Support 88Nine And This Artist:

Re-Flex was a British electro pop group featuring Baxter (vocals), Paul Fishman (keyboards), Nigel Ross-Scott (bass), and Roland Kerridge (drums). Their only big hit song, "The Politics of Dancing," was recorded in 1982 and released in the U.S. in 1984, when it reached #24 and has since become a new wave radio classic. The follow-up single, "Hurt", hit the Billboard Hot 100 as well. However, interest in the group faded quickly, and the band's follow-up album, 'Humanication', was shelved and never released during the band's prime, although its first single-- "How Much Longer"-- did get released as a 12" single. "The Politics of Dancing" has been used in many places such as the 1985 movie 'Red' and the 1998 movie 'Edge Of Seventeen'. Paul Fishman went on playing with other artists, and 'Humanication' finally received a belated official release in 2010. Read more on Last.fm.
