Ultravox - Sleepwalk (1980) (HD)

So waddaya do when they never made an "Official Promo Video for a song ???

Simple... you cobble one together yourself out of some sticky back plastic and an old washing up liquid bottle ala Blue Peter style (well it was the 80's after all eh )!!!

Ok, it wasn't quite that simple as of course the live footage used came nowhere close to matching the studio cut recording but after much farting about, editing here there and everywhere I finally got the studio recording to sync and fit in with the live footage (simply cos I prefer the studio version)... :-)

Anywhoo you've probably seen this live footage before with it's live track and you heard the song before but you aint until now seen them both together like this, so here you have it the studio cut track put to some live footage... enjoy it or not the choice is yours... me, I quite likes it, in fact both of me does... :-)

It's Ultravox from 1980 with "Sleepwalk"... :-)

"Sleepwalk" is Ultravox's first single from their fourth album, Vienna, and their first with Midge Ure as frontman. It was Ultravox's first UK Top 30 chart hit, hitting the lofty heights of Number 29. As well as the standard black vinyl, the 7 Inch was released as a limited clear vinyl.

The single's B-side, "Waiting" is a more solemn, bass-laden affair in comparison to the faster synth work of the A-side. It now appears on the CD re-issue of Vienna as a bonus track, as well as various other Ultravox compilations.

The 12" release does not contain an extended version of the song, or a third/additional song, in fact it is simply a double A-sided promo single, with only "Sleepwalk" on each side.
