This awesome new wave band tee is for the group Re-Flex and it commemorates their 1984 World Tour designed to promote their album The Politics of Dancing. The album was released in 1983 by EMI Records, and its title track went on to become a massive international hit. In fact "The Politics of Dancing" quickly became the band's signature song, and its standout popularity made some people label the band as just a one-hit wonder. However, fans of the group can tell you they had a number of other enjoyable singles such as "Hurt", "Couldn't Stand a Day", "Hitline", "Praying to the Beat", and "Sensitive".
The Politics of Dancing was Re-Flex's debut album, but it was also their only release of the 1980s. The scheduled follow up, titled Humanication was supposed to premiere in 1985. One single from the album was released to the public. The song featured Sting on backing vocals and was called "How Much Longer". It centered around the important topic of environmentalism, but the rest of the record wouldn't be heard until 2010, when a six CD box set titled Re-Fuse was put together. The box set contained a re-mastered version of The Politics of Dancing as well as a plethora of previously unreleased material that had been scrapped back in the 80s, when the band left EMI Records after the company pulled their album for being "too political".
The tag says small but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult extra small. There are small repairs, see pics.
