pained fumblings of disasterous teenage love and lust came crushingly to light that year, leaving scars that can still itch with discomfort today, nearly a decade later. What began as frivolous fun to the strains of 'Since Yesterday' ended with dark, drunk depressions listening to 'Psychocandy'; fittingly groups from opposite ends of the same spectrum first glimpsed in the pages of Juniper Beri Beri.
A final single slipped out prior to Christmas '85 to end Strawberry Switchblade's year on a suitably strange note. A cover version of the country and western favourite 'Jolene', this saw Strawberry Switchblade give their final and most bizarre TV performance. Appearing on the lunchtime 'Pebble Mill At One' show, Rose and Jill created a most peculiar and gratifyingly punk-rock image.
Shoehorned into short PVC dresses, they wore a minimum of make-up and finally looked like the scabby witches they always insisted they were. Flailing their arms in that idiosyncratic windmill fashion, they displayed un-shaven armpits and clear ripples of flab. It was so un-glamorous, so utterly vicious and uplifting. It seemed like a last great Fuck You to the industry, and I for one was crying with delight. Despite that though, 'Jolene' was the one Strawberry Switchblade record that I never did buy.
That later date never did arrive though, and to this day I regret that gap in my collection. Record fairs, junk shops and jumble sales' record racks have all been scoured, but so far in vain. Perhaps one day When blinked intoStrawberry Switchblade were all but forgotten.
Dropped by Warners' subsidiary Korova, they slipped back into obscurity, with Rose flirting with various projects and Jill it seemed almost dissappearing from the face of the planet. By the time the second half of the decade lurched into action the notion of the New Pop too had become all but forgotten.
In the aftermath of Live Aid, Rock's Oldest Guard enjoyed a resurgence in popularity, and in harmony with the culture of the times it was overblown conservative pomp that ruled the day. No longer an arena for fancy and risk taking, the face of chart pop changed to grey, empty, gestural rock histrionics.
Phil Collins and Dire Straits were revered as teen idols, and even someone like the Eurythmics, who had begun with New Pop hopes, became sanitised dull fodder for Ford Sierra drivers.
The New Pop may have been stamped on by corporate Rock hippies in suits, Album), but the Underground was all the more vibrant as a result.
Paul Morley's reference points were to be seen in much of the insurgent independant scene, and the Creation label should have become the perfect New Pop label. Creation was flawed, but it was pure Pop obsession, and that was what counted. It's best acts and records showed off the New Pop influences perfectly.
That Strawberry Switchblade should find a welcome at the door of Creation was only to be expected. They came from the same tradition, and shared a lot from the past. A lot of the Faces at Creation had come from the same kinds of Glasgow punk and post-punk circles that Rose and Jill had come from, and the associations seemed only natural.
