Thompson Twins

The British band, Thompson Twins, were still pretty new wave in 1982. Named after the two bumbling detectives Thomson and Thompson in Hergé’s comic strip The Adventures of Tintin, they became a trio in ’82. Not twins and not related at all! The “Lies” music video played on MTV, featuring a room similar to the one at the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey, or perhaps a Magritte painting. I’ll play it at 5:40 and give away tickets to the Bing Crosby racing season at Del Mar. Enjoy the extended mix!
