ENDGAMES from SCOTLAND
ENDGAMES were formed in 1980 in Glasgow, Scotland and put out a few synth pop records. Several of these have become quite collectible and sound great even today. In my zip I'm going to give you a couple of my favorites both from 1983, Love Cares and Ecstasy. I can't stop listening to Ecstasy. It has just about all the elements I love in a dance song.
Waiting for Another Chance from their 1983 l.p. Building Beauty was a big hit in Germany breaking the Top 30 while Miracle in my Heart the b side of the delicious Ecstasy was later sampled by Heavy D.
If you haven't heard them I suggest you get their two album Building Beauty and Natural. You should find plenty to enjoy.
First, Last for Everything from 1982 is probably their biggest classic and a real seminal electronic dance song that went on to be a WBMX classic spun by greats like Frankie Knuckles.
