ABC release the single Poison Arrow in the UK.
Trevor Horn (record producer) : The first track we worked on was Poison Arrow. They first played Poison Arrow'like a sort of live band in RAK Studios, and they played it quite well because they were pretty good musicians, so we had a recording of them and I said, 'Is that what you want, or do you want it better?' And Martin Fry said, 'I want it as good as it can possibly be.' And I said, 'If you want it as good as it can possibly be we'll have to start again. And this is what I propose we do. We take the drum track and I'll program it into the TR808 exactly with David [Palmer, ABC's drummer]. We'll go through every note. And then we'll get a nice Simmons drum kit, so that will take care of the drum track, and then the bass part I'll program into this Minimoog and CV/Gate thing. We'll lay that down on tape and then you play on top of it. Play the drums and then play the bass, but we'll use it like 'tracing', you know?'
