The Republic (2)

The Republic (2)

The London-based Afro-Caribbean-Latin band was joined in 1982 by Sarah Jane Morris as lead singer. With enormous publicity from the music press including cover stories with NME and City Limits and a documentary for Granada TV, they were hailed as the band most likely to make it. But the band was deemed too political for radio play, with the honourable exception of Capital Radio. The Republic were signed to Charlie Gillet's Oval Records Ltd and released an EP entitled Three Songs From The Republic and two singles entitled One Chance and My Spies. Success did not follow and the band split up in 1984.

"My Spies" & "Three Songs From The Republic" are the same record. "Three Songs From The Republic" is actually the correct title for "My Spies"
