KajaFax: Media Update
Today’s impromptu post is a mix of video media both old and new.
Our first two clips demonstrate the global impact made by Kajagoogoo following the release of their debut single Too Shy. For our first clip, we travel to the United States of America. Hot on the heels of stable-mates Duran Duran, Kajagoogoo also had their sights set Stateside; and it seems that the American public were licking their lips in anticipation of their visit. ‘Too Shy’ had hit number one on charts all over the world and had, most encouragingly, raced into the US Billboard Charts, peaking at #5.
What we bring you now is a clip lifted straight from a radio recording of the Casey Kasem American Top 40 Countdown show, originally broadcast in 1983.
Kajagoogoo are also popular in Japan where, purists that they are, lip-synching on television appearances would appear to be somewhat frowned upon. YouTube user ‘nyuv’ has uploaded this great footage of the band performing Too Shy live in the studio.
In case you missed it, here it is!
Finally, we bring things more up-to-date with a solo stick recital from Nick, recorded only a few days ago. This really is a beautiful performance, so settle down, turn up the volume, and enjoy!
KajaFax returns in a few days time with a real treat for Limahl fans that you don’t want to miss!
See you then!!
